Who? WO?P - Wielka Orkiestra ?wi?tecznej Pomocy (The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity)
What? 21 Great Finale
When? January 12th, 2013 at 7:00 pm
Where? BIBA (110 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn NY)
Why? Our aim is to work in the field of health protection by saving patients’ and especially young patients’ life and supporting their treatment. We pursue this aim by organizing the Great Finale money collections, by purchasing medical equipement for hospitals all over Poland, and by running five nation-wide medical programs and one educationa program. Each year, the Foundation chooses a theme – the aim we want to achieve. So far, we have collected money for:
- Child’s heart surgery;
- Saving children victims of accidents;
- Saving infants’ and youngest children’s life;
- Saving children with kidney problems;
- Saving children with inborn defects;
- Modern diagnostic tools and treatment in neonatology and pediatrics and other aims.
How? Neither snow and frost, drizzle or storm will stop thousands of our volunteers march the streets of Poland to collect donations for a given aim; and for the first time we take on the streets of New York. Additionally, we pursue this aim by organizing the "Great Finale" where with the help of our sponsors we will have great time while collecting funds for this great cause.
During the 21st Finale we will collect funds that will be used toward the purchase of medical equipment for young childrens hospitals as well as senior citizens hopsitals in Poland. This is what makes this Finale so special and unique.
