News : TransPerfect-Sponsored Charity Ball Raises Money for Save the Children
New York, NY, USA & London, UK, Oct 4, 2016 -- TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS), a provider of litigation support services and technologies for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced that the International Arbitration Charity Ball, an event for which it’s the lead sponsor, raised more than £400,000 benefitting Save the Children.
The ball welcomed over 700 guests to London’s Guildhall on September 8. Guests took part in a live auction for an array of prizes donated by individuals and organizations, and made donations throughout the night to Save the Children’s Emergency Fund, which aids quick-response emergency needs.
Stephen Jagusch QC, Chair of the International Arbitration Charity Ball Committee, commented, "We would like to thank TransPerfect Legal Solutions for their continuing support of the International Arbitration Ball and Save the Children. We could not do this event to such a high standard of excellence without their support. The funds raised from last week’s event will go towards securing a better future for children in the UK and around the world."
"We are honored to support Save the Children and their incredible work improving the lives of children in over 120 countries around the world," commented TransPerfect Co-CEO Liz Elting, "Their work has a clear and substantial positive impact, and we’re grateful for the generosity of the International Arbitration Ball attendees to further this important cause."
Phil Shawe, Co-CEO at TransPerfect, said, "Having the honor to contribute to a mission as noble as improving the lives of children in need is exceptionally rewarding. Bringing together a group of people at this event, all of whom are motivated to give and make a difference in the world, is a great privilege for both me personally and for TransPerfect."
