28 Mar Jurek Owsiak Received Honorary Membership of Our Club
Dear Members & Friends,
On the 28th of March it was my honor to meet with Jurek Owsiak, the Founder and President of WOŚP (Great Christmas Charity Orchestra), and recognise him with the honorary membership of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta. Jurek Owsiak is our long time friend. He is a Polish journalist and social campaigner.In 1993, Owsiak founded the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, one of the largest non-governmental, non-profit, charity organizations in Poland. Owsiak is the main initiator and promoter for the Orchestras Grand Finale, an annual worldwide festival involving music and other components intended to raise money for the medical care of children suffering from urological and kidney diseases. He is also the creator of Przystanek Woodstock (simply: the “Woodstock Festival”), a large rock music festival that takes place in Kostrzyn, to thank all the volunteers and supporters who take part in the Grand Finale each year.
Every year, millions of Poles donate to the Foundation and throughout 24 Grand Finales, the Foundation collected over $130 million for cardiac-surgery, neonatology, paediatric oncology, kidneydiseases, congenital disorders, newborns and children under 5 years of age who have been victims of accidents.
During the meeting Jurek Owsiak recieved a special limited edition Bali WOŚP t-shirt along with our club’s offical pin.
