01 JANUARY 2019 / New Year’s Eve at the SNFCC!

On New Year’s Eve, a rich program of events awaited visitors to the Christmas World of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), free of charge, with the exclusive support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

The night started with a live broadcast of the traditional Berliner Philharmoniker’s New Year’s Eve concert and continued with a unique live performance by Mario Biondi at the Stavros Niarchos Hall. Just before midnight, the action kicked off at the Agora, with lots of music, ice-skating and holiday treats. Few minutes before the New Year’s countdown, SNF’s Co-President, Mr. Dracopoulos, and SNFCC’s representatives gave a welcome speech to SNFCC’s guests that were followed by a spectacular fireworks show to welcome 2019.

Four minutes into the New Year, began the SNF RUN: 2019 FIRST RUN. At the same time, a big party started, with Huey Morgan, frontman of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, kicking off a blasting DJ set.

The first race of the year was made possible under the supervision of the NGO Regeneration & Progress, with the exclusive support of the SNF. This year’s race invited the runners to join forces with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to transform their participation into a New Year’s gift for children most in need, through three non-governmental organizations: Amimoni, ELEPAP, and Floga.
