The worlds of property, finance and law will pit their wits against each other to raise much-needed cash for Acorns Children's Hospice.
Acorns Business Club will hold its fourth annual challenge, that tests teams' business acumen, on October 30 at the Birmingham headquarters of PwC, its 2006 sponsor, in Cornwall Street.
The battle follows on the success of the last three years' challenges where accountants have 'fought' the lawyers and raised £28,000.
All the proceeds went to the charity which is dedicated to supporting life-limited children and their families and recently had to shut down beds due to lack of funds.
" We're sponsoring this because it's such a worthy cause," said Robert Smith, director of PwC.
"It's also got a great track record for being a good networking event and part of the Midland social calendar.
Lorna Sheldon, Chairman of the Acorns Business Club, said: "The invitation is extended to all companies from the property industry - developers, surveyors, architects, builders, estate agents, accountants and lawyers - to pit their wits against the best minds the legal and financial professions have to offer. They pay just £1,000, regardless of their size, to enter a team of six.
"The game simulates running a business - the winner is the first to reach a profit target.
"It's great fun and should count towards continual professional development points given the business acumen it requires." n Any firm connected to the property, legal and financial industries is invited to enter. Call Lorna Sheldon on 07860 806381 for details.
