SHINE’s fifth annual Benefit Dinner was held on 9th November 2005 in the stunning surroundings of The Banqueting House.
Around 300 senior figures from the financial community and beyond showed their continuing support for SHINE’s work … and, of course, they enjoyed the usual fine food and wine, top class entertainment and dancing well into the wee small hours.
The event was set within the historic splendour of The Banqueting House, completed in 1622 by Inigo Jones for King James I to hold occasions of state, plays and masques. The evening featured: a champagne and cocktails reception; dinner underneath Rubens’ magnificent painted ceiling; comedy entertainment from Sean Lock; and a fabulous private concert by soul diva, Beverley Knight.
Sarah Brown, speaking on behalf of SHINE’s Patrons, congratulated us on the occasion on our fifth annual benefit dinner, thanked our many supporters and encouraged everyone to join with her in continuing to support SHINE for the next exciting phase!
