The 9th Portuguese Value Gala, organized by Lusopress, a media organization based in France, will take place next Saturday, 25, at 9:00 p.m., at Teatro das Figuras, in Faro.
"Of the 100 named, there will be ten" Portuguese of Valor "who are scattered around the world, with a professional, personal or associative path of prominence" that will be honored at the ceremony, explains the autarchy.
This is the 9th edition of the event that, after France, Tróia, Viana do Castelo, Azores, Leiria, Chaves / Boticas and Figueira da Foz, arrives in Faro, a city that will host the initiative that aims to value the Portuguese, whether they live outside or inside the country.
For the Mayor of Faro, Rogério Bacalhau, this is an excellent opportunity to "demonstrate how much we esteem the Portuguese diaspora, which shows us how we can succeed in all activities, provided we work hard every day for what we believe in. "
"It is a pleasure for us to welcome some of the most illustrious representatives of our communities and to provide them with a good journey of fellowship and knowledge of the attractions of our county and region," said the mayor.
Already according to the organizer of the initiative, José Gomes de Sá, it is above all to value "the Portuguese who stood out in business, social action and other areas with gain of prestige and notoriety for our country, people which contribute to the aggrandizement of Portugal in the world ".
The gala will be brightened with the performance of the Portuguese João Pedro Pais and the tickets are on sale at a symbolic price, reverting the product of the box office to a social solidarity association of the county.
Also part of this initiative is a program of visits to local companies and to the most emblematic points of the county.
The delegation will be received on Saturday, 25, by the mayor of the Municipal Museum of Faro, at which Rogério Bacalhau will present the main investment opportunities in the county.
