Charity Concert in cooperation with the AIWCD

Friday, 31 May 2023

The International School on the Rhine and the American International Women’s Club of Düsseldorf e.V. joined forces to organize a benefit concert to raise funds for the victims of the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The event, which featured the renowned pianist Robin Goldsby (Piano Girl), was a resounding success, raising a total of 7,695 euros from around 100 guests in attendance and students at ISR, as they contributed to the cause by raising 2,500 euros through a Penny Race.

Throughout the evening, Robin Goldsby played ten carefully selected pieces to captivate the audience and create a memorable experience for all. The proceeds of the benefit concert will be donated to Aktion Deutschland Hilft, which will ensure that the aid goes directly to those affected by the disaster.

During the event, the Turkish Consul General in Düsseldorf, Ayşegül Gökçen Karaarslan, expressed her gratitude for the generous donations and reminded attendees of the long-lasting impact of natural disasters on communities. ISR and the American International Women’s Club have been working together for several years. The success of the benefit concert was made possible by the support of many partners, restaurants, and members of the Turkish community at ISR who provided a delectable buffet for the guests.

Overall, the benefit concert was a heartwarming success that brought the community together to support those in need!
