Sharon Osbourne was ecstatic when her charity dinner AN EVENING AT HOME WITH THE OSBOURNES went according to plan and raised money for both the ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION and her own charity.

Thursday night's (07OCT04) meal for the SHARON OSBOURNE COLON CANCER FOUNDATION, was attended by a host of A-list celebrities, including GEORGE LUCAS, Robin Williams, Tori Spelling, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Trey Parker, with music superstar SIR Elton John performing an intimate set.

Speaking that night, Sharon said: "It's been a dream come true. It's been amazing. How could it not - look at the people who are here tonight."

There was also a live auction, during which the Osbourne family paid $16,000 (GBP8,900) for a new puppy, and Lance Bass of 'N Sync wrote a cheque for more than $200,000 (GBP111,100) for a brand new Aston Martin.
