Doubling up as the formal ‘celebration of the life and legacy’ of Daniel De-Gale, the inspiration for our charity, we will mark 10 years since Daniel passed away. The much-loved event will also serve as a fundraiser to support our necessary lifesaving work within the area of stem cell (bone marrow), blood and organ donation.

For 10 years, the Gift of Life Ball was the most talked about charity event on the African Caribbean social calendar, with over 50 celebrities, entrepreneurs and professionals from diverse backgrounds in attendance, receiving press coverage by a wide range of print and broadcast national media.


Fancy having a celebrity as your table host to provide you with a fun-filled money can’t buy experience for you and fellow guests attending? Well consider it done. This could be you and your tribe, enjoying an evening of laughs, conversation, networking and more with a celebrity of your choice.  Celebrity table hosts were a key part of the previous 10, ACLT Gift of Life ball’s and the return of this year’s will be no exception.

Feeling excited over the thought of you and your friends enjoying a delicious 3 course dinner at a swanky location in Mayfair, with your VIP table host keeping you and yours entertained throughout the night? Then it’s advisable for you to book your ticket today, because once the celebrity tables are booked, they are gone.

You and your friends could be dining with top personalities we have secured from the world of TV, Music, Sport and Comedy and who in previous years have been biting to fill these roles.  The very thought of many of them wanting to do this all over again has us super excited that this year’s Gift of Life’ Celebrity Black & White Charity Fundraising Ball, is going to be on another level!
