Clarion Olomouc was a partner of a charity event called Cancer is a Public Matter. The ceremony under the patronage of Mayor of Olomouc Antonín Staněk was presented by famous actor and host Tomáš Matonoha. The event included a fashion show of Italian brand Primigi, whose models were presented, among others, by children treated for cancer. A guest of the Petra Balvínová fashion show and its main face was Czech Miss 2014 Gabriela Franková who, together with Renáta Grmolenská, the director of the Cancer is a Public Matter Foundation, launched a calendar of STAR Group, the proceeds of which will be used to support the foundation.
The children symbolically presented the amount of CZK 1,850,000 which was collected thanks to partners of the foundation. The event was crowned by a concert by Ilona Csáková and a performace by the Moravian Theatre Olomouc of the classical ballet Sleeping Beauty with Ivo Jambor and Yui Kyotani soloists.
As before, proceeds of the event will support cancer prevention research. Last year the funds were used to launch a project to prevent cervix cancer caused by the HPV virus and to buy the CellSearch Circulating Tumour Cell Test.
