Charity swing – packed Bosch concert

Hatvan – The Bosch Budapest Big Band gave a charity concert to a full house in Grassalkovich Mansion, Hatvan, on 21 October. The Bosch plant in Hatvan matched every forint taken from sale of the concert tickets. By decision of the local Bosch staff, the proceeds of 2,5 million forints were donated to the Bátor Tábor Foundation. An audience of more than 130 persons attended the concert by the Bosch Budapest Big Band and its star guest, Orsi Kozma, an initiative by Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft. of Hatvan. Volker Schilling, Commercial Plant Manager of the plant said, “I am sure that through this concert we have made an enjoyable evening for the audience and, more than that, the money collected will mean even more great experiences for the children who come to the camps organised by Bátor Tábor. We hope that in this way we are contributing to their recovery”

Together for the community
Founded 15 years ago, the Bátor Tábor provides seriously ill children and their families life-changing experiences, strength and tools to live and to recover. Each year, it provides therapeutic recreation for nearly a thousand children with tumours and chronic diseases free of charge at camps in Hatvan. Through their special experiences at the camps, the children boost their self-confidence and self-esteem, improve their social skills, and most importantly, strengthen their faith in recovery. „Kata Tóth, Fundraising Director of the Bátor Tábor Foundation, said, "We are very grateful to Bosch for an evening that has combined entertainment with charity, and for its support of the Bátor Tábor Foundation. This donation is also a major contribution to our operations and will put a smile on lots of children's faces.”

The Bosch Budapest Big Band is made up of Bosch staff who like making music in their spare time. For this concert, they invited jazz singer Orsi Kozma to join them for the evening. Volker Schilling stated that “Both Bosch and the Bátor Tábor Foundation have longstanding roots in Hatvan. Bosch is the most prominent employer in the region and it is through its corporate social responsibility that it is contributing to the development of the camp with tonight’s concert.”
