We are thrilled to have received an amazing £10,000 donation from Halifax-based celebrity events company An Experience With!

The events company host exclusive black-tie dinner evenings at prime UK venues with well-known A-list celebrities from Film and Sport such as Al Pacino, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Conor McGregor.

The events feature a mix of live interviews and Q&A sessions with the stars, photo opportunities, memorabilia auctions and live music.

And they have kindly contributed £10,000 to CHSF from the proceeds of two of their events last year.

Their Events Director Stephen Olexy gained valuable insight into our cause when he visited the children’s cardiac ward at the Leeds Children’s Hospital to meet staff, patients and their families.

Mr Olexy told us:

We are proud to make a donation of £10,000 to the Leeds CHSF on the back of our recent successful events with Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in 2018.

An Experience With is growing into an international brand and on the back of our success we are proud to help a charity which is also based in West Yorkshire and a charity which is making such a significant difference to the children and parents who need it most.

Our CEO Sharon Milner (2nd from the right) attended the Robert De Niro event last year with CHSF staff members (from left to right) Ellie Brown, Sara Dawson-Jones, Olivia Richardson and Lisa Williams, and was over the moon with the £10k donation.

She said:

This hugely generous donation from a brilliant West Yorkshire business will help us continue our vital mission to support hearts for life. We can’t thank them enough.

I loved attending ‘An Experience With’, it was amazing to have such a world-class celebrity within reaching distance and overall we had a wonderful evening. Their events come highly recommended.
