A Touch of Art, History and Philanthropy
C S Lawrence - HelsienArnold Sultana

Jackie AvellinoRupert Cefai 1An exclusive evening under the summer stars and the opportunity to enjoy and purchase some very fine art, while supporting charitable causes, is what the event being organised by the Friends of St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation and the Lions Club La Valletta is all about.

The location in itself is a very promising start – the art exhibition and auction will be held in St. Anne’s Chapel, on Fort St. Angelo, while the reception will be held in the chapel surroundings, within the fortified walls of this historic location.
