RECENT EVENTS - The Winter Whites Gala at the Statoil Masters Tennis

Saturday 8 December 2012 - 8:30 PM

Winter Whites Gala | Royal Albert Hall

TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the star-studded Winter Whites Gala, which will be held on behalf of Prince William's patron charity Centrepoint.

The Winter Whites Gala will see the Royal Albert Hall, a UK charity itself and host of the Statoil Masters Tennis, transformed into an enchanted Winter Wonderland, featuring some of the biggest names in sport and entertainment.

Tennis greats John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker, Ivan Lendl and Chris Evert have all confirmed their attendance. McEnroe will play a match, with Lendl, Borg, Becker and Evert in attendance to lend their support. Goran Ivanisevic and Tim Henman, who featured in one of the most memorable Wimbledon semifinals in 2001, will meet in singles action and world No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic will be presented with a special Centrepoint award by HRH The Duke of Cambridge.

The Winter Whites Gala has been created and will be produced by award-winning Hollywood Screenwriter/Producer, Danielle Alexandra and is presented by Danielle Alexandra Productions in partnership with IMG, the global sports, fashion and media company who own the Statoil Masters Tennis. Together with Centrepoint, they are committed to the support of ending youth homelessness.

VIP ticket-holders to the gala evening will mix with film stars, celebrities and some of the greatest tennis champions of all-time on the white carpet and at a champagne reception, before enjoying an exclusive private dinner in the Gallery, decorated as a magical winter crystal palace. VIP guests will then take their seats in their own private hospitality box to watch a brilliant show featuring a singles tournament match followed by exhibition play. This will be followed by the presentation of the Centrepoint Premier Award for Contribution to the Lives of Youth Across the World to Novak Djokovic.

More information will be announced closer to the time. Learn more at www.winterwhitesgala.com
