Parties that raise money for charity are not unusual, but Global Party has taken the idea to a whole new level. Its organisers, Lord Stanley Fink and entrepreneur David Johnstone, first launched their venture in 2011, arranging 80 fundraising events in 71 cities to take place within a 24-hour period.
This year, however, they aim to put their past efforts in the shade with the launch of Global Party 360, a three-day event in June that will see 360 parties being held in a variety of venues, such as private homes, members’ clubs, yachts and hotels, in over 120 cities. Each soiree will support a local charity partner, while the £500 entry fee – for two tickets and a keyring that gives VIP privileges for life at many of the venues – will be donated to the Global Charity Trust, a newly established foundation that distributes funds to animal, education and child welfare causes worldwide.
This year The Global Party 2013 is proud to announce El Divino Belfast as an official venue host in Belfast. N.Ireland on 29th June 2013.
The money raised on the night in Belfast will aid Down’s syndrome Association and Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for children. Two of the official 360+ benefiting Children’s charities and their wonderful work.
