The annual Denise Welch Charity Ball, organised by Entertainment Today, celebrated its 15th anniversary on Saturday 19th November 2016. The glamorous event, which is themed extravagantly each year, transported guests to the city that never sleeps where they experienced a magical New York Christmas.
Guests entered into the Den’s Diner themed champagne reception where they were entertained by authentic New York Jazz, alongside a magnificent performance by Manchester’s own New York Rockettes. Snow began to fall as guests were invited to take their seats in the stunning central park dining room, where they were entertained throughout dinner by a unique, one night only performance by The Professionals on Ice; the pro skating team from ITV’s Dancing on Ice who were joined by the hostess herself, Denise Welch.
Crooner Richard Shelton entertained guests with his smooth swing set before the evenings charity auction raised an amazing amount of money for Rochdale based charity: The GEM Appeal. The Jersey Guys continued the New York theme and ensured the dance floor was packed before Yvette Royle took to the stage to keep the party going until the early hours.
