King’s College Hospital Benefits from TONI&GUY’s Successful Summer Soiree

The TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation proudly announces the success of their Summer Soiree, which raised funds for the TONI&GUY ward at King’s College Hospital. The event took place on 8th June 2024 at the Mascolo family’s private estate, offering an evening of immersive fundraising experiences to support critically ill children, their families, and NHS staff.

Founded in 2003 by Toni Mascolo OBE and his wife Pauline, the Foundation has long been dedicated to charitable causes. The Summer Soiree upheld their mission and legacy, demonstrating a commitment to making a difference.

Lilia Mascolo, Director and Trustee, shared her delight with the event’s outcome: “We are thrilled with the incredible reception of our innovative summer soirée, a groundbreaking concept in immersive fundraising. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are deeply grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, who made this event possible. It was an honour to have the renowned Nobu Hotel London Portman Square serve their culinary masterpieces, adding a touch of elegance to the evening. We extend a special thanks to Steven Webster for donating a diamond for our exclusive raffle. The funds raised will make a significant impact on the TONI&GUY Ward at King’s College Hospital, and we are humbled by the community’s support for this worthy cause.”

Hosted by Pierre and Lilia Mascolo, the event welcomed 250 guests, including dignitaries such as Prince Jerome Luc Muniglia de’Giustiani and Karen Millen OBE. Andrea McLean hosted the raffle and auction, while Lettice Rowbotham performed on the violin.

The evening featured canapés from Nobu Catering, with the Italian Chefs Association providing additional catering. Think Wine supplied the exclusive wine, while Labo and Solaro Capri offered spirits and cocktails.

For the first time, the Foundation introduced immersive fundraising experiences, allowing guests to participate in interactive installations and unique activities to raise awareness and funds for the TONI&GUY ward. This innovative approach aimed to create a lasting connection with the Foundation’s mission.

Support from luxury brands and partners was instrumental in bringing the immersive experiences to life. Their contributions played a crucial role in enhancing the lives of young patients at King’s College Hospital.

Funds raised from the Summer Soiree will benefit the TONI&GUY ward, ensuring the hospital continues to provide top-tier care for young patients. The Foundation’s support is essential in maintaining high standards of treatment and facilities for children and their families.

The TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation thanks all supporters, donors, and partners for their dedication. Pierre Mascolo, Chairman and son of Toni Mascolo, OBE, stated, “Together, we can continue and carry on my mother and father’s legacy, creating a brighter future for seriously ill children and their families.”
