Over 100 people attended a jam-packed cancer research fundraiser for Project AIR at The Address restaurant on rue de Millo last week. The evening included an auction of paintings by Paul Walsh and Carol Bruton and of memorabilia, including a signed hat donated by Formula One champion Nico Rosberg, and a shirt from football player Hugo Lloris, the captain of both Tottenham Hotspur and the French national team. There were also dozens of tombola prizes from spa treatments to Grand Cru champagne.
The “F*Cancer” evening raised an impressive €7,800 for a research project run by Professor Charles-Hugo Marquette through the Fondation UNICE (that supports Nice University research projects) to detect the early onset of lung cancer through blood tests.
“It was a fun night for everyone involved,” says organizer Kashka Kornelak, “I’d like to thank my co-sponsors for all their hard work: in particular Silvia Mischler for her amazing generosity providing the food and beverages at her restaurant The Address; as well as beauty brand owner Daniele de Winter; Stacy Townsend of Exceptional Leader and Eli Brunborg.”
