Patrice Evra, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Anders Lindegaard all spoke to MUTV about the significance of the event, before joining their team-mates in the stadium's Manchester Suite to help raise money for disadvantaged children around the globe.
Evra said: "The new players at the club and the young lads have to understand this isn't just a normal dinner. It's important. It's important for the children and for many people. I think UNICEF is just the best partnership for helping people around the world."
