On Friday 10th February, Boisdale of Canary Wharf hosted an exclusive evening where we celebrated the first ‘Boisdale Woman Of The Year’ event.
The night saw Whoopi Goldberg crowned Boisdale Woman Of The Year with the award being presented by Rebecca Ferguson, the English singer songwriter and JB Gill best known as a former member of boy band JLS. Whoopi is one of the few entertainers to have won an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award, an Oscar and a Tony Award, an incredible feat. A celebrated comedian, actress, author and now television host on The View, her most memorable film roles include Ghost, The Color Purple and Sister Act.
A champagne and cocktail reception marked the start of the night followed by a sumptuous 3 course menu. The dinner was followed by outstanding performances by Sing Gospel, a local community choir based in Acton and Jeremy Sassoon, a regular at Boisdale who performed the Ray Charles Project.
