Hostal Boutique Salinas, Ibiza presents cash donation to APNEEF

March 1st, 2010

apneefIn the first event of its kind on the island, the Hostal Boutique Salinas’ “International Christmas Market” had only one mission – to raise much-needed funds for the Association of Children with Special Needs of Ibiza and Formentera: APNEEF.

The total of 781.05 euros donated was raised at the Market’s raffle, which included a multitude of prizes donated by businesses and individuals from the island.

APNEEF president, Carmen Boned, when presented with the cheque at the Plataforma Sociosanitaria on Friday 26th February, acknowledged the “hard work and effort” made by the hotel’s owners, Anita Dey, Dusi Wolfmeir and David Phillips. Thanks were also given to the event’s principal collaborator, Judith Bermudez.

Funds raised, according to Boned, will go towards the purchase of various essential materials for the special needs children within the association. “We never thought we would receive such a large sum,” said Boned, “This is a fortune for us!”

Anita Dey, who represented the Hostal Boutique Salinas on the day of the handover, explained that they were delighted to support APNEEF as it was “a local cause for local children”. She reiterated the intention to repeat the fundraising for APNEEF in the next ‘International Christmas Market’.

Carlisle football club help special needs kids in Ibiza

January 28th, 2009

apneefWhen Stephen Dunn of Carlisle United asked Cathal Smyth (aka Chas Smash of Madness) how much it would cost to record a greeting to their fans he replied “Please, no money. I’d prefer ideas on how to collaborate with the Association for Children with Special Needs in Ibiza and Formentera.”

Carlisle United run out to “One Step Beyond” so in return they decided to collect toys for APNEEF.

Yesterday the kids unwrapped 30 (THIRTY) kilos of toys, games, movies, football tops etc and their president Carmen Bond also received a cheque for 4000 euros from the Butterfly Ball…

Photos from last night’s Butterfly Ball

October 9th, 2008

We had a great time down at the 3rd Butterfly Ball at Es Vive last night. The food was great, the atmosphere was lively and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Keith Holden put on his “porno king” alter-ego as the auctioneer and was hilarious. Halfway through it did rain so we all went inside the poolside bar. Keith stood on the bar to conduct the auction but managed to smash one of the lights in the process – the bar staff were not amused but Jason (the owner) didn’t mind. The rain only lasted about 15 minutes or so and then it was back outside for the rest of the auction.

Prior to the main auction Chas Smith ex of Madness treated us to an acoustic set including a wonderful 5 minute poem. Our friend Lorna videoed the night so we’re hoping to put that up shortly. Last year raised over 12,000 euros but going by some of the lots we confidently predict that that will be exceeded this year. All the proceeds will go to benefit APNEEF, the island’s local association for children with special needs in Ibiza and Formentera which cares for almost 100 local children of all ages, all with a wide variety of both mental and physical disabilities.

We easily got outbid for the Messi signed Barcelona shirt and the Sid Vicious painting and we did try for the signed Zidane, Ronaldo and Guti shirts. Afterwards we all went to the inside bar which continued on till sometime this morning…
