eventshoch2 – Benefit Evening in the Alte Oper Frankfurt
Lange Uhren GmbH, Glashütte, Germany
Having done it once in 2007, the Frankfurt banker Peter Haid now for the second time invited people to attend a benefit evening in the Alte Oper Frankfurt on 1st November 2011. Ninety prestigious guests from the worlds of politics and industry came to experience the familiar and popular procedure – culinary delicacies to delight the palate, an appearance by a top-flight guest speaker – this time the Director of the Deutsche Bank, Josef Ackermann – and the subsequent presentation of the individual donation projects.
It was a successful evening in pleasant company for all participants and, in the end, 92,000 Euro were donated to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung campaign “F.A.Z.-Leser helfen”. One half of this will be donated to the Medical Children's Protection Department of the Frankfurt University Hospital, and the other half to cancer patients in Ethiopia.
The Lange Uhren GmbH contributed financially to this benefit event and also presented select watches from the Glashütte watch factory to the invited guests. Under the admiring eyes of the guests, an engraver decorated individual parts of the watch in an elaborate manner. The curious participants were therefore able to see close-up just how these high-quality unique products are created by hand with highly detailed work.
Our event agency eventshoch2 was responsible at this event for advance location scouting, the complete logistics, as well as security and exact decoration of the valuable watches according to the A. Lange & Söhne corporate design.
