Swiatlo z Podcieni - charity concert for the hospice
The Museum of Crafts in Krosno decided to celebrate the first anniversary of the opening of the Piwnica PodCieniami Gallery by organizing a charity concert in aid of building Krosno Hospice.
On December 9th the guests gathered in Piwnica, President of Krosno Piotr Przytocki being one of them, had a chance to listen to a one - hour long concert performed by the 'Po 13 - tej' string quartet. At the same time they had an opportunity to support the idea of building the hospice. Every donation certificate was used as an ornamental chain link for a special Christmas tree. The making of the chain had been started by the students taking part in some learning activities that accompanied the exhibition Around the Christmas table - Christmas Eve traditions - one of the first displays presented in the Piwnica PodCieniami Gallery. The chain bearing the names of the students and benefactors will decorate the first Christmas tree in Krosno Hospice.
The proceeds, amounting to 580 PLN, were handed over to the Reverend Marek Zarzyczny - the head of the Krosno Hospice - Charity Association belonging to Caritas.
We encourage you to help us to make this chain of kind hearts longer by making a donation in aid of the building of the hospice.
The Krosno Hospice - Charity Association belonging to Caritas takes action in aid of building a stationary medical institution that would provide palliative care for terminally ill people. The hospice will be established in the building of a former Maternity Ward of the Podkarpacki Province Hospital in Krosno, where at the moment functions a special Caritas Care Unit /Stacja Opieki Caritas/ that provides at - home medical care for terminally ill patients.
