Hilton Star Ball raises over £40k for charity

HILTON Hotel, Liverpool One, hosted their 8th annual STAR BALL recently to support Variety the Children’s Charity and the D. M. Thomas Foundation for young people.

The glamorous black tie ball was hosted by Peter Price.  Guests were welcomed with a champagne reception and canapés, followed by a sumptuous four course dinner. 

Celebrity guests supporting the Ball 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.

Entertainment included performances from the sensational Ukebox band, whilst George Gallagher performed during dinner and The Soul Stars band filled the dance floor with a party set.  To round the night off legendary DJ Charlie C  kept the music flowing with a selection of floor fillers.

The event raised over £40,000 for the nominated charities with some amazing auction prizes including the ever popular framed first team shirts from Everton and Liverpool FC, 5 nights at the Waldorf Shanghai and 3 nights at Hilton Beijing and a fabulous Boodles ‘Decco’ pendant with brilliant cut diamonds in 18 carat white gold.

Hilton Liverpool city centre General Manager, Marcus Magee, said:  “I am delighted that the 8th Hilton Liverpool Star Ball has raised so much to support disadvantaged children and young people.    I would also like to sincerely thank our team at the Hilton, our sponsors, those who have donated prizes and bid for prizes and most of all those who came along to support our Ball”.
