Football Legends Fundraise for LCTF In Dubai

The Old Firm is one of the most heated rivalries in football. The two Glaswegian clubs – Celtic and Rangers – have for decades been trying to get one over on each other. This event is an amazing chance to rekindle the days when this rivalry was at its greatest, when these greats roll up at the Jebel Ali Golf Resort for the hotel’s hosting of what will no doubt be a fantastic day of entertainment with some of the Old Firm stars of yesteryear on Thursday, November 21.

The day starts off with a golf challenge and ends with a Black Tie Gala Dinner at the Jebel Ali Golf Resort. Tickets for the dinner are Dh600 per head and you can book a table of 10 for Dh6,000.  Included in the price is a three-course dinner with beverages, live entertainment and an auction. All the auction money will go to three different charities – The Tommy Burns Cancer fund, Special Needs School in Dubai and The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation for our fight against Vasculitis.

The Master of Ceremonies for the night will be Rob McCaffrey, while Andy Cameron will be the special guest speaker. There will also be an 11-a-side match featuring the legends on the following Friday, with fans invited to come down and cheer on their heroes, free of charge of course.

Former Celtic defender Derek Whyte, now sporting ambassador with Jebel Ali Resorts, said of the event: “The evening is a great opportunity for fans of the Old Firm, and football supporters in general, to rub shoulders with some of the greats of Celtic and Rangers.

Thank you to Jim Graham, Martin McGinty and Derek Whyte for supporting Lauren’s charity from proceeds of this prestigious event.
