We Will Rock You and Fundraising Extravaganzas
So sorry I haven’t written my blogette for a while, but I have been so busy. I have been working on We Will Rock You’s 10th Anniversary. I got to look after all the celebs on the night which was great fun. I meet so many stars like Robert De Niro, Mike Rutherford, Ben Elton, Roger Taylor to mention a few. I think it has to have been the best event I’ve been too. It was electrifying seeing Brian May and Roger Taylor playing Queen’s songs while we all waved our glow sticks! The after party was even better ‘cos I got to dance with Brian May, who I love dearly.
It’s been soooo busy at Variety too…The next morning I was up and out at Variety’s Props lunch. I booked the very funny Al Murray, who so kindly gave his time for free (What a man!) He was hilarious! We rasied close to £400,000 which is epic in this climate.
Next, was our wonderful Ambassador Aldo Zilli, who came to present a cheque of £1,175,000 from De Vere Venues to Variety. De Vere raised this money for us in three years which is amazing. Aldo was his cheeky self again; he is always upbeat and fun.
We are also working with The Italian Job, who are raising money for us. So the other day I asked my mate Robert Powell, who was in the film, to do a photoshoot with all the minis, and have also asked him to be the Ambassador for this amazing event. We may even go on the rally. Check out www.italianjob.com for more details.
