Geneva Red Cross
As part of its annual Civic Concerns programme, the AIC identifies a local charity to support. Our beneficiary in 2015 was the Geneva Red Cross and more specificaly the program for the homeless in Geneva. Club members raised over CHF 11,000 in donations for the Geneva Red Cross. Thanks to all who contributed.
Once again, the AIC and AIWC Bake Sale volunteers joined in all the fun had by over a thousand participants and volunteers who were present at the Paddle for Cancer event supporting ESCA (English Speaking Cancer Association) as well as Zoe4Life and Make-A-Wish Foundations, held on September 6, 2015 at Lac de Joux. The weather this year was a lot more forgiving than last year. The AIC team was made up of Dr. Tony Boncev, Amandine Fabre-Dalsace, Gretchen Shaw and Civic Concerns Chair Mary Bernasconi. Our Bake Sale table featured delicious culinary contributions which energised all the rowers and cheering fans.
AIC Exec member Reto Egger once again donated 500 donuts from McDonalds which delighted the young rowers especially. We brought in a little over CHF 1,300 thanks to the many culinary contributions from the AIWC and the AIC. Many thanks to all that turned out to support this worthy annual event.

As part of its annual Civic Concerns programme, the AIC identifies a local charity to support. Our beneficiary in 2014 was hospice La Maison de Tara in Chêne-Bourg. Club members raised CHF 9,500 in donations for La Maison de Tara. Thanks to all who contributed.
