Charity Dinner Raises €35k for Kids with Cancer


Over 250 guests raised BGN 70,000 (€35,700) for Bulgarian children with cancer at last week’s taxback.com sponsored “Good Hearts for Children’s Lives” gala dinner in Varna.

Taxback.com has been working with Sveta Marina Hospital since late 2008 to help raise funds for the Children’s Oncology and Haematology clinic. The clinic specialises in treating children up to 18 years old with blood and malignant diseases and had been in desperate need of repairs for 14 years.

Last year taxback.com sponsored BGN 16,000 (€8000) worth of construction to the ward as part of a complete renovation of the clinic.

The ward still needed BGN 60,000 for additional life-saving equipment. The gala dinner raised more than enough to purchase this equipment and ensure the children at Sveta Marina receive the best treatment possible.

As well as sponsorship of the event, taxback.com’s staff around the world each personally donated a toy on behalf of the gala guests. Guests were invited to each write a message to the children at Sveta Marina and our staff will be delivering the toys later this week.

The event also included an auction of items donated by guests, sponsors, local artists and designers.

Taxback.com’s Senior Marketing Manager in Bulgaria Olya Antonova thanked everyone for getting involved in supporting such a worth charity initiative:

“We all enjoyed a really unforgettable evening thanks to everyone who took part,” Antonova said. “The children and families of Sveta Marina Hospital are so brave and it is a privilege to be able to help make their lives a bit better. We look forward to continuing our work and relationship with the hospital with more projects in 2009.”
