25 Years of Helping: The Santander Foundation Gala
On 9 June 2022, the Santander Bank Polska Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary at the Scena Relax theatre in Warsaw. View a video report from the celebration.
There was a cake, speeches, performances, memories and, above all, wonderful guests and unforgettable emotions. The Foundation was honoured by the presence of members of the bank’s Management Board and the Foundation Council.
Also present at the ceremony were representatives of organisations cooperating with the Foundation: scholarship recipients, volunteers and ambassadors, representatives of local governments, universities and other educational institutions, as well as representatives of hospitals supported by the foundation during the We Will Double Your Impact and the Power to Help campaigns.
It was a perfect opportunity to thank everyone who works with the Foundation. Special wishes, straight from the big screen, were expressed, among others, by Dorota Wellman and Marta Klepka, Janek Mela, Anna Dymna and the Mayor of the City of Gniezno.
During the ceremony, the beneficiaries of the Foundation’s scholarships, Antonina Waliszewska (pianist), Natalia Skonieczna (harpist) and Krzysztof Polnik (accordionist) gave a fantastic performance. The gala also featured a charity quiz, the winners of which selected three organisations to receive donations worth PLN 1,000 each: Ocalenie Foundation, Mali Bracia Ubogich Foundation and Anna Dymna’s Mimo Wszystko Foundation.
The musical highlight of the 25th anniversary celebrations was a concert version of the „Subscription For Happiness” performance with songs by Agnieszka Osiecka performed by Olga Bończyk, Anastazja Simińska, Agata Walczak and Kamil Dominiak accompanied by live music.
