the 28th Grand Finale of the Grand Orchestra of Christmas Charity
January 11 - January 12Free
The Grand Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOŚP) will have its 28th Grand Finale on the 12th of January. The whole country will fill with volunteers with collection boxes. They will give their smiles as well as characteristic red hearts in exchange for contributions.
28 years with the orchestra
The fundraiser takes place in Poland since 1993. Each year, the organizers pick a specific medical objective they want to support. As a result, thousands of pieces of equipment in hospitals across Poland have a characteristic red heart on. If you see such a piece, you can be sure that the purchase was thanks to the work of the Grand Orchestra of Christmas Charity.
During 27 years of their work, the Orchestra has raised more than 250 000 000 Euro. Thanks to this money, they donated over 61 900 pieces of equipment to hospitals. The endeavor is now global, as the final takes place wherever Polish communities exist.
