On January 30th, 2016 BKB Managing Director, Werner Neugebauer, hosted a Charity Dinner for the benefit of the humanitarian initiative BKB Charity.
At the spectacular premises of the traditional former Nordstern coal mine about 70 prominent guests from politics, business, sports and public life – headed up by former Federal Minister and Vice Chancellor Franz Müntefering and his wife, member of the Bundestag, Michelle Müntefering – were delighted by a diversified information and entertainment program. It was their chance to get to know the ambitious aid projects.
Some of the highlights for the palate were the exquisite 4-course-dinner prepared by Philipp Stein, Germany’s youngest star cook, as well as the chocolate candies created before the very eyes of the guests by Sabine Dubenkropp, German Chocolate Master 2015. In the informative part of the event representatives of Flüchtlingszeit e.V. introduced their current book project “Fluchtweg Fünfundzwanzig”, which was written in cooperation with BKB Charity. Gerald Asamoah, who came to Germany as a fugitive eloquently supported this project. The Charity Dinner was moderated by Manuela Strack and Dr. Björn Rodday. Both of them had been to Nepal a short while ago on behalf of BKB Charity to work on a film project about the children of Nepal after the terrible earthquake disaster. Their passionate account of the situation on the spot fascinated the audience above all. An ensemble of the Young Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Berlin under the direction of Aurélien Bello charmed the audience as well as Philadelphia & Band who gave the first performance of her newest song “Children”, which was written and composed especially for BKB Charity and dedicated to the humanitarian initiative BKB Charity.
BKB Charity would like to thank all guests for their generous donations as well as all supporters and performers for their special commitment, which contributed significantly to the success of this wonderful evening.
