EIM's Arpad Busson has secured a pair of royal headliners for the firm's 10th anniversary charity gala in London this summer.
Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, will make their first public appearance as a married couple at the Absolute Return for Kids dinner on June 9, they announced yesterday. The newly-minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not been seen in public since their April 29 wedding, although the couple met with U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama during their visit to London last month.
The prince, second in line to the British throne after his father, will address the 900 guests at the ARK reception before a private dinner. Guests will pay £10,000 apiece to sup with the royals, who will follow their first public engagement with their first trip abroad, to Canada and the U.S.
ARK raises money for disadvantaged children worldwide. The annual gala features a charity auction, and annually raises more than £10 million.
Camila Batmanghelidjh's charity Kids Company provides a full-time social worker who 'digs deep', and a floating team of 16 therapists sign in as needed. 'Some children disclose things that we need to act on, others have simply fallen out with their best friend,' Rachel Nichols, who leads the Kids Company team, says. This, coupled with the geography of the building, means there are few places to hide. Children don't gather anywhere in groups of more than two.
My concern over this ARK gala event, is that since this will be Prince William's and Kate Middleton's first public engagement, the event has the potential for global publicity, and possibly without those of us who see what ARK's underlying agenda really is, actually knowing about this global publicity.
It seems it is already getting it.
