03 Dec Gray & Adams sponsor Friends of ANCHOR Masked Ball
We were honored to be the title sponsor at this year’s Friends of ANCHOR Masked Ball. The ‘Emerald City’ themed event saw around 400 guests follow the yellow brick road to reach the gates to the city, both of which were donated by Gray & Adams, helping to create a wonderful atmosphere.
Friends of ANCHOR is an Aberdeen-based charity which has been serving oncology and haematology patients throughout the northeast of Scotland, since 1997.
The event, which takes place every two years, raised an amazing £150,000 that will go towards the Anchored Together appeal, which is a drive to raise £2million for a new ANCHOR centre at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
We were delighted to receive the following message of thanks from Masked Ball committee member Gordon Hutcheon:
“Thank you Gray & Adams. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to thank you personally for being the title sponsor. I have been involved with Friends of ANCHOR for many years and have known the Gray family for the last three of those. They are one of the most generous businesses and families in the northeast and as a former patient I’ve seen first hand the difference that it makes.”
Joint Managing Director, Peter Gray, said of the event,
“As a family business based in the northeast it is very important to us that we support local causes. Friends of ANCHOR is a charity close to our hearts and we are delighted to support the great work they do for our community.”
