The annual charity ball held by one of the oldest and most significant organisation association doctors and medical professionals of Polish descent in the US.  Established just after the end of II World War, the society aimed to help Polish emigrants - doctors, students of medicine, veterinary specialists to set up practices and thrive in the United States of America. Nowadays, the members of the Polish Medical Society, which is based in Chicago since its official registration in the 1950s, focus on charitable and educational work such as funding scholarships for Polish students of medicine, supporting medical research opportunities and working together with other Polish organizations to promote Polish culture in the United States. 

Jurek Owsiak took this opportunity to state, that this award, is a sign of recognition from medical professionals, who can fully appreciate the scope of work done by the charity. The founder of the Great Orchestra also emphasised the fact that the award is bestowed on those people who join in the Foundation's efforts. The record-breaking fundraiser, which took place on January the 15th, was made possible thanks to the commitment of 1700 Collection Centres. 60 Collection Centres have been organising the fundraiser abroad - traditionally taking the Orchestra's colourful and charitable initiative on tour of the world. With volunteers fundraising in Poland, the US, Indonesia, Japan, Georgi, and across Europe we have been able to raise an impressive  105 570 801,49 PLN. The funds will go towards the purchase of equipment for paediatric and geriatric wards at public hospitals in Poland.
