Hollywood glamour comes to Manchester for charity ball

The glamour of Hollywood is coming to Manchester as BMI The Alexandra Hospital celebrates its 35th anniversary with a ‘La La Land’ themed charity ball, in partnership with Prevent Breast Cancer.

The event, which will take place on Friday 16th June at The Midland Hotel, will see colleagues, patients and staff come together to celebrate the milestone in the hospital’s history and raise money to fund research and treatment to prevent breast cancer.

With a dress code of ‘Hollywood glamour’ and black tie, guests are expected from all over the north west with local celebrities attending to show their support and all money raised will be given to Prevent Breast Cancer. With World Class musicians and dancers bringing La La Land to Life! You will be entertained in true LA style where screen will become reality! 

Urmston's Wayne Devlin, who is regarded as one of the finest Rat Pack vocalists in the U.K. will be providing the sounds of swing and jazz with renditions of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett to bring the authentic feel of Hollywood glam. 

“The Alex has been delivering the highest standards of care topatients for 35 years and this event is the perfect way to celebrate" says hospital Executive Director, Simon Shepherd.

"Despite the fact that we have the best equipped private hospital outside London, we are in the middle of an £8m investment program to ensure that we continue to offer exceptional facilities. However, it is the people that make The Alex so special – the patients that are at the heart of everything we do, the exceptional clinicians and the clinical teams that run the hospital.”

In addition to individual ticket sales, sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information and to buy tickets, please contact Entertainment Today Events on 0161 484 0876 or info@entertainmenttoday.co.uk. More details can be found at www.entertainmenttoday.co.uk/lalaland
