 The Bench Events Charity Auction at AHIF

Bench Events is very proud to support The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) as the designated charity for AHIF 2018. The DSWT works to put an end to poaching, preserve endangered habitats, treat injured wild animals and to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned animals so that they can return to the wild when grown.

The auction took place during the AHIF evening networking reception at the Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel. Delegates had the chance to contribute to this amazing cause by bidding for two exclusive and unique Elephant Adoption packages, sponsored by Finch Hattons Luxury Tented Camp and Angama Mara. We also auctioned four wonderful vouchers donated by Hilton, Mantis Collection, Onomo Hotels and The Machrie Hotel through silent auction.

We were thrilled to raise a total of $38’000 throughout the evening. All funds have been donated directly to The DSWT to support their work in the rescue of orphaned elephants and the protection of Kenya’s wildlife.
