On October 31 2014 the team at Luciano Espresso Bar lost a close friend and family member to an asthma attack. May Alsayyad was a bubbly, cheerful and loud 25 year old with a real ‘try anything once’ attitude. While she had a love for fashion, her real passion was the hospitality industry, food and coffee. 

To mark the two year anniversary of her tragically early passing, her sister Nada and the crew at Luciano’s will be holding a themed mufti day to raise funds and awareness for the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ. The team at Luciano’s believe it is important that everyone is aware of how serious asthma can be and the growing concern that it has become for New Zealand. 

The theme will be Disney in honour of May’s love of Disney movies and characters.

Date: Friday 28 October 
Venue: Luciano Espresso Bar
76 Moorhouse Avenue, Christchurch
Time: 7am-4.30pm
