When you're raising money to support contemporary art, a raffle just doesn't cut it.

The EC1-based Contemporary Art Society's annual fund-raiser is a spectacular event, attended by art world celebrities, such as Grayson Perry, and fabulous guests wearing inspirational, creative costumes. But there's a serious side to this glitzy gala, which raises vital funds to purchase new works of art for museums and galleries in the UK.

An auction of specially commissioned works from internationally renowned artists helped last year's event raise £240,000. The 2014 fundraiser takes place on 11 March at Tobacco Dock – apply to purchase table tickets online.
