Following the invitation of Francine Bord, President of IRCAD Friends, and thanks to the generosity of Roland Mack, Europa Park CEO, more than 300 people were present at the IRCAD’s (Research Institute Against Digestive Cancer) charity dinner which was held on Friday, November 4, 2011, at the sumptuous Teatro dell’Arte, in the presence of Professor Jacques Marescaux, President of IRCAD.
The total profit made was 39,391 Euros, and will entirely be used for cancer research.
The evening was set to the beat of Europa Park’s new show, in which dancers, acrobats, jugglers, magicians and singers took turns on stage for over 4 hours. The master chef of the event was Emile Jung, who had put together an original menu, with the collaboration of Europa Park chef Jürgen Steigerwald.
With a profit exceeding 7000 Euros, the charity dinner lottery was a tremendous success. 52 prestigious prizes were to be won, including a plane ticket to Hong Kong kindly offered by Cathay Pacific, free nights in luxurious hotels, free meals in some of the region’s finest restaurants, cruises on the Rhine offered by Croisieurope, iPads offered by the Caisse d’Epargne Alsace and by I-DATECH, suitcases offered by Lufthansa…
The evening’s profit is to be entirely given to the IRCAD’s research departments.
