Louis and his One Direction bandmate, Liam Payne, were on hand to pose for pics with kids, speak to the crowd, and even get in on an auction, where they bid big bucks on things like a vest and suspenders. Best of all was when Louis won a bidding war that ended in Liam getting his face painted!
In total, Liam and Louis reportedly donated over £5 million.
Liam didn't just get a rainbow splashed across his cheek – he went full-on face paint, transforming into the most magical tiger ever.
Good stuff all around. Though Niall Horan and Harry Styles weren't also at the event (pity, really), they did donate a signed guitar (Nialler) and a shirt (Hazza) to be auctioned off.

Louis wrapped up the night by sharing: "I think every child deserves to have their first dance and prom, so thank you for being with me tonight."
So proud of these guys.
