Sir Elton John threw a star-studded gala to raise money for his AIDS Foundations earlier this week – although the Rocket Man himself was unable to attend.

Sir Elton’s partner David Furnish had to take over the hosting duties at the Grey Goose Character and Cocktails party in London on Wednesday night, with proceeds going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

A host of celebs turned up for the glitzy bash, including Little Britain’s David Walliams, model Eva Herzigova, singer Lily Allen, Giles Deacon and Jenson Button.

“I’m having a great night,” said Furnish. “I can’t thank everyone enough for being so generous. After 15 years, I still get nervous before hosting an event like this but then I think of why we’re doing it in the first place and tell myself to get on with it.”

The evening – which included an auction – raised over £350,000 (US$567,000) for the charity.
