October 24, 2013 | London, England
100 Women in Hedge Funds' annual London Gala will be held on Thursday, 24 October 2013 at The State Apartments at Kensington Palace for the benefit of Action on Addiction. 100WHF will also honor Dame Amelia Fawcett DBE, Chairman, Hedge Fund Standards Board in London, with the 100WHF 2013 European Industry Leadership Award. The Gala caps the year's fundraising initiatives and brings together many industry leaders, supporters and friends in a truly spectacular setting for a memorable evening.
Action on Addiction, a member of The Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, is the only UK charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional education and family support. The Duchess of Cambridge became Patron of Action on Addiction in January, 2012. Funds raised by 100WHF will specifically support the M-PACT (Moving Parents and Children Together) program which seeks to make a difference to children in families suffering the consequences of parental substance misuse.
