On Saturday 10th November 2012, Grey Goose hosted its annual Grey Goose Winter Ball to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation at London’s iconic landmark, Battersea Power Station.
Although HIV prevalence is much lower in Nigeria than in other African countries such as South Africa and Zambia, the size of Nigeria’s population means that by the end of 2009, there were an estimated 3.3 million people living with HIV.
Africa is home to only about 14.5% of the world’s population, and yet as at 2009 it was home to 69% of all people living with HIV and to 72% of all AIDS deaths.
The event marked the sixth year of the Grey Goose Winter Ball to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and the prestigious fund-raising event was attended by the international celebrities including: Labrinth, Kevin Spacey, Emeli Sandé and Elizabeth Hurley. Nigeria’s own Elizabeth Elohor Aisien, owner of Beth Model Management and Director of Elite Model Look Nigeria; her husband, business executive Owen Aisien; and Managing Director of GDN Nigeria Limited, Alex Kothoor were also present at the event.
An unforgettable night, the theme of the Grey Goose Winter Ball was the 1950’s Cote D’Azur. The exclusive event combined world-class cuisine with bespoke Grey Goose cocktails, as well as live music performances by Emeli Sandé and Labrinth.
