AmsterdamDinner brings in 780.000 Euro for the Health Insurance Fund

Jun 30, 2007


At the fifteenth AmsterdamDinner which took place in Amsterdam on June 23rd, 780.000 Euro was raised. The Health Insurance Fund is the beneficiary of the Aids Dinner for this year and the next two years.

The Aids Dinner has been organized each year since 1992 by the ‘Big enterprise’, a Dutch association of enterprises, which supports HIV/AIDS-related initiatives. It attracted a variety of business people, politicians, artists, and civil society organizations. During the evening lottery tickets were sold by Dutch celebrities. The Dutch prince Friso van Oranje and his wife Mabel were among the guests.

For the next three years the Health Insurance Fund will be the beneficiary of the funds raised at the dinner. The idea of the Health Insurance Fund emerged two years ago during a Amsterdam Dinner. When health systems are strengthened, people no longer have to die from AIDS. Part of the funds are destined to a HIV/AIDS clinic in Tanzania.

The Dutch princess Mabel of Oranje thought it was fantastic that so many desicionmakers, politicians and celebrities gathered to join forces in the fight against Aids. According to Mabel "In the Netherlands HIV is no longer a deadly disease, but in developing countries it disrupts entire societies." The cooperation with the business community is very important to achieve sustainable solutions. Mabel mentioned that the gala provided a very good balance between information and emotion in a festive setting.

The Aids Fonds and de Grote Onderneming, (DGO, in English: "The Big Enterprise"), are happy with the proceeds. At de fourteen previous editions a total of 2,2 million Euro had been raised for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
