It's party time for brave Kirsty Howard
An Alderley Edge restaurant is privileged to be hosting the 17th birthday of Kirsty Howard.
Gusto will be putting on a night to remember for Kirsty who is the face of The Kirsty Club, which aims to build a brighter future for Francis House Children's Hospice in Manchester where she receives care.
Kim Minchim, Brand Development Manager at Gusto, said "It is an absolute honour to be hosting her 17th Birthday as she was given a matter of weeks to live at the age of six and this is still the case. She is a truly inspirational girl who battles her own illness on a daily basis.
"We are hosting a large party/fashion show called Angel Rocks. In previous years her birthday has been called The Angel Ball, but now she has reached 17 it is time to change things and celebrate her coming of age with a big party and fashion show."
Guests are invited to join Kirsty's friends and supporters as they celebrate her 17th birthday with a champagne reception, fashion show, stilt walkers, canapés, DJ and more.
Campaign coordinator Phil Taylor said "Kirsty is always really excited about her birthday parties and looks forward to all the pampering having her hair and nails done and of course like any young lady wearing a new dress and shoes.
"There are a lot of surprises that Kimberley has been sorting out so I am not totally aware of what is in store but I do know that there will be a fashion show which is always a favourite of Kirsty as she loves seeing what the new styles are. And of course the photos and attention that she gets on the night."
The party will be held at Gusto on the evening of Thursday 20th September. Tickets are limited, so reserve your place by calling Gusto on 01625 583993.
