Wolkenschieber Gala

Wolkenschieber Gala: "Cooking for a smile"

The "Wolkenschieber" (German for cloud-pushers) have committed themselves to helping children in the region in partnership with dedicated Bremen enterprises. The initiative was founded by the JOKE Event AG in 2007 and since then has organized the "Wolkenschieber Gala" every two years.

The fundraiser connects the culinary skills of regional and national top chefs with the performances of famous artists. Prominent guests who actively shape the evening complete the gala. The proceeds from the ticket sales benefit various charitable organizations in full and support them in their active and important work. The entire event is financed by means of donations and contributions in kind.

Since the start of the project, the Beluga Shipping GmbH has been a partner of the initiative and contributes to helping children in the region. In a figurative sense, the project helps to make the sun shine for the children again. Thanks to the "Wolkenschieber Gala" it is possible to lastingly support young people and offer them new prospects for, and ways to, a successful future.

The first gala on December 1, 2007 at the Bremen Maritim Hotel & Congress Centrum resulted in a donated total of 117,000 euro for charitable organizations. This success laid the foundation for the acceptance of long-term social responsibility in the Bremen region.  

The success of the gala fundraiser became visible in spring 2008:

• The donations allowed the Zentrum für trauernde Kinder und Jugendliche e.V. to secure places for 26 children for an entire year. 
• The proceeds ensured the preservation of the emergency department at the Bremer Mädchenhaus e.V.  
• The MeMax Stiftung renders possible the education and psychotherapeutic treatment of two children of a stalking victim.

Last year again citizens, celebrities and businesses committed themselves as "Wolkenschieber". As patron of the gala, the Bremen mayor Jens Böhrnsen stressed the importance of the many helping hands in Bremen. He called on private people and enterprises to participate as "Wolkenschieber" and was pleased about the event paying tribute to the outstanding achievements of regional organizations.

Last year’s "Wolkenschieber Gala" on Saturday, November 14, 2009, raised a donation total of 140.401,03 Euro and exceeded the amount of 2007. The following organizations are supported by the gala this time: 

• Kinderhospiz Jona
• EPSYMO e.V.
• Schattenriss e.V
• Ein Zuhause für Kinder
• Trauerland - Zentrum für trauernde Kinder und Jugendliche e.V.
• Peter Maffay-Stiftung

The JOKE Event AG is already planning the next “Wolkenschieber Gala” on December 3, 2011.
