This year the team, delegates and suppliers at the Event Organisers Summit are fundraising to help a very special cause: the brave Arianna (pictured, above) and her fight against neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer.
We are supporting Arianna’s parents, Chris and Abigail, who are asking for your help to raise £300,000 for Arianna to enrol on the bivalent vaccine clinical trial in New York, which they hope will give her the best shot of keeping her cancer away.
Arianna needs to access this treatment without delay once she completes frontline treatment in October 2023.

How you can help
We are kindly asking everyone associated with the Event Organisers Summit, plus the wider industry, to donate whatever they can to help Arianna and her family.
There are many ways you can do this: by making a personal donation via Just Giving; by sharing and following her story on Facebook or Instagram , holding a fundraising event; getting sponsored to take on a challenge.
To donate by text, send ARIANNA followed by any whole amount up to £20 to 70085. This will cost your donation plus your standard network charge. It wont matter if you leave a space before the number, if you include a £ sign or whether you use upper or lower case.
If you would like to help to support Arianna’s campaign, please get in touch with the fundraising team on 0207 284 0800 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds raised will go towards helping Arianna and her family. If Arianna no longer needs the funds or is in remission five years post the end of successful treatment, the funds will be used to support other children and families affected by neuroblastoma through our activities. For children with high-risk neuroblastoma, like Arianna, the survival rate is much lower than other childhood cancers. Upon relapse, this rate reduces even further.
We thank your for your help.
