Gamekeeper’s Benefit Ball for the Kolowrátek Endowment Fund
On the last Friday of November, the staff of Kolowratovy lesy, a. s., held the popular, 6th annual, Gamekeeper’s Benefit Ball. The Trumpeters of the Kolowrat Forests opened the evening with a gala fanfare, followed with opening speeches by JUDr. Dominika Kolowrat-Krakowská and Head of Administration of Kolowratovy lesy, a. s., Vladimír Šístek.
The Benefit Gamekeeper’s Ball is organized in cooperation with the Kolowrátek Endowment Fund, which supports children and teenagers. Mrs. Dominika Kolowrat-Krakowská introduced the guests to the mission and activities of Kolowratek. The Endowment Fund is the main patron of the Children's Home in Tachov, and therefore part of the proceeds from the Gamekeeper’s Ball - admission, raffle and auction of European deer hunting - will, as in the previous year, be used for leisure activities of children from the children's home.
The diverse cultural program was enriched by folklore ensemble Kaštánek from the Children's Home in Tachov. The children, in ancient folk costumes and accompanied by their teachers, sang folk songs and carols. The members of Kaštánku had also rehearsed several compositions together with the Trumpeters of the Kolowrat Forests. The entire and very pleasant evening was concluded by the Trumpeters, who prepared a program composed of famous hunting songs, hunting fanfares and signals.
