BAAF fundraising and social evening hosted by Oona King

Date:25 MAR 2009

The British Association for Adoption & Fostering (BAAF) is hosting a fundraising/networking/social event aimed at women working in the legal and business world.

The event is being held to raise money for BAAF to continue their work helping some of the most disadvantaged children in the UK - children who have been separated from their birth families often as a result of abuse or neglect. Every year they help to find permanent new families for hundreds of vulnerable children.

The event is called 'Bag Ladies' and will be hosted by Oona King, herself an adoptive mum. The evening will be an opportunity for women working in the legal and business worlds to meet and network at a champagne reception. There will also be the chance to win one of the beautiful hand bags which have been kindly donated by top designers, in a silent auction and prize draw.

The details are:
