Nikos Fund Grand Prize Draw
One of the highlights of the final day, the Nikos Fund Grand Prize Draw gathers those diehard ILMC members who make it through to the Friday afternoon, as a fun-filled prelude to the closing drinks party.
Each year, ILMC raises a significant amount of money for a charity of its choice in honour of the Nikos Fund, with the worthy 2018 recipient being Music Support, an organisation that provides help and support for individuals in any area of the music industry who are suffering from alcoholism, addiction, emotional or mental health issues.
With a variety of prizes on offer, among the lucky winners who had their business cards drawn out of the bowl were: A Greener Festival’s Claire O’Neill, a weekend stay for two at Rocco Forte’s newly renovated Hotel Savoy in Florence; The Flying Music Company’s Nicholas Fincher is looking forward to a two-night stay for two people in a hotel of his choice from the Design Hotels portfolio; and Siren Management’s Audrey Clonch won a four-night, all-expenses-paid trip to Tune In Tel Aviv in Israel, courtesy of event organiser Jeremy Hulsh of Oleh Records.
Of course, there were many other names pulled out of the hat, but as the floor of the SMG Space Bar can testify, you have to be in the room to win!!
