The fight against sepsis was the main aim of the 31st Grand Finale fundraiser which ended with over PLN 243 million raised. In less than a year, we have organized two Open Tenders to purchase medical equipment for microbiological laboratories across the country.
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!
Today, the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity summarized the 31st Grand Finale organized all around the world by the GOCC Collection Centres. The final result of the fundraiser summed up to PLN 243,259,389.25 (EUR 52,028,528.98).
We are celebrating the 30th anniversary of registering our Foundation. Can you believe it? The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was registered exactly on 2 March 1993.
