F1® Party to celebrate 10th anniversary with charity auction

24 Jun 2014

On Wednesday July 2, at London’s stunning V&A Museum, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and Formula One Management will host the official launch party for the 2014 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of this very special partnership, and the F1 community will be joining together to celebrate in style with a champagne reception, three-course meal and a host of entertainment.

The charity’s patrons, Tess Daly and Vernon Kay, will be hosting the evening, and one of the highlights of the event is sure to be the live on-stage Q&A featuring some of the famous faces of Formula One racing.

A host of luxury items and experiences will be sold through the night as part of the exciting live and silent charity auctions, including a number of desirable prizes sure to be of huge interest to the F1 fans in the room. The money raised will go towards a new state-of-the art surgery centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
