We are 28 years young! The official paperwork to register the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was filed exactly 28 years ago. The charity was established just two months after the first Grand Finale, which took place on January 3rd. 1993.
Each year, at the very stroke of midnight on the day of the Grand Finale we announce the preliminary result of our fundraiser. The result is an estimate based on reports we receive from local Collection Centres, preliminary results from online auctions and internet fundraisers.
