HOPE Gala Dresden sold out again

HOPE GalaThis is again exciting news: The HOPE Gala in Dresden is sold out again – and many requests for tickets are still coming in. It it once again amazing to know that experiencing a great eve and doing good can go a long way together. HOPE Cape Town is delighted as are also the organizers. Two days before the event, I can sense that strains and expectations are rising – and thousands of little things are still to be fixed, organised and put on track. Arriving in Dresden on Tuesday with Fr Wim and meeting some of the supporters and sponsors personally beforehand it is again thrilling for me to experience the goodwill, the enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile to make the event a success and to give at the same time hope and future to HIV affected and infected children in South Africa.

Meeting Andreas and Katrin Moench – whose wedding in Cape Town was the starting point of the HOPE Gala 2001 in somehow mysterious ways and watching Viola Klein and Michaela Gornickel spearheading every years events is more than just a pleasure – it feels good to see people determined to make a difference year after year. HOPE Cape Town is grateful to all involved by supporting, organizing and attending this years HOPE Gala Dresden – the 9th Gala in Dresden. Thanks from the bottom of my heart and in the name of all who benefit from the solidarity of all involved.

HOPE Gala 2013

Yes, time is flying and the HOPE Gala in Dresden is fast approaching. On Saturday, 26th of October 2013 the 8th HOPE Gala takes place again and Viola Klein as well as the PAR X Team under the umbrella of the HOPE Kapstadt Stiftung, the twin of the HOPE Cape Town Trust in Germany administrated together with the German AIDS Foundation are in full swing again. Not to forget Saxonia Systems, the company in Dresden which is headed by Viola Klein and Andreas Moench, who initiated the Gala and is since then a great supporter of HOPE Cape Town Association & Trust.
It’s a great opportunity to visit the city of Dresden and to see for yourself how beautiful and magnificent the city has developed its old heritage. So it is not only for German-speaking people but also for those from South Africa or elsewhere in the world, who always wanted to experience Germany as it’s best.

More info for the German-speaking people under http://www.hopegala.de. For those more fluent in English please contact Kerstin Behlau (admin@hopecapetown.com). And yes, we also have a travel agent giving advice how to get the best and cost saving flights to Dresden at that time of the year.
