Aberdeen University Russian Speaking Union and Aberdeen University Wine Society present Wine Against Cancer: A Charity Gala.
We are happy to announce that the Russian Union decided to team up with the Wine Society to host a joint event dedicated towards helping a noble cause — the fight against cancer. Come join us on the 13th of February in Elphinstone Hall and help us help two incredible charities.
Half of the money raised will go to Gift of Life, a UK sister charity of the Russia-based Podari Zhizn («Give Life»), which is a leading childhood cancer support charity that helps more than 2 000 Russian children with cancer every year. They established a UK branch to enable them to buy medicine not available in Russia and send patients to London for treatment they wouldn't be able to get in their home country.
The other half will go to a more specific cause. Amelia Morari is a 7-month old Moldovian girl, who has been diagnosed with Embryonic Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that formed in her head. Amelia requires a prolonged treatment with surgery, which will cost around 70,000 Euros, and with our help, the money we raise will bring her closer to having a cancer-free life.
The tickets for this one will be £10 for members of either society and £15 for non-members and will be sold throughout the coming weeks (times and places of ticket sales will be announced here so stay tuned). The places are limited.
You can look forward to more wine than at usual Wine Society events including an exclusive selection of Moldovian wines normally unavailable in the UK! There will also be mountains of cheese.
To make it feel a bit more special, we'll set the dress code to suit / cocktail dress.
One of the highlights of the night will be a raffle for a 1.5 litre bottle of Moët Champagne! One raffle ticket will be £2 and you'll be able to get 3 tickets for £5.
Live music throughout the event will be provided by crowd favourites Michael James, Tubs Jones, Fraser, and Bryn McLernon!
We are looking forward to seeing you. Let us know if you have any questions.
Let’s make a difference in the lives of those who have to fight to keep them.
