We are in the season where lots of activities and events are going on everywhere. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”; it’s Christmas and New Year time.
There are concerts and fairs almost everyday in every corner of the island. As it’s coming up to Christmas it’s also a time for giving and sharing specially for those who are less fortunate than we are.
As you all know, I like to support different organizations as much as possible and this week I am supporting a very special charity The North Cyprus Cancer Charity Trust (NCCCT). This organization raises money for much needed equipment for Girne Akcicek Hospital especially for the cancer patients receiving treatment there. Only last week they donated many beds for the adult and children’s wards.
The North Cyprus Cancer Charity Trust (NCCCT) has its Christmas Market and Fayre at the Kaya Palazzo Hotel in Karaoğlanoğlu from noon to 4pm on Sunday, December 2.
The 2nd of December is also a very special date because it is the charity’s 30th anniversary and because of this, this year’s Christmas event will be more special and meaningful. There will be interesting events all afternoon including a raffle with some fantastic prizes, a 50/50 draw, entertaining events and face painting for children… all this as well as stalls selling a variety of cakes and pies, handicrafts, toys, food and drink.
Why am I so excited? Well it’s because I will be singing for the guests with Muharrem Cemoglu and Kartal Tunc who will also play violin and guitar. Dj Mike has also prepared a special pot pourri of Christmas carols and Christmas songs to keep everyone entertained.
If you want to support this wonderful charity there is still time to bake a cake or provide a prize or donation for the event. If you want to help call 0533 868 6078 or just come along to the event. Entry is 20TL which includes tea/coffee and cake.
I hope to see you at NCCCT’s Fayre on Sunday so we can raise lots of money for the hospital.
PS: SAVE THE DATE! I will be performing for the benefit of The Karmi Church Fund together with the wonderful mezzo soprano Katie Economidou and amazing accompanist and performer Zara Barkhoudarian once again.
Last year our concert was a great success so we decided to repeat it again this year. Please join us on Sunday 16th December at 16:00 at Karmi Church for joyful Christmas songs and more.
