Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel Supports Shooting Stars Benefit

DUBAI, UAE, August 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel is delighted to have been a sponsor of the
Shooting Stars Benefit, hosted by Samuel L Jackson. Taking place over two
days, a host of celebrities from both Hollywood and the UK enjoyed a
two-round competitive golf tournament at the famous Wentworth Club. Teams
were led by actors and professional golfers including James and Oliver
Phelps, Jesse Metcalfe, Jack Wagner, Michael Bolton, Samuel L Jackson, Jamie
Bamber, James Anderson and Colin Montgomerie. The 3 day event started with a
reception and dinner at Aspreys, and rounded off with the Closing Ball at
the Royal Courts of Justice with a red carpet champagne reception, gala
dinner and auction and a live performance by an international artist.

Three colleagues from Jumeirah London
[ ], Ian
Richardson, acting GM Jumeirah Lowndes; Oliver Brown, Director of F&B and
Clive Doble, Director of Sales, were chosen to form the Jumeirah team for
the golfing part of the event, headed up by James Phelps of Harry Potter
fame as their team captain.

For the Closing Ball, Simon Young and Andrew Freeman designed a menu
that stayed true to the essence of the hotel's food and beverage offering,
focusing on the very best of seasonal produce. To start, a tian of plum
tomato and basil with warm mozzarella fritters, the choice of a roast loin
of Southdown lamb with butternut squash puree, Scottish girolles and spring
roll of braised leg or Beetroot tortellini with roasted Mediterranean
vegetables for main followed by Strawberry and Pistachio Fraiser or dark
chocolate "black forest" delice. Andrew Freeman was at the event to ensure
that the high standards of the Jumeirah Carlton Tower
