The seventh annual Grouse & Grape Luncheon held on Tuesday 10 October 2017 at Spencer House, London attracted over 330 guests who helped raise over £34,000 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.
This year the event - supported by headline sponsor CRUX Asset Management and official media partners www.thewealthnet.com and www.eprivateclient.com - was attended by figures from the wealth management sector who were treated to seasonal grouse alongside selected cheeses and fine wines.
“The Grouse & Grape Luncheon is a hugely fun and delicious buffet at Spencer House, the magnificent eighteenth-century former town house of the Spencer family,” said Michael Maslinski, chairman of the Grouse & Grape Committee.
“This well-loved event gathers together an unrivalled group of over 330 decision-makers from the investment, wealth management and family office world. The purpose is to support the critical work of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, a lean and efficient charity which gives a high proportion of funds raised to their end cause of funding research to find a cure for the disease.”
Parkinson’s is a degenerative neurological condition characterised by tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement and balance problems, as well as non-movement related symptoms such as chronic pain, sleep disturbance and depression.
People with Parkinson’s still rely on the same treatments that were first prescribed in the 1960s and there is an urgent need to find effective treatments that will change the course of the disease and ultimately a cure.
“We’re very grateful for the generosity of everyone who attended The Grouse & Grape Luncheon this year,” added Helen Matthews, chief operating officer at The Cure Parkinson’s Trust. “The charity remains focused and more determined than ever to raise the funds needed to ensure the best research gets underway to defeat Parkinson’s once and for all.”
The Cure Parkinson’s Trust funds innovative research and inspirational scientists, dedicated to driving treatments that can slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s and offering hope to the 10 million people living with Parkinson’s around the world.
In 2018 the Grouse & Grape Luncheon will take place in October (date TBC). For ticket and sponsorship queries please contact Sarah Gibling/Maisie Johnson at 020 7487 3892 or email@example.com.
