MARIA and the Pink Ladies and Panthers marked World Cancer Day, in Costa Blanca, with a fundraising event last Saturday at Zenia Boulevard celebrating the lives of those who lost the fight to the evil disease. At 3pm a minutes silence was held in honour of those who have passed and a memory board was available for those remembering loved ones to leave a message. The group also gave away cactus plants for a small donation that had been supplied by the Zenia Boulevard management.
There was a full day of live entertainment provided by some of the best entertainers on the Costa Blanca. Stevie Spit (BEM) hosted the day supported by Chris Dyson from Sunshine FM. The artists appearing and donating their time free were Johnny Lea, No Limit, Bee Rumble, Rachel Prescott, Al Joel, The Raquel Pena Flamenco Dance Academy and Nigel Burchill as Elvis closed the show.
The total amount raised was €1269 to be donated to help in the fight against cancer.
