Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine received tonight the first annual Award of George "Best" Costacos Cultural and Cancer Research Foundation for significant philanthropic activities at the National Historical Museum (an old Parliament building) in Athens. At the same ceremony, choreographer Maria Hors was awarded for her contributions to the arts.

The George "Best" Costacos Cultural and Cancer Research Foundation was founded last year to honour the life, work and philanthropic spirit of the late Broadway singer and actor George "Best" Costacos, who died at the age of 43 from a brain tumour. Besides his artistic accomplishments, the late George Costacos is remembered for his support to young artists and researchers in the field of cancer.

This year, the George "Best" Costacos Cultural and Cancer Research Foundation Award was given for the first time, and the Foundation intents to make this a traditional event which will honour distinguished individuals in the arts, science and philanthropy.

This outstanding ceremony in Athens was very well attended by representatives of Greek public and cultural life, and many of George Costacos friends and admirers from Greece and United States of America.
