Investment fund firm, Imperium Investments, is backing Care of Police Survivor's (COPS) Winter Ball.
Founder and chief executive of Imperium Investments, Dmitry Leus, is sponsoring the fundraising event which aims to raise significant funds for COPS, a national charity which supports the surviving families of police officers and staff who have died on duty.
Dmitry, whose family run fund is well known for its philanthropic work, said: “I am honoured to be supporting COPS Winter Ball 2020.
“My father was a policeman for 30 years, so I believe, I personally understand how hard they work and how hard it can be on their families sometimes.
“The work COPS do is very impressive, the support they give and the community they have built for survivors is really special.
“I am proud to be involved in such a great charity and know that all of the money raised will be going to a good cause to help continue their support.”
On 1 February 2020, COPS is hosting a spectacular black-tie ball at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
The event will include a drinks reception, a three-course dinner, entertainment from the Fabulators, and a chance to win some once-in-a-lifetime lots in an exclusive auction.
The charity's Patron, Penny Lancaster, a model, photographer, TV personality and wife of Rod Stewart, will also be attending.
COPS chief executive, Tim Buckley, said: “We have been completely overwhelmed by the generosity shown by Dmitry and his team at Imperium Investments.
“By supporting COPS and sponsoring our Winter Ball, the business is helping us to support the surviving families of police officers who have sadly died in their line of duty.
“It’s going to be a wonderful evening – made even more so by Dmitry’s generosity.”
Tickets are still available for the Winter Ball and can be purchased through the charity’s website ukcops.org/winter-ball.
