Dr Nilesh R. Parmar’s Ice White Charity Christmas Party made a return in December, enticing over 300 guests on board HMS President and raising over £2,000 for this year’s chosen charity, Operation Christmas Child (OCC).
Nilesh commented, 'I am thrilled with the success of Ice White 2013 and the incredible amount we have raised for OCC. I’m also extremely thankful for all those who returned for a second year of celebrations and of course welcome new friends. I look forward to seeing you all again next year.'
OCC is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project, run by the charity ‘Samaritan’s Purse’; sending gift-filled shoeboxes around the world to underprivileged children. All funds raised at the charity event will go towards OCC shipping costs to help children in more than 150 countries experience the true joy of Christmas.
The lavish event wowed guests not only with its fantastic location but with live entertainment, the fun-filled photo-booth and of course the dental handpiece shaped ice sculpture. Guests were invited to contribute to the charity raffle, which saw lucky individuals win a Samsung Galaxy S4, a trip for two to La Toque, France and £100 shopping vouchers to name just a few. Celebrations carried on well into the early hours of the morning at the new members club Carriage 34, in Waterloo.
