Yianis Christodoulou Foundation: Charity Gala Dinner Was A Resounding Success

The Yianis Christodoulou Foundation’s charity gala dinner, which was a resounding success, was held on July 8, at the Zeus yacht, in the presence of distinguished guests, who honoured the event.

The event’s main goal was to raise funds for the benefit of children who are students in the 9 special needs public schools of Cyprus. The glamorous gala event was also attended by renowned international personalities from the world of sports and culture, such as Marina Vernicos, celebrated photographer and entrepreneur, David Coulthard, racing driver champion, beloved Cypriot singer Anna Vissi and Christian Moore, son of the renowned actor Roger Moore.

With Gogo Alexandrinou being the event’s Master of Ceremony, the active itinerary included the presentation of the Yianis Christodoulou Foundation, speeches by John Christodoulou, President of Nicosia School Board Nicos Megalemou, President of Parents’ Association of Children with Special Needs Chirstos Avgoustinos, as well as an auction on a series of exclusive items. 

The auctioned items included karting lessons and dinner for two in Monaco with David Coulthard, a weekend stay for two in the presidential suite of the Canary Riverside Plaza Hotel in London, a limited edition photograph by Marina Vernicos, dinner and night out with John Christodoulou and Anna Vissi in Monaco, a signed poster by Roger Moore as James Bond 007, 2 relaxing weekends for 2 including spa access and treatment at Amara Hotel Limassol and Elysium Hotel Paphos, and 2 seats on board a private jet (Citation X) for a weekend round trip from Larnaca to Mykonos valid until August 31. The gala dinner raised €300.000.

The night ended with the much-anticipated concert by the beloved singer Anna Vissi.

It’s worth noting the during the event an additional auction took place, the proceeds of which will be donated towards the children whose families were affected by the recent catastrophic fires in Cyprus in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports. This auction raised €65.000 and included a men’s watch - IWC327010 PILOT’S WATCH ‘The big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Mojave Desert Edition, a private visit to the IWC factory in Germany, a two-day sailing trip on board a Benetau Oceanis 35 at Oristano Sardinia (length 13 meters with 3 bedrooms), and one private visit to David Coulthard Museum in Scotland.
