Held this year at the Jam House, the Boys Bash promises to be another fantastic night full of hilarious banter. The evening will see competitive levels soaring throughout the night as legends and lads pit their wits against each other with the superb 'Ultimate Sports Quiz'.

The event will be hosted by Scottish sports pundit Scott Wilson and will be a relaxed evening of socialising, great food and drink followed by a raffle and an auction of some truly unique sporting prizes.

So far Hibernian has ensured that icons Pat Stanton, Alex Cropley, John Fraser, Eric Stevenson, Jimmy O'Rourke and Neil Martin will be attending the bash. While Hearts FC have confirmed that players Henry Smith, Alan McLaren, Jimmy Sandison and Ian Ferguson will be there to support the Foundation.

Frank Cusack is an Ambassador for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation and will be talking on the night. Frank's son Adam contracted an extremely rare form of Haemophilus Influenza and spent eight weeks in the Sick Kids Hospital whilst he and his family were cared for by the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

Frank said, "While the Sick Kids Hospital saved our son's life, it was the Sick Kids Friends Foundation that saved my family."

Maureen Harrison, Chief Executive of SKFF said, "We are delighted to have some big name sport stars showing their support for SKFF and joining us on the night.

"I would encourage people to attend the event as it is not only going to be a fantastic night but it is for a great cause. Events, like this one, are hugely important to help us achieve our fundraising targets year-on-year. Funds raised help us provide state-of the art medical equipment and support services for sick children from the east of Scotland and further afield."

The event will be held at The Jam House on the April, 11 and will commence at 7pm.

Tickets are £45 per head, table of five (£225), table of 10 (£450).
