Commemoration of the 30th anniversary
On Saturday, May 4, the Cystic Fibrosis Association of the Balearics commemorated its 30th anniversary at the Agora Portals School.
It was a very special day, but let the emotive summary video made by Toni Santos tell us, since a picture is worth a thousand words:
FQBalear 2019 Award to Películas Suecas
Taking advantage of the context of the commemoration ceremony of the 30th anniversary, the Cystic Fibrosis Association of the Balearics presented the FQBalear 2019 Award to Peliculas Suecas. Edu Pampin and Carlos Molina went up to receive the award. It is, without a doubt, a well-deserved prize. Peliculas Suecas has been collaborating with the Association and the Foundation for the last 10 years in a totally altruistic way and has always been able to capture the essence of the Swimming Tour around Formentera with its reports, as well as the essence of Respiralia. Big!
You can see the delivery in this video summary of the gala:
