Jiří Richter, Executive President of SANANIM received a cheque for CZK 250,000 from Rotary Club Prague international at the recent club meeting. RCPI member Nelly Jenicek together with Jiří Richter explained the work of Sananim and some of the extraordinary successes the charity has achieved in the 25 years of operation.
RCPI club member Naomi Sullivan-Callender co-organised the fundraising gala to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sananim which was not only an outstanding evening of celebration but also raised such a significant sum for the charity. Jiří thanked RCPI and Naomi in particular for her exceptional efforts which made the event possible.
Founded in 1990, SANANIM is now one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the Czech Republic that provides complex services in the area of prevention, treatment and re-socialization of non-alcoholic drug addictions. The 25th Anniversary Gala was supported by many companies and individuals who gave donations and their time to make this event such a success.  
"We have not only increased the awareness of SANANIM and their work but have also have raised a substantial sum for this amazing organisation",  said Naomi Sullivan-Callender, co-chair of the event.  “It was a thrill to experience such a dynamic and exciting event.  It’s an honour to work with our friends at SANANIM to celebrate their great success.  This event would not have been possible without the support of so many individuals and organisations.”
The other stars were all our guests who bid for auction items and pledged donations with great verve and generosity.
