|Reserve Dinners, what are they?
$75,000 raised for charity when Sir Richard Branson attends Reserve Dinner, pictured here with organizer Mike Faith and Rick Mills & Shaun Masterman.
After the Reserve Dinner with Sir Richard Branson one guest commented that,
“We left the table feeling all the better for having met and listened to Sir Richard, who is truly inspiring. I valued meeting some of the other guests too. And it felt good to have helped raise over $75,000 for the Virgin Unite charity, because we know that 100% of our donations go straight to making a positive difference, especially in Africa.”
Picture this...One evening, you’re meeting one of world’s greatest achievers, face-to-face in a casual, convivial environment.
After enjoying pre-dinner drinks and conversation with the other guests (ten to fourteen other interesting people), the honored guest arrives and you're introduced in person.
At dinner you enjoy good food, fine wine and great conversation. The relaxed and casual atmosphere encourages interesting, free and wide-ranging conversation.
The honored guest at each dinner is a celebrity leader from the world of business, sport, or world affairs. Each dinner raises funds for the good cause they nominate.
