On Tuesday 6th June, iconic Chelsea landmark, Bluebird Chelsea, hosted the Blossom City Gala Dinner in aid of Lady Garden Gynaecological Cancer Fund. This fabulous event was part of restaurant group D&D’s Blossom City campaign.

Guests included Daisy Lewis, Ollie Locke, Hugo Taylor and shoe designers Nicholas Kirkwood and Patrick Cox who were joined by Gynaecological Cancer Fund Committee members Chloe Delevigne with husband Ed Grant, Tamara Beckwith with Anouska Beckwith, Astrid Harbord, Emily Hambro, Bridget Barker, Kate Percival, and Mika Simmons. 

The evening commenced with a glittering Moët champagne & canapé reception followed by a  three-course wine paired dinner party (menu created by Executive Chef Liam Smith-Laing) and live auction hosted by Tamara Beckwith which raised over £25,000 for Lady Garden.

It was a showstopping event from start to finish, with entertainment throughout. A live raffle and auction took place with prizes including a Condé Nast experience complete with a 3-course lunch with Jeremy Wayne and a tour of Vogue House; a limited-edition photographic print by Anouska Beckwith; a 3-course meal for 6 at home cooked by critically acclaimed Italian chef Francesco Mazzei, chef patron of Sartoria in Saville Row;  jewellery from Alex Monroe and pieces from luxury boutique Baar & Bass; a membership to Grace Belgravia, London’s leading health, wellbeing and lifestyle club; and a weekend stay for 2 with breakfast at the 5* exclusive Mayfair hotel.

Many thanks to D&D for such a wonderful evening and for raising such a fantastic amount for the GC Fund.
