The gala was a tremendous success and not only celebrated Sananim's 25th year but also raised substantial funds for the charity. Over 140 guests attended at the Intercontinental Hotel in Prague and enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by award winning chef Pavel Buchwaldek and danced the night away. Jiří Richter, Executive President of Sananim made a passionate speech thanking the guests for their support and stressing the importance of the work of Sananim. 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. "This event would not have been possible without the support of so many individuals and organisations" said Naomi Sullivan who coordinated the event. "We have not only increased the awareness of SANANIM and their work but have also have raised a substantial sum for the organisation".
An auction of donated prizes was held during the event and raised tens of thousands for the charity. Two etchings by the famous artist Martin Sladky have also been donated and are now available for auction. Click HERE for more details.
The final amount raised by the Gala event will be revealed in a ceremony where a cheque will be presented to Sananim.
