A few days later, on 17 October 2022, begin the online registration of the GOCC Collection Centres and some intensive preparations for the 31st Grand Finale. Follow our websites for updates! 

 

About the 30th Grand Finale

 

Last year we held the anniversary 30th edition of the GOCC Grand Finale. We raised money in aid of paediatric ophthalmology to ensure the highest standard of diagnostics and treatment. 1633 Collection Centres (including 90 International Collection Centres in 29 countries!) and thousands of volunteers joined the initiative, raising money in the traditional, card Collection Boxes and online eCollection Boxes. Together, from the national and international fundraisers, we managed to collect the total of PLN 224,376,706.35, i.e. over PLN 13,5 mln more than a year ago! For the next time, we proved our readiness to offer unconditional help. In 30 years, together, we have raised a fantastic amount of over PLN 1,75 bln and purchased nearly 70 000 medical devices. 

 

30th Grand Finale was the first winter fundraiser dedicated to human's most important sense. Each year several thousands of little patients struggling with eyesight diseases are being admitted to the ophthalmology wards in Poland. The Foundation plans the purchase of specialized equipment for diagnosis and modern surgery devices.
