Carries, Samanthas, Mirandas, Charlottes and Mr Bigs from across the region gathered in all their finery at the Lowry Hotel, Manchester on Friday 25 September for the Sex And The City Charity Ball in aid of the Christie. The result of a night of food, booze, auctions and entertainment raised £6,800 for the specialist cancer centre in South Manchester.

Hosted and organised by local entrepreneurs, Simon Thompson and Phil Powell and former international swimming champion turned businesswoman, Emily Pedrazzini, auction prizes on the night included a weekend away to New York, flights to Europe and a personal shopping experience at Cricket Boutique in Liverpool. One lucky lady took home the ultimate prize of an exclusive visit to Boodles’ King Street store and her choice of an item of jewelry to the value of £1500.

Guests sat down to a three-course meal, whilst a string quartet provided the musical atmosphere. Later, Anita and the Manhattan Dancers took take to the stage for a showgirl extravaganza and as the night progressed Manolos and Choos were cast aside as fashionistas danced the night away with DJ John Locke. In true New York style, the frivolities continued until dawn at an after-show party at The Press Club.

The proceeds from the event will go towards The Christie’s plans for a £35m Patient Treatment Centre. As well as the new centre, which is set to become the largest early phase clinical trials unit in the world, the centre has a wish list longer than Carrie Bradshaw’s shopping list and includes specialist patient beds and treatment chairs, costing £1,500 each. Medical equipment alone would top a staggering £13m.

The event was very good, the artwork from the Generation Pop art gallery looked amazing and the piece they donated raised quite a bit of cash for Christies as well (I was outbid). Good on them and everyone else who raised money on the night.
