61 dapper CAFOD supporters attended the black-tie evening to help raise money for CAFOD’s ongoing Hungry for Change campaign.

The night’s events included a charity dinner and an auction for donated items such as a painting, wine tasting vouchers and a pendant and earrings.

The dinner was organised by Angelica Angles and Anthuanette Hidalgo, with help from a very hard-working and supportive team.

“Year after year the sisters of the Congregation of Our Lady (Canonesses of Saint Augustine) support CAFOD unconditionally” said Anthuanette. “They encourage all the More House students to participate in the different fundraisings during the year to benefit CAFOD. We thank them for their love and dedication towards it. We also thank Isabelle Bourette and Paola Batori for all their help to get donations, Chefs Edoardo Fenati and Chor Fai Shek and all the students of More House for making this event possible!”

The team leaders (L to R): Anand Luke Thachettu, Chee Yan Shek, Matt O'Dwyer, Anthuanette Hidalgo, Alphonsus Liew and Angelica Angles
