All donations and proceeds col- lected went towards the refurbishment of four flats at Villa Papa Giovanni in Siġġiewi. This year was the most successful event to date, with €37,440 collect- ed on the evening, bringing the total amount collected over the five events to €153,160. This year the event celebrated the fact that despite the odds and obstacles of the last couple of years, guests could once again come together to enjoy some exceptional food and wine while donat- ing to a worthy cause. Art played a large role throughout the evening. An art exhibition was held, fea- turing art from eight renowned artists: Kenneth Zammit Tabona, Wibke Seif- ert, Rachel Galea, Andrew Borg, Debbie Bonello, Anna Galea, Mary de Piro and Lucille Cramwell. Guests were able to purchase any of the art on display, with artists donat- ing 20% of the sale towards the night's cause. Director Nicola Paris thanked Fr Mar- tin Micallef, Nadine Camilleri Cassano and all the team at id-Dar tal-Providen- za for the work they carry out every day. Big players of the evening were the sponsors, who support the cause, year after year. The main sponsors were namely, PwC, F J Vassallo & Associ- ates, Seifert Systems, Tigne Point, Malta International Airport, VJ Salo- mone, EY, Halmann, APS Bank, Con- cept Stadium, Mc Colloch & Pease, Camilleri Paris Mode, Neofarma, Raico, and Gasan Foundation.
