Stars of screen and sport descended on San Carlo in Highgate to support Vision Charity, a charity aiming to change the lives of blind, visually impaired and dyslexic children.
Champagne, musical entertainment, outrageous fashion and exceptional artworks combined to make the event an unforgettable night out.
The cabaret, fashion show and dinner attracted wonderful support from stars of sport and screen. The spectacular fashion show was organised by Image Boutiques with both Kara Tointon (Dawn in Eastenders) and her sister Hannah (former Hollyoaks star) modelling.
Melanie Sykes wore a diamond encrusted Van Cleef and Arpels watch that will be auctioned later in the year at Vision's signature event, the annual Vision Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel in December and Stephen Gately of Boyzone and Bucks Fizz star Cheryl Baker were among those who turned up to support the charity.
There was a fierce bidding war for the Picasso, Dali, Matisse and Renoir artworks auctioned by former England Rugby star Chris Sheasby contributed to the success of the event.
Vision Charity aims to raise money for the benefit of blind, visual impaired and dyslexic children. Vision's donations aim to maximise the potential of these children and to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families, teachers and carers.
