Aside from publicising the Hawn Foundation’s UK arm, the agency has assisted with the charity’s annual fundraiser held at Annabel’s. Now a firm fixture on the London social calendar, it attracts a host of celebrities, while Duffy, The Feeling, Pixie Lott and Rebecca Ferguson are just some of those who have performed. Jori White PR introduced Lord Harry Dalmeny, Chairman of Sotheby’s, to the foundation. For the inaugural event in March 2012, he acted as auctioneer, and has been involved ever since. The agency uses its contacts to create money-can’t-buy auction items, such as a private dinner party cooked by Tom Parker Bowles and a behind-the-scenes tour of a Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
