This year the collection has amounted to 6.410'79 euros that were raised thanks to the 28 tables that were distributed throughout the city and the more than 100 piggy banks that were filled with contributions. This year they collaborated the Hermitage of San Juan, Amapatch, Castilian cultural association Manchega Al-Manchara, IES Number 3, Rotary Club Dénia, Association Tdah, Brotherhood of the Blessed Blood, Retirees and Pensioners Home, Local Board Fallera of Dénia, Dénia City Council, Association of Housewives, Aehtma, Matria, Baleària, Mango, ACE, Association against Parkinson's, AFIMA, Federation of Moors and Christians Denia, El Rodat soccer field, AMADEM, MLS Real Estate, Ludai, Basketball Club, Salvation Army, Amics de Dénia and Marina Alta, Condemados al Curb, Casa de Andalucía and the Russian House Association.
The day was completed with music and dancing live in Els Quatre Cantons and performances by local musicians in several of the tables scattered around the streets of Dénia.
Solidarity day in Baleària Port
One of the main novelties this year was the active participation of the Fundació Baleària, which yielded the facilities of the Maritime station to celebrate, throughout the day, a solidarity market, as well as various performances and exhibitions on the stage that was installed there.
