Property consultants Bilfinger GVA and design practice, Ryder Architecture joined together once again to sponsor the third annual Oktoberfest on 20 October at the new home of Wylam Brewery, in Exhibition Park, Newcastle.
The charity evening was attended by over 550 guests from the north east business community with all proceeds being split between two charities - Bright Red and Alzheimer’s Society.
Guests enjoyed a fun filled evening, sampling appropriate Oktoberfest food and drink whilst being entertained by local band, Groove Train. There was a host of opportunities throughout the evening to take part in raffles, silent auctions and to buy specialist ales to further support these fantastic charities.
Tom Baker of Bilfinger GVA commented, “It’s always a fantastic evening which attracts an amazing number of people. Most importantly we’ve raised lots of money two worthy charities”.
Jonathan Seebacher, architectural director at Ryder added, “We’re very proud to sponsor the evening again - the money raised is testament to the north east property and development community. We are delighted with the success of the event”.
