Blackhouse Leeds in the Pink!
On the 2nd October the Grill on the Square underwent a fabulous "pink over" to kick start a month of charity fundraising for Breast Cancer care. This event saw 75 of the lovely ladies of Leeds come together for an evening of networking with cocktails and pampering! Blackhouse Leeds in the pink!
The lighting in the restaurant had been given a glowing pink tint to set the mood and was buzzing with local businesses that had joined forces to create an army of the City's finest beauty and fashion professionals. Bacardi and Monin had kindly sponsored the drinks for the evening allowing Blackhouses' head bar tender Jack to create delicious Rose and Bubblegum Daiquiri's and Pink Grapefruit Cosmopolitan's as the ladies arrived. Harmony Hill and MyBeauty by Rachel provided relaxing and soothing massages to ease away the aches of the day's work before ‘Rebecca Charles salon' and ‘Ego Hair' kick started the party atmosphere by curling, manicuring, styling and providing desk-to-dusk looks and tips ready for the party season. We also had the wonderful team at Reiss on hand with the A/W collection, plus Stella & Dot Jewelry showcasing gorgeous party pieces.
For a bit of fun, we had 100 pink balloons which had been fixed along the wall allowing ladies to try their luck by popping them to win the array of donated raffle prizes. The group from Ernst and Young scooped the jackpot by winning the GHD styler and Folli Follie sunglasses!
The evening was a roaring success and raised nearly £1,000 in 2 hours with the ladies leaving us feeling thoroughly relaxed and glammed up with an arm full of goodies! We would like to thank everyone that kindly donated their time and products to make the event possible and to all the ladies who came down to support this fantastic cause. We look forward to continue raising funds throughout the month. Watch this space for our final total!
