On December 10, 2014, the Eleonores de Provence and the Soroptimist Club have donated 3,000 € to the Blouses Roses at Frejus – Saint Raphael Hospital.
The association of lady winemakers, the Eleonores de Provence, recently hosted a charity dinner at the Chateau Margillière at Brignolles in the Var to raise funds for their support actions.
A part of the € 17,000 collected were donated to the association Les Blouses Roses operating at the Frejus Saint Raphael Hospital.
Les Blouses Roses
Everywhere in France, the Blouses Roses are striving to make sick children – as well as sick people of all ages – smile again. At the Frejus – Saint Raphael Hospital, they daily bring their optimism, joy and life to the pediatric ward.
They are hosting colouring, painting, games workshops, bringing back smile to children, but as well to parents!
A 3,000 € donation
The 17 000 € collected at the Château Margillière charity dinner were donated in part to the association the association Phonambule (music in the hospital ) and the association Les Blouses Roses, in partnership with the Soroptimist Club (a well known humanitarian association).
The Eleonores de Provence supported by the Soroptimist Club in Draguignan, presented the Blouses Roses with a 3, 000 € check to enable the association to offer some quality formations to their dedicated volunteers and purchase some material for the activities. Valérie Rousselle, Président of the Eleonores, accompanied by Hermance Caro, handed the donation to Caroline Draca, representing the Frejus Saint Raphael comitee of the Blouses Roses. To the delight of the children, the Eleonores had brought with them a delicious chocolate cake for the “goûter”!
