On Sunday (7th April), Venture Beyond (VENBEYCAP) a private equity firm based in London. Raised over £230,00 at their ‘Flowers for Mrs Harris’-inspired Garden Party at their retreat in Hertfordshire. The Company’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Citizenship and Philanthropy, Mackenzie Robinson not only planned but hosted the event in support of the company’s charitable endeavors. It was a spectacular day, full of music and dancing all in aid of raising awareness and donations that will enable their Foundation to support and help grow entrepreneurship throughout the developing world.
Guests at the party enjoyed a spectacular outdoor garden, themed on the book turned musical and characters, based on the play, brought the event to life – taking guests on a storytelling journey from the moment they arrived. They were also joined by some very special celebrity guests who donated their time and talent to make the event an enjoyable success for all.
VENBEYCAP is responsible for the management of investments, landholding, and companies owned by American Entrepreneur Courtney Jordan. VENBEYCAP is also the owner of one of the UK’s fastest growing web hosting companies, Host Rite. Jordan who was absent from the event, was recently named in the London Power 100. “Since it’s founding, VENBEYCAP has sought to be an active participate in the global community”. Said Mandee Woodard, Executive Vice President of Business Affairs. “VENBEYCAP was founded with the same charitable sprit that is in our founder and that can be seen through our work in the states and now as we’ve grown throughout the developing world. “
Robinson adds, “I’ve had the privilege of working with the company’s foundation for many years. And I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work that’s been done. From its evolution from caring for children and young people who are under resourced to now joining the global war on poverty.”
The Garden Party was part of VENBEYCAP’s global commitment to work with others to deliver resources necessary to encourage and aid entrepreneurs in the third world. We used the power of storytelling to re-imagine the event; transporting the event and its attendees into an immersive Flowers for Mrs. Harris experience, which shows how we all dream of a better life.
In addition to VENBEYCAP, The Ball was supported by an array of prestigious companies and individuals who donated generously to help the charity raise as much awareness and donations as possible.
