Over $9,000AUD were raised in fundraising concert organised by The Friends of Providence House NSW group in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza. The Australian “Festa ta’ Ġenerożità”, combining fundraising and entertainment, was held at the La Vallette Social Centre in Blacktown on Sunday, 24th February 2019. The final sum raised will be presented to Fr Martin Micallef, Director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza, at the start of the annual Volleyball Marathon which this year will be held on July 5th, 6th and 7th.
Special guests for the afternoon were Lawrence Buhagiar, Consul-General of Malta for NSW, Godfrey Sultana Vice President of La Vallette Social Centre and the group’s major sponsor, George Vella of Breakaway Travel, Blacktown.
This was the third fundraiser of its kind and the La Vallette Committee and volunteers are to be commended and thanked for their part in providing the use of their hall, which looked amazing. Another thank you goes to all the entertainers including the popular MCA Choir, for their professionalism and for offering their services for free. They all kept the capacity crowd entertained for over four hours!

The Voice of the Maltese E-Newsletter and community Radio Stations 2GLF and WOW FM are also acknowledged for their ongoing support.
