It’s full-steam ahead for celebrities across Manchester as there are just three days left to prepare for the annual Star Ball at Deansgate’s lavish Hilton.

Popstar Lemar is set to headline the charity event alongside Coronation Street’s Jennie McAlpine (Fiz) and Key 103’s Mike Toolan – who will be hosting the auction night.

The champagne will be flowing as secret bidding wars are battled out to raise money for Cash For Kids and Manchester-based charity Mooswings – who help people recover from mood problems and the severe emotional distress they cause.

John McLaughlin, general manager of the Hilton, said: "We're delighted to be hosting our sixth annual Star Ball and to have such a great headline act in Lamar is fantastic.

“Hilton Manchester Deansgate is committed to supporting local charities and the work Moodswings does is unique in helping people cope with their emotions.

Guests will enjoy a sparkling reception and a four course meal during which a silent auction will take place to raise funds for the local charities.

Prizes up for grabs include return flights and accommodation in Abu Dabi, a personal haircut with Trevor Sorbie, dinner with Jennie McAlpine at her new restaurant, Annie's, and a one week all inclusive stay at Hilton Sharks Bay Resort in Egypt.

The event will take place in the hotel's newly refurbished Cloud 23 restaurant, which overlooks the city centre.

Emma Brown, charity manager at Key 103 Cash for Kids said: "We are very excited about Moodswings getting a platform to highlight the work it does in the Star Ball and are very grateful to Hilton Manchester Deansgate for appointing us this year's beneficiary of their fantastic annual event.

“If people are looking for a night to remember for a worthy cause the Star Ball is just the ticket!"

Hilton Manchester Deansgate's Star Ball will take place on Saturday October 13. And tickets are still available starting from £75.00 per person, with tables for ten starting at £750.00.
