Money from the Fundraising Event in Baku – raised in excess of 80,000 AZN for United Aid for Azerbaijan.
It was reported in our last newsletter, that the proceeds from the fundraising event held in Baku at The Four Seasons Hotel on 20th October, 2016 raised around 60,000 AZN – in fact the Society received further sponsorship funding and donations!
We are delighted to report that just over 80,000 AZN was raised and that this money will all be donated to United Aid for Azerbaijan for the continuing work at the Shagan and Saray homes for children. Gwen Burchell and her team have also been asked by the Executive to use around 30,000 AZN of these proceeds to go towards an occupational project for the children homed in the Susan Crouch Ward at Mashtaga hospital.
We would like to once again thank all the sponsors of this great event – without your support this donation would not have been possible. With much thanks again as well to Howard Lyn, our Executive Officer in Baku, who put so much hard work and time into selling tickets and getting sponsorship for our event .
I would like to take this opportunity to ask that you continue with your support of the Society so that we can continue our very worthwhile work into 2017.
Please note the Society will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 2nd February 2017.
