The Centre supported the International Dispute Resolution Centre’s fourth International Arbitration Charity Ball in London, which raised nearly £450,000 for the Save the Children charity. Funds raised will go towards assisting the victims of the Syrian civil law and other humanitarian crises.
Around 630 guests attended the Ball, which was held at London’s 15th Century Guildhall on 8 September, many wearing Venetian-style masks in line with the Ball’s “masquerade” theme for the evening.
The Centre’s Chairman, Brandon Malone, and Chief Executive, Andrew Mackenzie, attended the Ball, donating a prize of tickets for two to the Opening Night of the Edinburgh International Film Festival and luxury overnight accommodation. The Centre’s prize raised over £2,000 for the charity.
Andrew Mackenzie said:
“We were delighted to attend and support the International Arbitration Charity Ball again this year and particularly pleased that that our prize generated over £2,000 for Save the Children. As well as being a formidable fundraising event, it is a great opportunity to network with colleagues involved in international arbitration and promote the benefits of Scottish arbitration.”
