The evening began with the talented Arabesque dancers performing for the guests on arrival.

Before dinner a special concert by the São Lourenço Singers who performed a repertoire of International Christmas carols, under the direction of Joyce Whitelaw at the piano.

Following the choir concert, the guests were treated to a wonderful five-course dinner prepared by the chefs from Highgate Portugal.

During dinner, live dance music was provided by Portuguese musician João Dionn.

This memorable evening succeeded in raising 5725 euros of which 50% goes to AHDPA and the remaining 50% to Highgate Charitable Foundation. At the dinner tables donations were collected with draw prizes offered by the Hilton Vilamoura and the sale of raffle tickets also raised another 1,345 euros.

Special thanks to the Hilton Vilamoura and to all the guests for their support and generosity, it certainly was “A Night To Remember”.
