Last December 21st, Saturday, we celebrated Christmas Dinner of the Foundation at Hotel Barceló Sants in Barcelona. It was an important date to gather together with all the persons who are part of our entity and share a day together.
We started the day arranging the tables to receive 554 persons, among volunteers, persons under our support, professionals, and members of the Patronage. We decorated a part of the dining room with the postcards we had received from the participants of the IV Contest of Christmas Postcards.
We also had the collaborations of six persons of the programme #ICanToo be a volunteer who were in charge of accompanying the attendants with reduced mobility to the tables assigned, among other tasks.
At the time of the dessert, the three winners and the 7 finalists of the contest of postcards received the correspondent awards and diplomas by Jordi Costa, president of Som – Fundació.
Finally, three professionals of the foundation who have recently been retired went on to the stage and received a warm applause from all the people there. Jordi Costa thanked them for their dedication to the entity and they were given a present from the foundation.
However, there was still the most expecting moment to come, which everybody identified with the first notes of the song. A group of people came into the dining room at the rhythm of the music taking with the bags full of presents to distribute to the attendants.
An unforgettable day with a great atmosphere to toast
at Christmas one year more together!
