Glittering evening brings 400 guests together for Marie Curie

Around 400 guests attended the 2023 West Midland’s Brain Game (WMBG) held at the ICC Birmingham, bringing together businesspeople from across the region to raise funds for Marie Curie. Known for being one of the biggest charity events held outside London, WMBG has raised more than £880,000 for Marie Curie Hospice, Solihull. Guests enjoyed a dazzling reception, three-course meal and celebrity-hosted quiz as well as a live and silent auction for one-of-a-kind items and experiences.
