We are delighted to announce that Brazil World Cup Winner, Arsenal Invincible and SCU Ambassador Gilberto Silva will be our special guest at our 2015 Gala Dinner at the Emirates Stadium taking place next month on Thursday 19th November.
The Gala Dinner will celebrate our impact so far and look forward to an Olympic year in which we will hold the first-ever Street Child Games.
Gilberto Silva said, “I’m honoured to be heading home to Arsenal to support the work of Street Child United. Their Street Child World Cup is something I will never forget; the children said I AM SOMEBODY and I was deeply moved.
Now I’m a proud Ambassador and in 2016 we will host the Street Child Games in Rio and once again use the power of sport to celebrate the potential of every child, no matter their background, to reach their full potential.”
Gilberto Silva will join special guests including host for the evening Sky Sports presenter David Garrido, and friends of Street Child United for a night of Brazilian themed entertainment and auction prizes including Usain Bolt’s signed trainers.
Tickets are still available and we would love you to join us: Single ticket £150 and a table for 10 £1500.

The coundown to Rio starts here. No child should have to live on the streets.

Street Child United Gala Dinner 2015 Invitation
“I know from personal experience just what power football can have to inspire and change young people’s lives whatever their background or nationality. This is what the Street Child World Cup is all about and I give it my full support.”
“No child should have to live on the streets. I commend the Street Child World Cup for providing a platform for the rights of street children to be heard.”
“It was a privilege to be invited to the launch of the Street Child World Cup at Downing Street. It gives children a voice through football, sales a platform to express their rights and celebrate their abilities – I’m proud to add my support.”
