17 November 2006: Last night, one lucky bidder and 11 friends enjoyed an amazing dinner, hosted by Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho and cooked by Gary Rhodes.

Dinner-with-Genius_resizedAfter generously paying a whopping £130,000 to win SHINE’s online auction this summer, last night the winner and his friends met up with Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho – the most successful club manager in the history of English football and the man who brought Premiership silverware back to Stamford Bridge for the first time in 50 years. Together, they enjoyed a gourmet dinner, specially prepared by Michelin-starred chef Gary Rhodes OBE at his top London restaurant, Rhodes Twenty Four.

With ringside seats for the ultimate word in post-match analysis, this was an evening to remember!

All money raised is going directly to support SHINE’s programmes – we are delighted with the amazing result of this unique auction and are extremely grateful to Gary Rhodes, Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson for generously donating their time and talent.
