CSS Insurance has been a partner and sponsor of the Theatergala since 1994. This charity event has become one of the main fixtures in the cultural and social calendar in Central Switzerland.
All donations and ticket revenues from CSS Theatergala go to Caritas Lucerne. The proceeds are used to support aid projects that help people living below the poverty line in Central Switzerland. Thanks to the commitment of CSS Insurance and the gala attendees, more than CHF 1.4 million has been raised to date for this good cause.
The organising committee has decided to cancel the event in view of the extraordinary situation caused by the coronavirus. However, CSS is supporting Caritas Lucerne this year, too. CSS CEO Philomena handed a cheque of CHF 80,000 (in german) to Caritas Lucerne. This money will be used to support people in the region who live below the poverty line.
