About the event

Dear guests and art lovers,

With heartfelt gratitude, I extend to you the warmest of welcomes to the 2nd Charity Auction and Gala Dinner of the foundation Spolu s odvahou, a member of Bátor Tábor. The auction is an event that combines a passion for art with the determination to help a good cause. We are very happy to share this passion and this commitment with
our esteemed partners – The Pudil Family Foundation, Kunsthalle Praha, and Kodl Contemporary – and with you, the guests of the charity auction. Thank you for supporting the mission of Spolu s odvahou and helping to change the lives of the chronically ill by giving them hope and courage.

At Spolu s odvahou, we help seriously ill children return to life by taking them to therapeutic camps and giving them courage and “holding” their hands as they return to school. The goal of our programs is to bring laughter and joy and thus ease the mental burden associated with a serious illness.

Currently, we have launched a school program at the Nedašovská Street Primary School and Special Nursery School in Prague’s Zličín neighborhood. Through this program, we have had the honor of working in the classroom with more than thirty exceptional children who have been touched by adversity. Also, in July of this year, after a pause caused by the pandemic, we successfully took another group of twenty-five children to a unique therapeutic camp in Hatvan, Hungary – the only one of its kind in Central Europe. These programs were made possible by the support you provided during the first year of the charity auction, and for that we would like to extend to you our greatest appreciation and gratitude.

We still have a lot of work to do to fulfill our mission and transform more lives, but tonight we can pause for a moment and celebrate the courage shown by the exceptional children we work with.

Thank you for your support, and good luck with the auction!

Petr Šmíd
