Pamela Anderson and Montell Jordan made star appearances at Emirates Palace to help promote the UAE Branch of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.‘I am especially excited to be here to raise money for the Make-a-Wish organization, an organization that I have long admired and I have always enjoyed helping them raise money in the past’, said Pamela Anderson.

Mr. Jordan agreed, ‘It is an honour and a privilege to be involved with the Make-a-Wish Foundation as a musical ambassador for the USA. I am inspired by the children of the UAE and what this foundation represents’.

The festivities didn’t cease there, Montell Jordan and Pamela Anderson also attended Friday night’s Make-a-Wish Foundation celebrity football match which took place on the western grounds of Emirates Palace.
