02 Jul Report from the XXII Gathering
Dear Members and Friends of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta.
First of all, I would like to apologize for this late report, but as most of you know I am already on my annual holiday in Poland and my working energy is focusing mostly on recharging.
Before I start my report from our last (the 22-nd) Gathering, I would like to announce with big pride that we are back into our charity actions. Because of the popularity of the Polish Vodkas WYBOROWA & ZUBROWKA served during our gatherings, PBC donated one bottle of each to the fund raising organized by the Rotary Club Cilandak www.rotaryclubcilandak.com. The skills of the auctioneer ( Mr. Mark Atkins the General Manager of the Kristal Hotel ) helped to rise totally 9 million rupiah ( 3 mln Wyborowa & 6 mln Zubrowka ) during the last two auctions.
Just to remind you, since January 2014 our Club managed to raise directly or indirectly 10mln + 10mln + 22.5mln + 9mln = 51.5mln for the same cause – helping unprivileged children of Indonesia.
I would like to thank all of you who have even in a smallest way taken part in those auctions.
Planning our 22-nd gathering we focused only on our venue, and of course on the food and service. All of it has been perfectly delivered by our host, The Ritz Carlton Kuningan www.http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/Jakarta/
The poolside was fantastic, buffet meal delicious, and service at the highest level.
Thank you once again.
I would like to thank the management for giving our members 25% discount for the ASIA Restaurant and 15% for TEMPUS Night Club.
Planning our 22-nd gathering we forgot that on that date was the 26th anniversary of the first free elections in Poland. On the 4th of June 1989, 45 years after the end of WW2, Poland experienced for the first time the free elections www.en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_legislative_election,_1989
For some of us, especially for the Polish guests, that night had double format to enjoy.
We had two bottles of wine donated for the raffles draw by Society Wines represented by our friend
Sunil and two free meals delivered by Everyday Chef and donated by our member Dan.
63 guests, including the Polish Ambassador to Indonesia, Mr. Tadeusz Szumowski, tried to build up new social and business relationships. Out of this number, 22 people joined our gathering for the first time and I felt at the end, that most of them will join us during our next gathering as well.
Mark your calendar on the 3rd of September for the next gathering. The venue will be announced later.
To summarize, we are very happy that our Club is being recognized by more and more professionals based in Jakarta, and all of them and their friends are very welcome to join us in September.
For those of you who could not make it this time (4th of June), the companies below were present:
With best regards from Poland,
