About Magic Blog Magic Dinner 2016 Our second annual Magic Dinner fundraiser was held on Monday 12th September at Hoi Polloi, the restaurant of Ace Hotel, Shoreditch. Jonny Woo (aka Pam the Professional Fundraiser) hosted the event, and the 140 guests were treated to the most delicious cocktails by Tony Conigliaro followed by a stunning six course meal cooked by seven of London's most talented chefs.
