Titled the Glowmorous Dinner, the charity event will take place on Friday, June 21, at 9pm at the Ayia Napa Marina and aims at financially supporting the Paediatric Oncology Centre of the foundation. The highlight of the event will be a performance by well-known Greek singer Despina Vandi.

With the aim of serving the needs of vulnerable patient groups, it offers over 10,000 specialised diagnostic tests to patients with hematologic malignancies, children with cancer, patients with central nervous system tumours, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer and many other rare types of cancer. In the field of genetics, it specialises in investigating cases of hereditary cancer, as well as other rare genetic diseases.
