AGBC Heidelberg

22. September 2018

Everyone hates cancer.  

Most everyone you know has lost a colleague, friend, relative or loved one to cancer.  And everyone I know is happy to fight it in any way possible. After much planning, your Heidelberg and Rhein Neckar Chapter of the AGBC has put together an event to help in this fight, Heidelberg's premier charity event of the fall season.

All net proceeds and contributions are going to cancer research at the DKFZ, Germany's National Cancer Research Center.

Event Details:  Saturday, 22 September,  First in-house event starting at 1600.

It all begins with a gentle 4K walk along the Neckar River, starting anytime after 1400. Start and stop at the lobby of the Hotel Marriott.  Your physical condition and the weather have an effect on this, so the walk is voluntary.

Keynote Presentation:  We are excited that we've been able to get a talk by the award winning scientist, Prof. Dr. Peter Lichter on some of the latest successes in combatting cancer. Prof. Lichter is Director of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT), the head of the division "Molecular Genetics" DKFZ Heidelberg, and a Full Professor for Medicine at the Univ. of Heidelberg.
This will be the first event for some attendees and will go from 1600 to 1630 in a Marriott conference room (in English). 

Neckar Riverboat Cruise: Following this, we migrate to the Terrace of the Marriott to board the Riverboat for our cruise, starting at 1720.  After the cruise up the Neckar, we return to the Terrace of the Hotel Marriott for our Reception. 

Marriott Terrace Reception:  We'll enjoy our reception on their beautiful terrace from 1830 until 2030. Symbolic check presentation to the DKFZ at approx 1900.  In order to assure the success of this event, we have guaranteed the DKFZ a minimum charitable contribution of $100,000.-

We hope for the presence of the press, Rhein Neckar Zeitung and perhaps also television from Frankfurt.

Good news is that because of the wonderful support of the Marriott, we can bring you all of this for a ticket price of only 50 Euro. 

But we shall collect the money differently for this event.  Please make a bank transfer to the Heidelberger Volksbank, payable to  AGBC Heidelberg, Purpose: AGBC Charity Walk
DE72 6729 0000 0008 7449 04 
Please print your name carefully on the bank transfer form so we know who the money is from. 

Everything in excess of the 50 per person will go to Cancer Research, and they will provide proper tax receipts for any amount in excess of 50 Euro.
If you are paying for multiple persons on one transfer, please simply send us an Email explaining the breakout (Heidelberg@AGBC.de). 

Staying for dinner after the reception?  Then the parking is free.  Otherwise, it is 5 Euro per car for the day.  Want to stay overnight at the Marriott? Special for this event at Single 150, double at 165.

You don't need to be a member of the AGBC for this event.  Everyone is invited.  But it might provide a good opportunity to join, at only 75/year. Most importantly, this should be a heck of a good time and provide support for a cause everyone can subscribe to.  

Lets do it together.
 
Thanks,  Barry

KNOWLEDGE BASE

Expats face a couple of administrative challanges like how to pay taxes, how to get health insurance, how to vote from abroad plus the daily surprises of living in a foreign country in a different culture which eventually has every once in a while a different approach to implementing values like "life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness" to daily activities like queuing or the use of knife and fork, let alone that you don't find your stuff on the shelves in the supermarket and that - after all that progress that has been made in the last 20 years - they still speak a foreign language …
