The 32nd Grand Finale - we are ready to go!

2024-01-26 15:50:00


Months of preparation, thousands of events around the world and hundreds of thousands of people involved. The 32nd Finale of GOCC is just around the corner! In Warsaw, the Orchestra's heart will be beating the loudest at PGE Narodowy meadows. It is here that Jurek Owsiak summed up preparations for the next edition of the fundraising.

 

We play with everyone and for everyone!

1685 Collection Centres and 120,000 volunteers – all fully ready for the 32nd Grand Finale! Our goal this year is “Post-pandemic lungs”. We will focus on pulmonology units across Poland. The fundraising once again unites communities not only in Poland, but also around the world, thanks to 100 international Collection Centres operating in Croatia, Australia, Thailand, Luxembourg, Canada, the Czech Republic, Singapore, Egypt and even at both the poles! Each of the Collection Centres has many amazing stories and creative ideas for fundraising activities including – concerts, happenings, sporting events and much, much more. 

 

What can we expect from this edition of the Grand Finale? First and foremost, a spirit of unity, because – as we have emphasised many times – we want to play with everyone and for everyone. After a few year break, the uniformed services, government representatives and public media are with us again!

For the 32nd time, we will be together. Not only in Poland, but all over the world. All to help Polish medicine, to help those people who need good medical equipment. We’ve decided that this time we want to take care of our lungs after the pandemic. This is a big problem not only for us –- here in Poland, but also for the whole world. All those places where there was a pandemic. Our lungs were strained, put to a huge test, and not everyone was lucky enough to pass this test. 
- Jurek Owsiak, chairman of the board of the GOCC Foundation

 

At the very beginning of the press conference today, the fundraising account already contained  PLN 36 474 399 –- it is worth noting that we ended our 16th GOCC Grand Finale with a similar amount. Such a result is due to the enormous generosity of our supporters and thanks to the possibility of electronic donation channels which were launched at the beginning of December.

 

In Warsaw we are playing at PGE Narodowy meadows

The 32nd Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity also means a new location for the main studio and the concert in our capital - the heart of the Orchestra's activities beats at the PGE Narodowy meadows. It is a place with comfortable access by public transport, but also offering the possibility of accumulating all the attractions in one place. In addition to the studio and the concert stage, a zone with the attractions of our partners has been created on the meadows, and it is also here that the 18th edition of  “Get Even with Diabetes Run” will start and end, as well as where the Light to the Sky will take place.

 

We are with you in a slightly different format, but we have always been with you. 16,000 police officers look after the safety of citizens and volunteers. We are present at every GOCC Collection Centre. We participate and monitor the actions around the Grand Finale. We make sure that you see what the police look like, how we want the police to be perceived by society. We want to be close to you and for you to see that the police are with you. This is your police force, which wants to keep you and your loved ones safe

– Inspector Marek Boroń, Police Chief Officer
