Angel di Maria and his Manchester United team-mates were looking sharp as they joined celebrity guests at the 15th annual United for UNICEF Gala Dinner.
The event raised a record £210,000 for the world’s leading children’s organisation, with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Adnan Januzaj in attendance.
Manager Louis van Gaal was also present and made a speech at the glizty event.
Van Gaal said: “It does not surprise me that Manchester United is part of such a significant charity partnership and one that has impacted on the lives of so many children throughout the world.
“Our work with UNICEF is something this club can be very proud of and I was honoured to join the players at tonight’s 15-year anniversary event.”
United captain Rooney added, “Any player who signs for this club soon realises how important UNICEF is to Manchester United.
“I’ve been attending the gala dinner for 10 years now and it’s always a great evening that raises a lot of money for United for UNICEF.
“Like myself, most of the players here tonight have young families so it’s very moving to learn about the UNICEF project in Vietnam and the awful circumstances so many children have to face.
“I’m just glad we could help tonight and am grateful to all the supporters who joined us to make it such a special event.”
