THE ANNUAL BALL 2015

The Club Annual Ball took place on 31st January 2015 in the Grand Hotel in Sopot. This year we had a record attendance and thanks to our many generous sponsors and our guests we have raised sufficient funds to keep our charity projects going: the disadvantaged Children’s English lessons and summer and winter camps, our support for No.1 School in Sopot and the projects which we have sponsored with our partner Club Hannover Ballhof from Germany for which we have been able to secure Matching Grants from Rotary International. In addition, we together with the Ladies Club, who have been our staunch allies and supporters for many years, have funded a special medical machine which was urgently needed for the Children’s Hospice in Gdynia which serves the needs of children from all of the Tri-city.

On the 30th January 2015 at a reception and dinner at L’Entre Villes Restaurant in Sopot our Club President Wiki Symanska and Hannover Ballhof President Frank-Peter Oppenborn finally signed the formal partnership agreement for co-operation between our two clubs thus cementing the very successful relationship we have enjoyed together over the past few years.

Agreement

At the ball our Club President also signed a partnership agreement with RC Kalingrad’s President Denis Batalin with Tatiana Chernyaeva and our Monika Koblinska and other Club members looking on. This also formally confirms our co-operation on future projects on which we can work together and gain matching grants from Rotary International
