ONE of the Costa Blanca’s biggest entertainment venues is holding an unprecedented charity night in support of abandoned dogs.
Benidorm Palace will hold the Save My Life 3 event on September 29 featuring an array of local talent.
The show will have everything from George Michael tributes to aerial silk demonstrations, and include a seated meal in the iconic auditorium.
“I’ve worked a lot with the BBC over here – we’ve even had Pudsey Bear from Children in Need shows on stage,” Christine Climent, who has co-owned Benidorm Palace since 1990, told the Olive Press.
“But I started to wonder why I was doing this for money that would leave Spain, when there’s so much charity work here to do.
“Animals have always been close to my heart – I’m a farmer’s daughter from Cheshire – so we hit on this idea.”
Christine said the last two editions of Save My Life raised over €25,000.
But this time the team at Benidorm Palace want to raise ‘even more’ for the Benidorm Dog Homing group.
The volunteer group assists the Benidorm Dog Shelter with dog walks and urgent medical treatment, aiming to get every rescued dog a home somewhere in Europe.
“Otis had leishmaniasis, and needed three major operations in just two weeks,” Dona Sandland, whose been with Benidorm Dog Homing for five years, said.
“He needed his stomach sewed up, and his testicles had gone under his ribs.
“We use the money to take sick dogs the shelter doesn’t have the funds or resources for – like Otis”
The €10 door price will go towards the price, with an optional €8 extra buying concert goes a meal of fish and chips or chicken and chips.
