We have been delighted to play Santa Claus to the sisters of St Dominic, who run a care home for orphaned disabled boys in Broniszewice. We donated a modern, fully insured van to the care home.
We are racing for a higher cause!
This year, for the third time, the GOCC Foundation along with 9 other charity organisations took part in the Westminister Charity Race held at the Służewiec Track in Warsaw, galloping for a higher cause.
The charity race was on the main events on the Westminister Day's programme planned for 3 September 2022. Each foundation invited to the event drew lots for its horse, and the jockeys wore colours of the particular organisation. And even though during the very race emotions were running high, and the podium was of its standard 3-stands size, the paddock was filled with an atmosphere of friendship, mutual support and unity. Here, everyone is the winner. For we were racing for a higher good!
The prize pool was distributed among 10 foundations in a form of a donation to support their statutory activities.
The employees of the GOCC Foundation drew lots for the horse named Inulla. The winner of this year's Westminister Chairty Race was Gone Hill with Konrad Mazur on its back, who run for the Empowering Children Foundation [Fundacja Dajemy Dzieciom Siłę].
We are beyond happy to be part of this amazing project held by Westminister Polska! Congratulations to all the foundations who took part in the initiative.
See the light - this is the very telling motto of our winter fundraising initiative. We will raise money to buy equipment for children's ophthalmology. Next year we will buy medical devices to save children's eyesight!
Thank you to all the volunteers and each individual for playing along with us for children's ophthalmology, which is the target of this year's collection. As always, we ask you - take care of yourself. Your safety is the most important thing for us!
