Over 130 people came along to the burlesque charity fundraiser at Pier41 in aid of the Hospiz Zentralschweiz last weekend, raising 12'000 CHF. Organisers Andaleeb Lilley and Stutee Parmar were thrilled with the results of their third fundraiser.
The founders of the hospice, Sibylle Jean-Petit Matile and Hans Peter Stutz attended the event and spoke about the work at the Hospiz and how 250 CHF a day would pay for one patient to receive the care they needed for their end-of-life and last wishes fund.
Following their moving speech, the raffle was held with over 20 prizes being given out to lucky winners. Raffle prizes came from businesses all over Zug and London and the organisers would like to thank all donors as well as sponsors for their support.
The night continued with a show by Zurich burlesque dancer, Kokeshi Momo, who tantalised onlookers with her beautiful outfits and fans, and the party then went on until the early hours of the morning. The annual charity event is becoming a popular date on the Zug calendar. More info here - www.charityeventszug.ch
