Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice is wholeheartedly grateful to Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Stella del Carmen, Maria Bravo, Sandra García - Sanjuán, the trustees of the Foundation Tears and Favors, Vega Factory, Hotel Villapadierna….for all the support and affection given to Cudeca, at the spectacular gala Starlite, held on Saturday 7th August in Marbella.
The aim of the gala, held in true Hollywood style, was to raise funds for the following three foundations: Eva's Heroes (Eva Longoria); “Fundación Lagrimas y Favores” Tears and Favours (Antonio Banderas); and “Niños en Alegria” Joy to Children (Sandra García Sanjuán).
“Since I’ve been in Marbella, you won’t have seen me at many parties, but I’ve attended this one as it is so important to me”, said Antonio as president of the Foundation Lagrimas y Favores, whose main objectives are to support the local culture and education via the University of Málaga (UMA) and also to help the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice that provides Palliative Care patients suffering from advanced cancer.
