Save the date: May 12, 2012!
The American Women’s Club of The Hague will sponsor a Hearts & Mind Gala again this year with proceeds going to Lighthouse and Stichting Papageno.
Last year, the AWC Hearts & Minds Gala 2011 - Lighting the Way for Autism was a tremendous success! Thanks to the contribution of dedicated volunteers, generous corporate sponsors, and support from the local and international community, the AWC raised € 50.000 for local autism organizations.
This year, the AWC Hearts & Minds Gala 2012 will again be held at the beautiful Hilton in The Hague on May 12, 2012. Highlights of the evening will include a cocktail reception with canapés, a three-course gourmet meal, surprise special guests, and a dynamic entertainment program featuring the legendary Van Hoytema Band.
There will also be an impressive live auction led by celebrated auctioneer Pieter Gerrit-Binkhorst, from esteemed auction house Onder de Boompjes, who will once again join the musicians onstage.
The children at school are painting canvases in an indigenous theme to be displayed on tables at the Gala.
So please mark your calendars to join us as we celebrate another fabulous evening of fundraising and hope. More information to follow in the upcoming weeks.
ON SALE NOW: Tickets are €95 for AWC Members and their spouses and €125 for non-members. A limited number of reception-only tickets are €10 per person. To reserve your tickets and for more information, please click here.
