On Sunday, November 12, the traditional Goodwill Benefit Concert for the Goodwill Committee – Olga Havlova Foundation (VDV) will take place. In the concert hall of the church of St. Šimon and Judy will perform in the Old Town, and this year the Barocco semper giovane chamber ensemble with leading Czech oboist Vilém Veverka and the boys’ choir Pueri gaudentes will offer an exceptional musical experience. For the twenty-eighth time, the Kocián Šolc Balaštík law office is organizing a benefit concert for VDV. Proceeds from the entrance fee will be used by the foundation for one of the projects chosen by the concertgoers. Unless they decide otherwise, the proceeds of the concert will go to the Senior Project.
“Benefit concerts have been a proven combination of friendly meetings, musical art, and charity for almost thirty years.
We thank our partners and all donors for their long-term support, we appreciate it very much,” says Monika Granja, director of the Goodwill Committee – Olga Havlové Foundation. Concertgoers can look forward to music from the workshops of baroque composers J.S. Bach, A.L. Vivaldi, and G.P. Telemann performed by the chamber ensemble Barocco semper giovane, which will perform with leading Czech oboist Vilém Veverka. In the second half of the concert, the famous boys’ choir Pueri gaudentes will perform.
During the period of cooperation with the Kocián Šolc Balaštík law firm, the foundation was able to distribute more than 25 million crowns from the proceeds of 27 concerts to help those in need. “It is an honor and brings us joy that together with our clients, professional colleagues, friends, and families we can support the activities of VDV through these concerts,” says Helena Navrátilová, tax partner of the Kocián Šolc Balaštík law office.
Funds collected from this year’s concert will be used by the foundation for one of the projects chosen by the concert-goers. Unless they decide otherwise, the proceeds of the concert will go to the Senior Project. As part of it, the foundation cooperates with non-state non-profit organizations that effectively ensure the best possible care for seniors who are largely dependent on charitable assistance for various reasons.
Thanks to all sponsors, partners, and guests who decided to make a financial donation in addition to purchasing a ticket.
