Classical music and fine dining proved a winning combination at the inaugural event of fundraisers The Pink Ladies.
The Pink Ladies, which was founded earlier this year by a group of friends living in Luxembourg, kicked-off their activities with La Vie en Rose, an evening of live classicaland opera music.
Hosted by Scheiss aux Arquebusiers Restaurant in Belair, the soirée saw charity co-founder Helen Smith perform Edith Piaf's La Vie en Rose as part of a 40-minute classical concert with German singer Marcus Mitschke, an accordion player and violinist.
“We're really happy for a first event. We put a huge amount of pressure on ourselves,” said Helen, adding: “We really pushed the boat out and we sailed, luckily.”
The Pink Ladies was founded by friends Norwegian national Annette Wilson, British national Joanna Hein-Hartmann and French lawyer Christelle Elimort along with Helen to raise funds for cancer charities.
Proceeds from the event will go to local breast cancer charity Europa Donna asbl Luxembourg. The friends plan to organise similar events in future, supporting all cancer-related charities.
