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.
Highlights: New Year's Eve at the SNFCC
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. Live commentary provided by journalist Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
