Sandro Morelli, owner of Villa Tiberio Restaurant in Marbella, held his annual Fundraising Gala Evening on Sunday 3rd November, after more than 20 years collaborating and supporting Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice raising over 15.000€ during this last edition of the well-known gala.
Guests were received by the Villa Tiberio personnel around 7.30pm at a champagne reception, where charity raffle tickets were being sold by CUDECA volunteers before they were seated for dinner to be served.
The Host and MC for the night, Mr Nathan Dean welcomed guests in his charming and deep voice which delighted everyone present. Performances followed with stars such Frank Skott, Zöe Hughes, Steve Haughay (Stelvis Lacosta), Helena Paul, Gillian Coyle & Carm of ZING and Steve Owen, a team of professional entertainers that donated their time and skills to help raise funds in aid of Cudeca.
After the performances, guests were invited to the garden to enjoy a magnificent spectacle of fireworks to celebrate the British Guy Fawkes night, courtesy of Sandro Morelli.
On behalf of the Cudeca Hospice, Susan Hannam, Vice President and Former Nursing Supervisor, confessed with emotion that: “Sandro´s help is one of the most important assets for our hospice since he brings so many others in his quest to help the ones that need it. Sandro has been helping CUDECA for much more than 20 years, raising more than 150 thousand euros in total during this time. We are very proud and honoured to have him with us. All of you who come along because of Sandro Morelli, thank you very much. We need your help to continue caring for more patients and families at the end of life”.
Special thanks are sent to all artists who performed and to the guests, who were extremely generous during the raffle and the auction, to CUDECA volunteers as the organization helpers, who make the work much easier and improve the quality of the evening, and to the restaurant staff, who feed guests and the rest of the team nicely and smoothly. Also, huge thanks to Sandro Morelli, owner of restaurant Villa Tiberio, for a great evening of solidarity and encouraging fundraising in aid of Cudeca Hospice.
