Annie Haak Designs goes wild to raise money for children's charities
'Strictly Come Skiing' is the theme for this year's Wild Girls on Snow event begin held from 14th-17th March in Klosters, Switzerland. Annie Haak Design's very own Emma Pounds, who takes care of all matters media and PR, will be one of this year's wild bunch, hoping to raise as much money as possible for children's charities, whilst fooling around on a pair of skis.
The unique and fun skiing event, which is organised by Clair Southwell former PA to the Prince of Wales, is in it's 11th year, and has raised over £200,000 for children's charities and breast cancer charities. A three-day event of gala dinners, ski races and challenges, attracts celebrities, models and sports women from around the world, each paying for the priviledge of taking part.
The programme of activities this year include: ‘Wild Girls Derby’ on the famous Parsenn Derby Course and The Wild Girls Strictly Dance Challenge (on snow of course).
The highlight of the event is a gala dinner with a charity auction that last year raised £27,000 for children's charities Katie's Ski Tracks, which organises activities for disadvantaged children in Britain, and Right to Play, which gets children in developing areas of the world involved in sport and games.
Lots up for grabs in this year's auction include: a 2010 Chopard Happy Sport donated by Schauerte, dinner for 4 at Mosimann’s Private Dining Club to include champagne and wines, donated by Anton Mosimann, and sterling silver charm bracelets and necklaces from Annie Haak Designs' 2010 jewellery collection.
The proceeds of this year's Wild Girls event will go to the following charities:
