An evening of tennis and entertainment in a spectacular winter wonderland setting to raise money and awareness of youth homelessness will be hosted by Centrepoint in December.

The Winter Whites Gala at the Royal Albert Hall takes place on Saturday 8 December 2012 and is presented by Centrepoint, IMG and Danielle Alexandra Productions.

Tennis master John McEnroe will be showing off the skills that won him seven Grand Slam singles titles, nine Grand Slam men's doubles titles and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title.

He will be joined by a host of celebrities on the night, including film stars and top athletes.

Guests will enter the wintery palace of the Royal Albert Hall on a luxurious white velvet carpet before being treated to the night's star-studded entertainment. VIP guests will be greeted with champagne and canapés before an elegant and exclusive dinner.

Once in a lifetime

An auction will also be held on the night, which includes some once-in-a-lifetime prizes, and there will be an announcement naming honoured recipients of the Premier Award for Contribution to Youth Across the World.

Gala Chair and Centrepoint trustee Danielle Alexandra of Danielle Alexandra Productions said: 'I am honoured to be able to present to you an amazing evening on behalf of Centrepoint, its Patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge and its Board of Trustees. 

'Centrepoint changes lives and by having the opportunity to share in their work, it has changed mine. I feel most privileged to be a part of the fight to end youth homelessness. On this night, you will join us in this quest to make sure that no child, no young person, ever has to experience this terrifying life again, and for that we are most grateful.'

Centrepoint's Chief Executive Seyi Obakin added: 'The Winter Whites Gala promises to be one of the most dazzling and breathtaking events ever held in support of Centrepoint - an unforgettable evening of entertainment and achievement, perfect in the run up to Christmas.'

Ticket prices for the Winter Whites gala start at £20, with VIP tickets from £1,000.
