– On Friday 31 March the annual Charity Night, organised by the JFC Brunssum Charity Committee, was held at the International Conference Center. This was a huge success with many attendees truly embracing the "Venetian Masquerade Ball” theme and donning wonderful costumes.
As a result of huge generosity from sponsors many wonderful prizes were included in the raffle - thank you to all who donated. Guests were able to enjoy superb Italian food, Italian wine, the famous Venetian Aperol Spritzer and many more Venetian delights. The fabulous band "Roundabout” and DJ Andre provide the music that kept people on the dance floor throughout the night until the wonderful evening came to an end at 0130.
Although a wonderful social event that draws us together, Charity Night is dedicated to the serious aim of raising money for very worthy causes. Monies raised from the entrance fee, bar sales and raffle will be divided amongst the following Charities:
Estonian Retired Officers Association, Estonia
Soldiers Association, Latvia
True Patriot Love, Canada
The Royal Star and Garter Homes, UK
Association Nationale Des Feemes De Militaires, France
Aktion Sorgenkind, Germany
Ultimi Association to Promote Legality, Italy
Fisher House Landstuhl, USA
Progeria Family Circle EUROPE, The Netherlands
Association of Injured and Victims of Missions abroad, Poland
The Chair of the JFC Charity Committee, Bibi Thomsen, would like to recognize the dedication and hard work of the members of the Charity Committee and the volunteers that willingly gave their time to help.
