On November 26th, an independent non-profit organisation Europa Donna held its Annual Dinner Gala and Auction at The Corinthia Hotel, Malta.
This year EXANTE through its Communication Director Patrick J O’Brien was assisting the organisation in its efforts to raise funds. The event was attended by many special guests and with auctions prizes which included a Yacht Charter to the rental of Maserati.
Europa Donna was set up to bring about an awareness of breast cancer and the importance of breast care in Malta. It was started by three ladies back in 1987 as the Mastectomy Support Group but was renamed the Breast Care Support Group (BCSG) in 1989 to include anyone affected by breast cancer in any way. In 2004, the group was affiliated with Europa Donna, the European Breast Cancer coalition, which advocates for optimal breast cancer treatment for all women in the European Union. At the moment there are 46 countries affiliated with Europa Donna.
“The hard part was meeting some cancer sufferers face to face, but it was a reminder that through Il-Gardina project we at EXANTE are giving hope and dignity to many in their final days”, said Patrick O’Brien about the event.
