A Birmingham Press Club event in aid of charity has secured the backing of two major sponsors.
Barclays and Crosby Lend Lease have agreed to support the Club's Night of Decadence at the Mailbox on June 21, in aid of the Get A-Head cancer charity.
Chairman John Lamb said: "The extremely generous involvement of Barclays and Crosby means that the Press Club will be able to offer greater value to guests and raise the maximum amount of money for a very deserving cause."
There will be the opportunity to win a host or prizes, including a star offer from Continental Airlines of two return flight tickets to New York and an item of clothing donated by American singing diva Cher, a supporter of Get A-Head.
A disco will be hosted by Heart Fm Breakfast Show presenter Ed James, a Press Club board member. The board also includes ITV Central's Bob Warman and Llewela Bailey.
The Press Club, the oldest in the world, has among its membership most of the leading media figures in the Midlands and several from the world of entertainment, including Jasper Carrott.
Mr Lamb said: "As the Press Club is supported by Royal Mail, it is particularly fitting that Mailbox is staging the event.
"We hope to attract hundreds of guests for a night to remember. The main focus will be on the lower level of Mailbox alongside the canal."
Restaurants and bars along the canalside, including Penny Blacks and Don Salvo and the Oriental will be taking part, providing food and drink. There will also be a fashion show by Harvey Nichols and other attractions include a Champagne reception; lavish food, including Italian and Chinese cuisine; a Can Can troupe; an auction and raffle; casino and live entertainment.
Get A-Head, supported by personalities including TV doctor Dr Hilary Jones, former CBI director general Sir Digby Jones, Sir Bobby Robson and former National Hunt champion jockey Peter Scudamore, is now in its 14th year of fundraising.
Its aim is to raise money to help diseases of the head and neck via research, education or the purchase of vital equipment.
Get A-Head was founded in 1994 with the help of the late Roy Castle.
