Grand Finale

Our 30th anniversary!

2023-03-02 17:00:00

30 years have passed! Can you believe it? The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was registered exactly on 2 March 1993. 


The founders of the Foundation are Jerzy Owsiak, Lidia Niedźwiedzka-Owsiak, Bohdan Maruszewski, and Piotr Burczyński (all of them are, up to this point, the members of the board of the Foundation), but also Paweł Januszewicz, Walter Chełstowski, and Beata Bethke.


At first, our charity was just a small group of enthusiasts on a mission. Our team has grown to a few dozens of people now, but some of the first employees are still working in the organization, sharing their passion for spreading the good!  





1st Grand Finale 

The GOCC Foundation was officially established soon after organizing its first public one-day fundraiser, the Grand Finale. However, before we have completed all the procedures it was the Children's Memorial Health Institute who would take care of all the documentation. It was a joint effort for a higher cause!



In 30 Grand Finales, we have raised over PLN 1.5 bln and purchased over 70,000 devices. 

Branches of medicine which we support:

  • paediatric cardiac surgery
  • oncology
  • geriatrics
  • neonatology
  • paediatric orthopaedics and traumatology (trauma surgery)
  • paediatric nephrology
  • paediatric psychiatry
  • paediatrics
  • pulmonology
  • rheumatology
  • ophthalmology
  • laryngology
  • neurology and neurosurgery
  • surgery
  • urology


Thank you for being with us and playing so joyfully with the Most Beautiful Orchestra in the World! Thank you for your continuous support!
