CCCL’s Fourth Gala Dinner in Dubai
October 19, 2016
After a very successful gala dinner last year, the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) held its fourth gala dinner in Dubai, U.A.E. on Wednesday October 19, 2016 at the Music Hall Dubai. Around 450 guests gathered from Dubai to support the CCCL’s noble cause of treating kids with cancer from all over Lebanon and the region.
Mrs. Nora Joumblatt, CCCL Chair, addressed the attendees in a speech highlighting the significant role the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon is playing within the Arab region and thanked the audience for supporting the CCCL’s noble mission.
The highlight of the evening was the testimony of Mrs. Ranim Youssef sharing her story and that of her son Youssef; who survived his journey at the CCCL and is now cancer-free!
After that, guests enjoyed a special auction of 4 lots done by Christie’s International Auctioneer, Mr. Hugh Edmeades.
The lots were: “La Tristesse Du Roi” Art Piece by Nevine Matar, Fully-beaded party gown by Charbel Zoe, L’Ironique sculpture by Alfred Basbous and a special Hermes Birkin 35.
Guests then enjoyed the amazing performances by the talented artists of the Music Hall Bil Arabi show.
Thanks to all who attended this unforgettable evening and for your constant support to the CCCL.
