Theatergala – a long tradition of social engagement
CSS Insurance has been a partner and sponsor of the Theatergala since 1994. This charity event has become one of the main fixtures in the cultural and social calendar in Central Switzerland.
All donations and ticket revenues from CSS Theatergala go to Caritas Lucerne. The proceeds are used to support aid projects that help people living below the poverty line in Central Switzerland. Thanks to the commitment of CSS Insurance and the gala attendees, more than CHF 1.4 million has been raised to date for this good cause.
The 26th CSS Theatergala took place on 25 October. This year, a Swiss classic was performed: 'Der Besuch der alten Dame' (The Visit). Philomena Colatrella was able to hand a cheque for CHF 60,785 to Caritas Lucerne to support needy families in the Canton of Lucerne.
