'An Evening of Twinkling Stars' charity dinner was held at HU1 Riverside with support from Michelin star chef, James Mackenzie.
The evening, raising money for the charity Smile Foundation, was held on Thursday 16 February with a number of guests including high profile industry experts.
James Mackenzie, owner of The Pipe and Glass, worked with Hull College students throughout the day and evening, creating a delicious menu of dishes which proved very popular with the guests.
Course Leader, Ian Sneddon said; 'Events like this demonstrate to our learners that it doesn’t matter where you start in life everyone has the same opportunities to succeed with a little hard work and dedication.'
Overall, the event raised over £500 and is just one of many events planned over 2017 to celebrate City of Culture.
