MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - Hilton Manchester Deansgate is set to host its most lavish Star Ball to date as a host of celebrities, including many soap and football stars, confirm their attendance at the event on Saturday 13th October.

The glitzy fundraising ball is set to be packed full of quality entertainment, with Lemar taking time out from his new album's promotional tour to wow guests with a soulful performance. All funds raised will go to a charity partner of Hilton in the Community Foundation which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. This year, local charity partner, Key 103's Cash For Kids will donate the proceeds to Moodswings - an award-winning Manchester based charity founded to help people recover from mood problems and the severe emotional distress they can cause.

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 evening will be hosted by Moodswings ambassador, Jennie McAlpine who plays Fiz Stape on Coronation Street and Key 103 Breakfast presenter, Mike Toolan.

John McLaughlin, general manager, Hilton Manchester Deansgate, 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. Tickets are always a sell-out so I'd advise people to book quickly to avoid disappointment and help make a huge difference to an important cause."

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 13th October. Tickets are available from £75.00 per person, with tables for ten starting at £750.00.
