F.E.L.I.S. organizes fundraising for a park in Otrabanda

Fundraising-FELISWILLEMSTAD – The F.E.L.I.S. Foundation organizes a benefit on October 18, 2013. The foundation wants to raise money for a park in the historic Otrobanda District in Willemstad. "Our foundation is on a plot of 1000 m2 which now only has a covered podium," said Gerda Petersen, founder of F.E.L.I.S. "Now we want to create a nice meeting place where children and adults can go." The foundation has been approached by a captain of a sailing ship who has offered his vessel for the fundraising evening which makes the event extra special.

The department 'Wings of Support’ of the Dutch airline KLM has donated a play set and there are also plants ordered to brighten up the park. There is more money needed to finish up everything. The benefit evening will be held at the shipyard in Otrobanda (next to La Tentashon / Teatro Luna Blou) on the sailing ship. First, the children who are cared for by the foundation will be put in the spotlight. There will be all kinds of activities between 14:00 and 17:00 and the little ones can take a look at the ship.

From 17:30 to 20:30 the actual benefit evening will take place. Visitors are treated to a wine and cheese, snacks, lounge music and also allowed to go on the ship. Tickets for the evening cost 100 guilders and can be ordered by calling Gerda Petersen at 6988-543 or Shari Emelina at 5162-630.
