Kishin Alwani Award

An event was organised by the President of Mar de Sur, on the evening of Thursday 19th September 2019 at John Mackintosh Hall, to recognize and honour Kishin Alwani for his philanthropic work with the Kishin Alwani Foundation. President Marian, PE Jennifer, PP Penny, PP Jane and Emily attended by invitation.
The Chief Minister Fabian Picardo, Peter Montegriffo QC and the representative of Mar de Sur gave short speeches. Richard Garcia, local historian and author of historic journals, gave an interesting presentation of famous historic philanthropists in Gibraltar. Levi Attias, Barrister, Poet, Mentalist and Magician gave a recital of one of his poems with background music from a Spanish doctor playing guitar. They later sang together which enjoyably concluded the formal part of the evening. Drinks and tapas were served.
Kishin Alwani was awarded honorary membership to Rotary earlier this year for his long service and contribution to the Rotary Club of Gibraltar. He still spearheads the Alwani Group of companies together with the Alwani Trust and the Alwani Foundation.
