World-famous Greek singer Nana Mouskouri will perform at a glamorous gala entitled “An Unforgettable Evening” that will be held on October 23 in Toronto. The event will launch the cooperation between ELPIDA Children’s Oncology Unit in Greece and Canadian SickKids for Child Cancer hospital.
The gala aims to raise awareness for the content and usefulness of cooperation between ELPIDA and Sickkids, and to encourage support for this important initiative that will contribute positively to pediatric oncology care in Greece and Canada, in saving the lives of children. The event’s proceeds will go towards the vocational education and training of ELPIDA’s Oncology Unit and SickKids hospital, while will help develop mentoring programs.
The initiative for the event started in Canada with the generous support of the Canadian Ambassador to Greece Robert Peck and his wife Maria Pantazis-Peck who have always supported the work of ELPIDA.
Nana Mouskouri expressed her admiration towards Marianna Vardinoyannis and the work for ELPIDA: “From the moment I met Marianna many years ago, I became a great admirer of her work; she is an example for me. She makes us proud everywhere because of the time she puts on, for being such a great mother, because I know very well she is a great mother, one who will fight not just for her own children but for others’ as well.”
