An elegant masquerade- City charity week dinner



On the 2nd of November 'City University London' held its charity dinner as part of charity week, to raise money for orphans and needy children. It was an amazing evening full of wonderful food, company and entertainment. The sisters only event was held at Maida restaurant in bethnal green. We had our own room away from the public which meant the sisters could let their hair down and enjoy themselves whilst raising money for a worthy cause.

Here are a few pictures from the evening





The dress code was elegant masquerade, a fab excuse to dress up and feel like a princess for the evening. Although I've always wanted to wear a mask I didn't the chance to go and get one, however, a few people did wear a mask and looked great.




















 For the event I wore a blue abaya made by my cousin
so thank you cousin =P
My cousin  brought one of her canvases with her and we auctioned off all three canvases for £100. All the money went to Islamic relief.


















Two of the sisters at the event sang Zain Bikha's 'Orphan child' nasheed beautifully mashaAllah I even had tears in my eyes. There was a cilla black style 'blind date' performance which made me laugh so much my jaw started hurting ...to all the sisters that took part, well done MashaAllah!


Everyone looked stunning mashaAllah and the event was a brilliant success Alhamdulillah.













I'd like to thank all the sisters who organised this event, I had the most amazing time and met some lovely people. Well done for persevering and not giving up even when the student union wasn't very helpful.
