Deputy President (Finance & Services) Jon Matthews has made the final two VIP tickets to the Centenary Ball available on eBay.
On Friday he announced to the 100 people on the dinner waiting list that he had been unable to increase the capacity of the dinner, but that one pair of VIP tickets would be made available for auction. The tickets, which include access to the VIP area, were available to alumni for £85 and include a quantity of free champagne.
All profits from the ball will go to Centenary projects, including the Beit redevelopment. 25% of the proceeds of the auction are ring-fenced for the Student Opportunities Fund, which provides support for students struggling to afford their studies in London.
At the close of play on Friday the Centenary Ball had taken nearly £62,000 in sales, with around 1,500 people attending. Bidding for the tickets closes on the 11th June and current stands at £31.
