The Fourth Charity Umbrella Festival was held in Celje under the auspices of the women’s club Ženski Lions klub Celje. Following the event, 3,400 euros of voluntary donations were collected, which the organizers will allocate to the needs of multi-child families from Celje and the suburbs living in unfavourable social conditions.
Each participant of the event, who made a donation, received as a gift an umbrella decorated by a local artist. In total, 80 artists from Celje took part in the action. Colourful umbrellas were also used to decorate the intersection of Prešernova and Stanetova streets. Besides the masters of the brush, different institutions of the tourism industry and stores have participated in the event for the first time. They donated funds and put up decorated umbrellas in front of their buildings.
In addition to the women’s club Ženski Lions klub Celje, the festival was attended by representatives of other local clubs, such as Celje, Celje Keleia, Celjski vitezi and Mavrice. Last Saturday, guests and residents of the city could enjoy a rich cultural and entertainment programme with performances of dancers and a folk orchestra.
