Alfa Romeo together with Theodora Children's Charity

  • The "Charity Party Theodora", a special event to support the children in-patients at the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori cancer hospital in Milan, was held last Thursday.
  • Alfa Romeo's technical and sporting excellence added greatly to the excitement of this unique charity evening.

The "Theodora Charity Party" fund-raiser was held last Thursday with the participation of the Alfa Romeo brand as Main Sponsor. Hosted at "Garage Italia" and organised by the Theodora Children's Charity in association with Michelin-starred chef Carlo Cracco, the exclusive evening event raised money for the Charity which brings a smile to the faces of hospitalised children with special visits from the "Giggle Doctors".

Founded in Switzerland in 1993 and active in Italy since 1995, the Theodora Children's Charity has more than 200 Giggle Doctors - professional entertainers trained to work on high-complexity paediatric wards - in Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Belarus, Turkey and Hong Kong. In Italy every year the 32 Giggle Doctors bring the magic of fun and laughter to more than 35,000 children hospitalised in 38 paediatric wards. The "Theodora Charity Party" originated to make these special visits at the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori in Milan possible. From Thursday 7 February, the Charity has inaugurated a new programme of visits to the oncology, haematology and transplant wards of Padua Hospital.

For the occasion, the Alfa Romeo brand provided the organisers with the official, autographed race suit of Formula 1 driver Charles Leclerc. What's more, guests at the "Theodora Charity Party" enjoyed a close look at a Giulia Quadrifoglio "NRING", the special limited edition which celebrates the historic bond of supreme success linking Alfa Romeo to the legendary German Nürburgring circuit. So Alfa Romeo's technical and sporting excellence added greatly to the excitement of this special charity evening.
