It will be a star-studded occasion this evening when well-known faces from the showbiz world step on to the red carpet for a good cause.

The Winter Wonderland Gala Ball in aid of the Julian Benson CF Foundation takes place tonight in place in the Clayton Hotel, Ballsbridge.

The event, organised by Dancing With The Stars judge Julian, a cystic fibrosis sufferer, is now in its second year.

Duties

Fresh from his voice-over duties on Love Island Australia, Dublin presenter Eoghan McDermott will be host on the evening. Fair City star Johnny Ward and Dancing With The Stars pro Emily Barker are among the 60 performers who will entertain guests.

Julian has been working tirelessly since the charity's inception to raise funds for two projects that will help those living with cystic fibrosis and their families.

Tonight, the foundation will be making an announcement about its first project as it moves closer to delivering an accommodation facility at which parents and loved ones will be able to stay while their loved one is in hospital.
