After a very successful gala dinner last year, the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) held its fifth gala dinner in Dubai, U.A.E. on Saturday November 24, 2016 at the Armani Hotel Pavilion, Dubai. Around 550 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: “Love Bird” Art Piece by Manuella Guiragossian, "Cycle" Art Piece by Fernando Cuetera, Special earings by Walid Salamoun and "Darwiche" Art Piece by May Richani.
Guests then enjoyed the amazing performance by the Ambassador of CCCL for 2018 Superstar Ragheb Alama.
Thanks to all who attended this unforgettable evening and for your constant support to the CCCL.
