Property sector to throw Snowball for children’s charities
Birmingham’s property and construction sector is set to raise thousands of pounds for disadvantaged children at one of the city’s biggest charity events.
The annual fundraiser and networking event, Snowball will take place at The Jam House in St Paul’s Square on Wednesday 30 November 2022.
It's been organised by the charity, Property for Kids, which comprises representatives from Barques and other local businesses that donate their time to raising funds for good causes.
The popular event is expected to attract an audience in the region of 600 property professionals, with each one donating a Christmas gift for local children.
Last year the event raised almost £7,000 for children’s charities across the West Midlands, with presents distributed to Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid and community events across the region.
The event is backed by local sponsors and includes live music by bands whose members all work in the property and construction industry.
Chairman of Property for Kids and Managing Director of Barques, Jilly Cosgrove, said: “The Snowball is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the property and construction calendar and never fails to deliver.
“We’re hugely grateful to all of the local businesses and individuals who organise, attend and sponsor the event. It really does make a significant difference to a whole range of fantastic charities that are striving hard to help children with physical or mental difficulties or those young people who simply have had few opportunities in their lives."
