Over CHF 3 000 was raised for disadvantaged youth in rural Nigeria and for the IM Alumni graduation prize at the Bid for a Boss event on Thursday 27 April. Fifteen bosses, all offering unique opportunities, went under the hammer with most of the proceeds going to a charity set up by alumnus John Uwaeke. Apart from the entertaining auction (thank you, Robert) there was time to network and have fun.
Supporting this event were loads of others: Pernod Ricard sponsored with a great bar and mixologist, and food (soups, ice cream, nibbles) were offered. Student volunteers manned the bar. And two photographers (Corinne Köpfli and Kierin Mulholland) documented it all.
We’ll be posting more soon to give you the details of the fundraising and what happened next when the “winners” called in their bids. There were also separate donations of money and laptops to C4C, some bosses offered a second service and there are more pix in the pipeline – so there’s loads to still let you know about. Meanwhile, all we can say, is a very big thank you to all of you.
