A TRIO of American stars will perform in the region for one night only, when they entertain guests at a popular North East fundraiser.

On Friday 1 May, Hardwick Hall Hotel, at Sedgefield, County Durham, will once again play host to the Lobster Charity Ball, sponsored by the Great Annual Savings Group.

And organisers have revealed that singers CeCe Peniston, Crystal Waters and Julie McKnight will take to the stage to entertain the crowd with their much-loved hits.

CeCe Peniston rose to fame with her debut single Finally and enjoyed huge chart success with the release of four studio albums, while award-winning singer and songwriter Crystal Waters is best known for her singles Gypsy Woman, 100% Pure Love and Destination Calabria.

Also joining them is LA-based singer Julie McKnight, who has performed around the world and collaborated with stars including Earth, Wind and Fire and The Emotions.

UK talent will also take centre stage, with the event welcoming the Paul Pashley band for the very first time to play a wide range of jazz, swing and modern covers, and the return of The Sally Army Band, featuring a full brass section.

Guests will be greeted with a welcome drink and canapés on arrival and enjoy a four course gourmet lobster surf and turf menu created by the award-winning chefs at the Rib Room Steakhouse and Grill, with complimentary beer, lager and wine all night.

The event, which takes place from 7pm to 12:30am, raises money for Daisy Chain, which supports families affected by autism, and is compered by Steve Walls.

Hardwick Hall Hotel is part of the Ramside Estates portfolio and owner, John Adamson, believes the evening will be one to remember.

“The Lobster Charity Ball is one of the highlights of our calendar and this year’s event is already shaping up to be a fantastic night out,” said John.

“We are hoping to follow the success of previous years by raising a huge sum for Daisy Chain, which will help them continue the excellent work they carry out to support families in need.

“We’re delighted to welcome three incredible singers to the stage, alongside two great bands, and their feel-good music is a perfect way to get our guests in the party spirit.”
