LATEST PICS: Models and Stars at “Breast Cancer Ireland’s Battle of the Stars”
It was a spectacle of glamour on Saturday night as a host of well-known personalities arrived on the pink carpet at Breast Cancer Ireland’s Battle of the Stars lip-syncing and dancing fundraiser proudly supported by Joe Duffy Group at the Intercontinental Hotel in Ballsbridge, Dublin. The glitzy fundraiser was hosted by Elaine Crowley who stepped in for Nicky Byrne to host the event.
Over 350 guests enjoyed the black tie gala evening of fun and entertainment as many of the faces who participated in Strictly Against Breast Cancer over the past three years including 2FM’s Eoghan McDermott, broadcaster Jenny Buckley, solicitor Gerald Kean, ‘Fair City’ actors Jenny Dixon and Dave O Sullivan, comedian Eric Lawlor as well as models Thalia Heffernan and Karena Graham, TV hairstylist, Stephen Kelly and Make-Up Forever’s Annie Gribbin stepped out to strutt their stuff on stage.
Aptly titled ‘Battle of the Stars’ the event also included survivors of breast cancer, some of whom reunited with past partners to perform on the night. New combinations were also created in order to showcase a range of hitherto unseen singing, acting and dancing talents. Staff from event sponsors, Joe Duffy Group danced with Jenny Dixon, who lip-synced to Taylor Swift.
The celebrity judging panel, included presenter Lisa Cannon, singer and actress Samantha Mumba and rugby commentators Brent Pope and Shane Byrne who were on hand to assess the entertainment value and of course the style on the night.
