Gala Dinner 2012

On 3 October 2012 over 160 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 the Alternatives 4 Children Charity Gala. Due to the generous donations during the gala, the foundation raised more than EUR100.000,- to support the causes which the charity has chosen.

The money raised enables us to fulfill our prime objective: providing an alternative for children in need. The charity projects we have chosen to support are:

  • The Edelweiss school in Bangalore, India (
  • The Scarab school in Mali
  • Tiny Miracles in India (
  • Day For Change in The Netherlands (
  • Kamitei in Tanzania (

“After concluding our second gala dinner I think we can say two things: first, we have successfully built a franchise that is the event of the year to attend in the Netherlands for the Alternative Investment Community and secondly we can show that the same community is able to give back to society in a positive way. I am so much looking forward to next year’s event!”
