Hilton Leeds City, part of Hilton Hotels & Resorts portfolio of hotels, is hosting their second Yorkshire Sporting Legends Charity Dinner following the success of last year’s event.
This year’s dinner will feature guest speaker Howard Wilkinson, former Leeds United F.C. manager and compere Lee Phelps and funds raised will be donated to Candlelighters and the DM Thomas Foundation.
Gary Morrison, general manager, Hilton Leeds City, said: “We are committed to making a difference to our community and this event is just one way we can support two great charities that have a significant impact on the lives of local children and families at a time when they need support.”
Amy Harrison, senior corporate partnerships executive for Candlelighters, said: “We are delighted to be one of the chosen charities supported by this Hilton Leeds City event.
“As a local charity it is fantastic to have such an iconic Yorkshire figure in Howard Wilkinson to share his stories of his time in football and at Leeds United. It promises to be an amazing evening and the money raised will help us continue to support Families across Yorkshire affected by childhood cancer. This event will make a real difference to our work.”
Individual tickets are £45 each. Tables for ten £400.
