Throughout the evening, guests celebrated and enjoyed flavourful food prepared by the talented Xara Catering team, paired with fine wines from Farsons and Marsovin, live music by Louise EllulBonici Quinet, while donating to such a worthy cause. This year an outstanding amount of €51,530 was collected, contributing to the already existing tally and totalling the amount to the wonderful sum of €197,380, from its first edition in 2017.
