Last Thursday, October 22nd, 2015, the presentation event of the Foundation was hold in the gardens of the House, now transformed into a House-museum, of Mrs. Nuria Pla, and also today’s headquarters of the Foundation. This event took place under a large marquee in a relaxed atmosphere. During the presentation ceremony, the Foundation also took the opportunity to deliver this year’s medical research grant endowed with € 70,000 as well as to inaugurate the first exhibition halls of the Nuria Pla’s Collection. Among the more than one hundred people who attended the event were the highest municipal authorities of Horta-Guinardó, representatives of residents’ associations, representatives of the world of culture and different departments of Barcelona City Council, as well as doctors, journalists and friends and relatives of Mrs. Nuria Pla as well as members, workers and collaborators of the Foundation.
The call was a great success as evidenced by the high turnout in all spaces and halls of the event and subsequent comments that have reached us directly or through social media that were praiseworthy. The presentation was very enjoyable, the speeches were pleasant and the snacks that were served were very well qualified by the attendees.
