Dear BeneKids enthusiasts,
We present to you the newsletter of September and October 2019. This month, we found the Board of 2020, had another P.A.T.E. event and ran the 16km long Dam tot Damloop! Here you can read all the highlights of the month and money we raised! Have fun reading 🙂
Dam tot Damloop 2019
We did it again! The 2019 Dam tot Damloop was hosted in Amsterdam this year on the 22ndof September. The Dam tot Damloop is a run from Amsterdam city centre to Zaandam. Many supporters and bands were alongside the road with gave such a motivation boost for the runners. Together with an amazing team of C.F. BeneKids ambassadors we managed to raise €3082 for charity! We are so happy with this result and the motivation of our runners and sponsors. Thank you so much!!
More pictures of this day can be found on our FaceBook page.
New board search and announcement!
After we posted the search announcement for the new board of C.F. BeneKids, we were very happy with the applications that came in. After some interviews and getting to know everyone we are more than proud to announce the new board of C.F. BeneKids for 2020,
The new board exists of Timo Schaafsma, Sophia Hoek, Ika Wondergem and Priscille Nguyen Tu. The board will start directly after the Board Change dinner, scheduled at 26h of November. Beforehand, the upcoming board and the current board will go on a board change weekend to train the new board for the upcoming year.
P.A.T.E. EVENT Beer for charity
Due to the weather forecasts, the Boat for Charity event changed to a La Cave Beer for Charity event. We invited Onno from Hotel Con Corazon to speak during the event. He spoke to the guests about plans of Hotel Con Corazon and some more general explanation about the social impact of the organization. Also, we (the board of BeneKids), explained the guests more about our events and general information.
We also organized a lottery with amazing prizes sponsored by Spaghetteria, Het Rijksmuseum and many more. Together with the sales of lottery tickets and sales of our very own Gracias Cerveza, we managed to raise €395,61 for BeneKids! We are very proud and thankful to all supporters and the P.A.T.E. team who organized this event.
Upcoming events: HTH 90
