The Scottish Phoenix Honda Record Rocks will be hitting the boards tonight, but not on their usual home court at the Braehead Arena.
In support of the national charity the professional basketball players will take to the catwalk as part of the Sense Scotland St. Valentine Charity Fashion Show.
One of Glasgow's most sophisticated nights out, has found a new home at Oran Mor, the city's stylish, new west end venue. The Scottish Rocks players and official dance squad "The Rockettes" will join their game day commentator and Radio Clyde DJ Adrian Coll one of the evening's hosts. Guests can expect an evening of great food, glamour and entertainment as models show off the latest fashions in Oran Mor's auditorium.
Sense Scotland supports children and adults who face challenges because of deafblindness, sensory impairment, learning or physical disability. "Our Charity Fashion Show is always a great night out and holding it in Oran Mor for the first time, will give the event a real party feeling." said Gillian Morbey, Chief Executive of Sense Scotland, "All the money raised will support our 2005 holiday programme for children and young adults."
Celebrity models for the evening, Adrian Henning, Donald Cole, Philip Perre and Roni Gordon will take part in the event ahead of the first of two home games this week at the Braehead Arena. Roni Gordon of the Rocks commented, "This is the second time Philip and I will have taken part in the Sense Scotland Fashion show. It's a great cause and it was a good laugh last time. It's nice to do something different and I know a few of my team mates are looking forward to meeting some of the real models!"
