Bolton Wanders Captain Kevin Davies has announced a celebrity packed  line-up for the first Kids of Bolton Masquerade Ball taking place in the  prestigious Premier Suite at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday 5 March. 

Britain’s Got Talent sensation Escala will open the star studded event  by fusing contemporary sounds with classic instruments followed by  Bolton boy and presenter of Saturday night’s ‘Take Me Out’ Paddy  McGuinness providing the comedy for the evening. Pop rock band McFly,  with fifteen Top Ten hits to their name, will headline the fantastic  evening of musical entertainment before Radio One’s DJ Spoony closes the  night with some tunes.

Selfridges, Trafford Centre – recently voted the world’s best  department store - have also pledged their support for the charity  fundraiser of the year by donating eight hundred gift bags for all  dinner guests. There will also be an auction of signed sporting  memorabilia.

Kevin Davies said, “We are very excited about the Masquerade Ball and  are delighted that such high profile entertainers have offered their  services to support Kids of Bolton. Every penny of the funds raised from  the evening will go towards helping those under the age of 18 who find  themselves affected by difficult circumstances whether they are poverty,  disability or social and economic troubles. If Kids of Bolton can help  in some small way to make a child’s life better or easier for them, then  we will be achieving our aims.”

Kids of Bolton was officially launched with a golf day in October 2010  by Kevin and his wife Emma. The aim of the charity is to offer support  and activities to youngsters under the age of 18 living in the Bolton  area to help develop their skill and capability to participate in  society as independent, mature and responsible adults. The charity is  particularly interested in helping those who would like to get involved  in sport, but may be held back by financial constraints.

The Masquerade Ball is the third fundraiser since the launch of Kids of  Bolton in October 2010 – the Golf Day and a Ladies Lunch in December  both raised around £25,000 each.

This event will host celebrities from the world of television and  football including Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward, Bolton Wanderers Chairman  Phil Gartside, Manager Owen Coyle and members of the first team squad  along with some of the Blackburn Rovers team, Phil Neville, Sam  Allydyce, Preston North End manager Phil Brown and other premiership  players. The Mayor of Bolton, Councillor John Byrne and his wife will  also be in  attendance.

The auction will include signed items from sporting icons such as: Amir  Khan, Freddie Flintoff, signed football shirts from the likes of John  Terry, Kevin Nolan, Jermaine Defoe, and Nemanja Vidic and tickets for  Wembley Stadium and Bolton Wanderers Chairman’s Suite donated by Phil  Gartside. Many other exclusive auctions items will be 'up for grabs' too!
