One Night Only 2019

5th March
In what has now become an annual tradition, One Night Only remains one of our favourite occasions of the year. Having launched it back in 2016, we've loved watching to grow over the years into an electric evening for all our friends and WAHF-family. 2019's event proved to be our most magical evening to date!

Celebrating our love of dogs and art, One Night Only is Wild at Heart Foundation’s exclusive evening of fine art and fundraising. It remains a unique opportunity to purchase stunning artworks by celebrated artists at a range of prices, whilst saving the lives of those dogs who need it most.

In 2019, we teamed up with our partner shelter in Thailand – Bon Jardin – to co-fundraise towards global dog rescue. Raising over £25,000 for dogs in need, funds from the event have gone on to pay for the sterilisation of hundreds of dogs, they build of a state of the art quarantine facility in Thailand, as well as supporting Wild at Heart Foundations ongoing shelter costs, helping to feed and treat the hundreds of dogs in the care of our fosters and shelters around the world.

Hosted for the first time at the stunning private members club, The Ministry, our 2019 event was our biggest and boldest to date! Artwork of all styles and for all budgets was displayed throughout the night, and guests enjoyed a truly spectacular evening of drinks, music and socialising. With music from DJs Nikki Beatnik and Harriet Rose, drinks from The Ministry’s finest baristas, and guest appearances from some of our wonderful adopters (and their WAHF dogs of course!), it was truly an evening to remember.

We would like to extend a huge, heart-felt thank you to everyone that helped make One Night Only the huge success it was. To all who so generously donated a piece of art, we are so grateful. We were blown away by the amazing array of art on display. Our thanks go out to:

A particular thank you goes out to Lord James Palumbo and Bon Jardin for their partnership and support, and to The Ministry for the delicious food and drinks, not to mention the breathtaking space. And to all the generous brands and partners who made our raffle so incredible: Bicester Village, Bird + Wolf, Butternut Box, Charlotte Simone, The Country Dog Hotel, DOG Magazine, Julie Birkett, The Lygon Arms, MeMe London, Mulberry, Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart, South Place Hotel London, & Timothy Han Editions.

Of course, the night would not have run so smoothly without our epic team of volunteers. Thank you to everyone who lent a much-appreciated helping hand, and to the incredibly talented Cat Arwel Photography for her stunning coverage of the evening.

One final thank you comes from the whole team here at Wild at Heart Foundation. We continue to be astounded by the kindness, compassion and dedication of our amazing community. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

With our sincere gratitude,

Nikki, Eleanor, Hannah, Olivia & Sofia xx
