A successful night aboard the 'Pride of London' boat raised a substantial amount towards the 3rd free dental clinic - Sonrisa III. Once again, Todos Juntos Children's Trust were generously supported by the Gaucho Group who donated all the delicious steak sandwiches and Malbec wine for the evening. 188 people enjoyed the delights of London by night culminating with the opening of Tower Bridge as we sailed underneath. A Latin American band kept people dancing and much fun was had by all. Guest included: The Argentinian Chargé d'Affaires, Osvaldo Marsico, Carolina Perez-Coleman, the Embassy First Secretary and the raffle prizes were handed out by our good supporter Ossie Ardiles.
