2016 La Lucciola Fundraiser A Big Success

16 October 2015

Bali Peduli annual fundraiser at La Lucciola has exceeded all expectations. We are grateful and humbled by all of the support.

Firstly, a huge “thank you” to the staff and management of La Lucciola for once again offering a wonderful dinner last night. The food, wine and service were impeccable, as always, and the room and atmosphere were magical. Thank you, La Lucciola, for making this all possible!

And thank you also to the 32 Bali Peduli supporters who each paid 5 million for their seat, and then on top of that contributed most generously to allow Bali Peduli to continue providing world-class testing, treatment, education and support services. We are also very grateful to the donors who provided gifts and prizes for the evening.

Blond and beautiful master of ceremonies, Desmond James, kept things under control and organised the collection of funds with the skill of a professional. Never has giving money been so easy and so pleasant.  By the end of the evening, guests were queueing up to sign pledges.

The money collected will go towards the new Paul Latourell clinic in Denpasar, and towards staff and services at the two existing BP clinics. In his opening remarks, Bali Peduli founder, Steve Wignall, pointed out that Bali Peduli services have become the model for similar clinics here in Indonesia and overseas.

So thank you La Lucciola, guests and donors for making this all possible! Thank you for helping us to continue our life saving work in Bali.
