"FORWARD" to a complete victory over childhood cancer. On January 13, 2018, celebrities, musicians, philanthropists joined stars of stage and screen at The Savoy, London for a celebration of traditional Old Russian New Year 's Eve for the benefit of Gift of Life, joining their fight to provide life-saving and life-changing care for children across Russia living with cancer. Оver £400 000 had been raised during the evening to support children with special medical needs.
The guest list included longstanding friends of the foundation and new guests: Hibla Gerzmava, Vladimir Spivakov, Chulpan Khamatova Чулпан Хаматова, Ralph Fiennes, Natalia Osipova, Sergey Polunin, Princess Katya Galitzine, Katie Melua, Erik Bulatov, Igor Vernik, Вадим Верник Vadim Vernik, Billy’s Band and many more. The guests and performers were thanked for their continued support: "This miracle is possible thanks only to you, people who are not indifferent," said Chulpan.
One of the centre parts of the programme was a classical performance by Viliam Khailo, a gifted young violinist and Podari Zhizn patient. Viliam is recovering and continues studying music to become a professional violinist. Another former patient of the charity Nikita Merkulov, now a lawyer, got sick ten years ago and luckily received best treatment on time to overcome the life-threatening disease. "We never know who our former patients will be," added Chulpan. And to become someone our little patients really need your help and donations to regain their health with intense medical care first.
A special treat of the evening was a raffle where three lucky winners from generous auction bidders and pledge donors received limited edition lithographs entitled "FORWARD" personally signed by Erik Bulatov. This piece of art became the leitmotif of the evening: “Forward, to the complete victory over childhood cancer”.
Gift of Life send its sincere appreciation to Roman Abramovich, Kaspersky Lab and Raven Russia whose generosity provided all the expenses for hosting the evening. Thank you!
We thank all our partners and volunteers as well without whom we could not manage it. Spasibo! ♥️
