Smooth Radio’s Starlight Supper charity event in February has to date raised over £137,000 for its nominated charities.
The first year of this annual event saw Smooth Radio ask listeners across the UK to hold a Starlight Supper Party with friends on February 27th.
The event was supported by a number of chefs including Gino D’Acampo, Anthony Worrall Thompson and Brian Turner, who donated dinner party recipes and party tips which were available in a free Starlight Supper party pack or to download. Music for the evening and an after dinner quiz were aired on Smooth Radio.
Steve Collins, Smooth Radio Brand Director said; “This has been an incredible event and one that will be annual moving forward. £137,000 raised to date is simply incredible. Not in our wildest dreams would we have thought we’d be looking at breaking the £140,000 barrier for year one of the event, but this total far outstrips our expectation. The generosity of our listeners is only matched, apparently, by their willingness to have a great time and we all thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
“We have set the date and started planning for The Smooth Radio Starlight Supper 2011 and promise it will be even more exciting and fun than this year.”
