Manchester United Gala Dinner
Join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the first team at the Manchester United Gala Dinner
Tickets are now on sale for the Manchester United Gala Dinner, to be held at Old Trafford on Monday 25th November 2019 in aid of Manchester United Foundation and Unicef.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Manchester United first team will be in attendance at this special event, which will make a difference to children both worldwide and in the local community.
Offering supporters the rare opportunity to rub shoulders with their footballing heroes, the Gala Dinner includes a live auction with once-in-a-lifetime prizes to be won. There will also be a table raffle to win signed Manchester United memorabilia and live entertainment.
Manchester United manager and Unicef Norway ambassador Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said, “These charities are very close to my heart; I’m honoured to be the goodwill ambassador for Unicef back home in Norway and if we can raise money to bring more coaches and projects to the Foundation then that will mean a lot to the local community.”
Manchester United has had a partnership with Unicef for 20 years, the longest running of its kind between a sport organisation and a global children’s organisation and to date has raised over £4 million, helping to change the lives of millions of children worldwide.
Last year, the United for Unicef Gala Dinner raised £225k for the Children’s Emergency Fund; an unrestricted emergencies fund which in 2018 supported children in humanitarian situations in 32 countries across the world. Funds from the Children’s Emergency Fund were directed to countries, like the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Unicef provided access to essential shelter materials for over 17,000 displaced children as part of an emergency response. In Ukraine, Unicef led emergency repairs in 33 schools, allowing 7,000 children uninterrupted access to education in the wake of conflict which destroyed infrastructure. In Papua New Guinea, after a devastating earthquake, Unicef provided over 11,000 children with access to new and improved water and sanitation facilities in schools which had been damaged.
Manchester United Foundation works in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Greater Manchester to engage young people in positive activities and help them to build better futures.
