Hospitality Action's perfect night out

HA%20logo.jpgNick Hornby would have enjoyed last Friday's Hospitality Action Ball at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Novelist and Arsenal fanatic Hornby once described the perfect football match as having as many goals as possible, a noisy crowd and a punch-up.

The HA Ball managed to net three goals: awarding the companies and individuals that have done most to support it in the past year, giving guests a great night out and raising a magnificent £100.000. Certainly, the crowd was good-naturedly raucous. And yes, there was even a fight - two dinner-jacketed alpha males squared up to one another towards the end of the evening, giving a whole new meaning to Hospitality Action.

Well done to the GM of the Dorchester Hotel, Chris Cowdray, who managed to pull the men apart with the deft decisiveness of a Govan landlord at kicking-out time.

Well done, too, to Penny Moore and all at HA for a great evening.
