The guests of this gala finally participated to a lottery which first price was a trip to Morocco. The money raised thanks to the donors, especially thanks to M. Hashim Shawwwa, President of Bank of Palesine and M. Talal Nasserdine, Vice-President of Birzeit pharmaceutical group, reach around 15 000 euros.
