Jurek Owsiak and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation appeal to the Australian Collection Centres to utilize their Grand Finale fundraising resources to support the efforts to help victims of bushfires in Australia.
A success in Munich
The Polish community living in Germany really delivered this time around! The concerts, which took place at the famous BACKSTAGE attracted a huge crowd - almost 2000 people enjoyed the charitable performances and shows. There was something for fans of each type of music: mellow jazz sounds, vibrant and rhythmic pop music, and of course, some good hard-rock. International line-up did not disappoint: there were seven bands from Poland, Germany, the US, Spain, Columbia, and Bulgaria!
The audience was also generous when it came to supporting the fundraiser, and volunteers collected € 16 000, which equals to the sum of 65 000 PLN! It's a great start for the initiative, which will "play" for charity in Munich for many years to come!
