Exactly two months after the January fundraiser, Jurek Owsiak officially summed up the 30th Grand Finale. The result of this year's project, dedicated to eye diagnostics and treatment in children, is PLN 224,376,706.35, which gives PLN 13.5 mln more than last year. During the ceremony, the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation symbolically thanked people and institutions whose engagement made the annual fundraiser possible for the past three decades.
We've been together for 30 years, and for 30 years we've done marvellous things, which are ours and civic. As my daughter once said - it was not an algorithm, it was us who did it! We showed people that if we organize, we are capable of making the impossible happen
