Gala Dinner 2011

On 6 October 2011 over 170 professionals from the Dutch financial alternatives community came together to show their support for the fund raising initiative of the Alternatives 4 Children foundation. During our first charity gala we raised more than €80.000,- for better education of children in Timbuktu and Bangalore.

This support will enabled Alternatives 4 Children to contribute to the running costs of two small projects, the Edelweiss school in a slum in Bangalore, India and the Scarab school in a small village outside Timbuktu, Mali. The 118 children who attend these two schools were able – due to the support of the Dutch financial alternatives community – to continue their education for a longer period.

We thank all our supporters and their guests who helped us raise more than 80 000 Euro. The auction, sponsored by Cartier and the lottery sponsored by Valentino raised more than 15 000 Euro!

“The support of the Alternatives Community enables us to drastically affect the lives of 118 children in need by improving their living conditions and helping them in getting access to education. They would not have received this help in life otherwise. This is a clear signal that social responsibility and aiding others in need is a priority for many in the investment community”
