Well, what a night that was! A great time was had, new friends were made and most importantly we were able to raise a whopping €800 towards our fund to help Lighthouse Relief and Dirty Girls Of Lesvos Island!
A big thank you goes out to all those who made their way down to Maravillas Club last Friday for our big Summer Party, check out our pictures and tag your friends to let them know! The snaps were taken by our friend Amer Farah, who was busy all night photographing our antics. Another heartfelt thanks goes to the crew at Slow Mex Madrid Restaurante, who crafted scrumptious Mexican snacks for the revellers. Their food was so delicious that they’re already had visitors from the party at the restaurant this week!
A shout out is in order for Maravillas Club for putting us up in their great venue and to Ben Roberts, who displayed his photographs that included first-hand documentation about the great work being done by Lighthouse Relief and Dirty Girls on the ground – all presented by his friend Phillip Wozny. Last but not least, we have to thank the DJs who kept our hips limber and our party mood going all night long: thanks Guacamayo Tropical and Joe Painter!
The generosity of our guests means that we are close to reaching our target for donations, we only have €500 to go. If you feel like donating a couple of euros, check out our link here (http://tinyurl.com/mfrdrive). Apart from Madrid For Refugees being eternally grateful, you will most importantly be helping people and organisations who are fighting to make the lives of refugees better, who are arriving in deadly conditions on the shores of Lesvos, Greece.
Once again, thank you all for taking part and we look forward to seeing you at the next Madrid For Refugees party!
