Celebrities came out to support the eighth annual Star Ball at the Hilton Hotel, Liverpool One, in aid of Variety the Children’s Charity and the D. M. Thomas Foundation for young people.
Celebrity guests included boxer Paul Smith, Everton legends Ian Snodin and Kevin Ratcliffe, along with former Liverpool FC hero John Aldridge and Radio City 2’s Simon Ross.
The glamorous black tie ball was hosted by Peter Price. Guests were welcomed with champagne and canapés, followed by a four course dinner. Entertainment came from the sensational Ukebox band, while George Gallagher performed during dinner and The Soul Stars band got everyone on the dance floor with their party set.
To round the night off, the DJ Charlie C kept the music flowing with a selection of floor fillers.
The event raised over £40,000 for the charities with some amazing auction prizes including framed first team shirts from Everton and Liverpool FC, holidays at the Waldorf Shanghai and the Hilton Beijing and a fabulous Boodles ‘Decco’ pendant with diamonds in 18 carat white gold.
Hilton General Manager, Marcus Magee, said: ‘I am delighted that the Star Ball has raised so much to support disadvantaged children and young people. I would like to thank our team at the Hilton, our sponsors, those who donated prizes and bid for prizes and those who came along to support our ball.’
