The local UNICEF Committee in Javea unveiled the details of the VII Charity Dance Gala to be held this Sunday, 1 July, in the gardens of Moli Blanc nightclub, featuring the students of the Salome Rodriguez Dance Studio.
According to details offered by Rodríguez herself, the first part of the gala will be dedicated to a wonderful choreographic adaptation of the ballet «Swan Lake», while the second part will be dedicated to a concert by the Choral Society of Xàbia, directed by José Mayor, offering a selection of Spanish zarzuela. A prize-draw will also take place with gifts donated by collaborating companies and artists. The show will close with a selection of dances taken from the best-known musicals, such as Cabaret and Moulin Rouge, as well as performances of Spanish dance, contemporary dance and hip hop.
The charity event will start at 8.30pm and the five-euro tickets (donations) can be purchased at the box office of the Club, which has donated its premises free of charge. According to the Chairman of the Javea Committee, Guillermo Bolufer, the funds raised will go towards child survival projects. Bolufer went on to highlight that there are millions of children, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, who die before the age of five from preventable causes. In this regard, the objective of UNICEF for 2012 is to provide treatments to save the lives of one million children under the age of five suffering acute malnutrition in the Sahel.
The Javea UNICEF Committee is one of the oldest in the province and practically the only one in the North of Alicante. Since the beginning of the 1990s it has undertaken fundraising events and activities to raise awareness about the worldDBC##1s inequalities and the problems faced by children without access to education, healthcare or food.
This is why the Javea Town Hall cooperates with this organization, as its link to the United Nations is a guarantee of transparency. In this regard, the Mayor, José Chulvi, has stressed that Javea «has always promoted solidarity and has taken part in cooperation projects», proof of this is the long-standing cooperation agreement with San Felipe (Cape Verde), which finances the renovation of several homes. Chulvi pointed out that the economic crisis in Spain is not comparable to the health and food crisis of other more disadvantaged areas and acknowledged the work of solidarity organisations such as UNICEF Javea who «turn small actions into great help».
