CooperAitken marks a century in style
Stalwart members of CooperAitken’s past joined the current team and their partners for an evening to remember at the weekend.
The event was at the Wallace Gallery to mark the accounting firm’s 100 years of being in business. String quartet Musica Viva greeted the 150 guests as they entered the gallery, setting the elegant tone for the evening.
The ladies of CooperAitken came out in stunning style, as were their dapper companions who were dashing in their upscale best. Bubbles flowed from the start, joined by an array of canapes that led into a dinner all provided by Cambridge caterers Gourmet Delicious.
Through the meal CooperAitken board chairman Gavin Haddon was MC for the evening, sharing fond memories of his life with the firm amidst other speakers including distinguished leaders from the company’s past, all taking pride in what has evolved and what the future holds.
Once the speeches were done and a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday was sung as the massive cake was presented, Tim Armstrong Band struck up their tunes in the adjoining gallery as the guests danced on till the midnight hour.
Guests said it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and fantastic tribute to a century of CooperAitken’s service to the community. The company wish to thank everyone who helped to make it a night to remember.
PAST DIRECTORS: Gary Cave, Alan Bannin and Bruce Sexton.
