ROYAL HOSPITAL CHELSEA
The 100WHF London Gala was held on 16 October 2014 at Royal Hospital Chelsea, with the support of more than 250 leaders from the alternative investment industry. Gaby Roslin, WellChild Ambassador, was MC for the evening, and Lord Harry Dalmeny of Sotheby’s was auctioneer. Anne Richards, Chief Investment Officer at Aberdeen Asset Management, received 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ 2014 European Industry Leadership Award in recognition of her dedication to the financial services industry.
The event raised over £680,000 (gross) with net proceeds to WellChild.
100WHF was honoured to host HRH Prince Harry, who became a Patron of 100 Women in Hedge Funds' philanthropic initiatives for a three-year period in January 2013. 100WHF’s partnership with The Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry focuses on a selected charity each year - Action on Addiction in 2013, WellChild in 2014, and The Art Room in 2015 - and reflects 100WHF’s three philanthropic themes of mentoring, women’s and family health, and education.
