Taverna Charity Night 


Demetrios Livissianis’ ‘Walk for Life’ was given a huge boost on Friday 27th May when his wife Laura organised the sensational Taverna Charity Night.  

The Cyprus Community Club was packed to the rafters, the event being sold out with a waiting list of supporters hoping to be able to attend.

“Laura excelled herself raising over $11,000 towards Walk for Life,” said Trish Foundation Board member Jenny Comanos.  “The evening was a fabulous success and we are extremely grateful to Demetrios, Laura, her good friends Toula Stomo, Mimi Kappos and Irene Calaizis and everyone involved, including of course all the wonderful supporters who attended.”  

Melpo Kaimasidis, President of Chapter Artemis No 5 presented a cheque for $1,000, the donation giving the funds raised a great boost.

Fun, camaraderie, great food prepared by chef Jordan Jordanou and Greek dancing made the evening one to remember for all the supporters who were privileged to enjoy this special night. 

The evening was ably directed by Master of Ceremonies Irene Calaizis and guests were also treated to a professional Greek dancing group in costume, Vasili Aligiannis and his Greek Folk Dancing Group.

“Demetrios and Laura are a true inspiration,” said Foundation Chairman Carol Langsford.  “Walking from Forster to Sydney is such a very long way and Laura has provided significant support of Walk for Life in so capably organising the Taverna Charity Night and raising substantial funds for our research.”  

Sincere gratitude to Demetrios Livissianis, Laura Liganari-Livissianis, her hard-working friends who assisted her, Irene Calaizis, Chapter Artemis No 5, the people who sold tickets for the event, the generous donors of the items and prizes and the wonderful supporters who attended the Taverna Charity Night.
