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 Manchester based charity, Prevent Breast Cancer.

Charity ball poster  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 ground breaking research into the prediction and prevention of 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. A three course dinner will be served and accompanied by live entertainment in which musicians and singers bring La La Land to life with live performances requested by the audience.

Pam Glass, trustee of Prevent Breast Cancer said: “It’s incredible, that to mark its 35 year anniversary, BMI The Alexandra Hospital has chosen to celebrate by raising money for Prevent Breast Cancer. This will be a really fabulous event for a vital cause, so join us for the most glamorous night of the year!”

“The Alex has been delivering the highest standards of care to patients 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.”
