Fans of Gerard Butler, star of hit film The Phantom of the Opera, will be attending the GerardButler.Net convention in Glasgow on Saturday 21 January at 2pm at the Ramada Hotel, Ingram Street, Glasgow. CLIC Sargent patron, Gerard Butler, has invited guests attending the convention to support the charity via raffle and various other prize-giving opportunities.
More than 170 GerardButler.Net fans from as far afield as the United States, Australia and Europe will be attending this one-off event at the Glasgow’s Ramada Hotel.
Fans will enjoy a special screening of their hero’s film, The Phantom of the Opera, followed by a disco/buffet. A raffle in aid of CLIC Sargent will be held during the evening, and proceeds from the sale of specially printed T-shirts will also be presented to the charity.
Gerard Butler, who also appeared in Tomb Raider 2, The Cradle of Life and Tomorrow Never Dies, is currently filming a new movie in Canada, and was recently nominated as one of the 10 sexiest men in Scotland.
“Gerard’s fans have already raised nearly £5,000 for the charity and we are all very much looking forward to the evening,” says Morag McIntosh, Regional Fundraising Manager for CLIC Sargent.
