CSS 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 and the gala attendees, more than CHF 1.7 million has been raised to date for this good cause.
The 27th CSS Theatergala took place on 5 November 2021. This year, «Le nozze di Figaro», a much-loved opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was enjoyed by all. Philomena Colatrella was able to hand a cheque for CHF 65,000 to Caritas Lucerne to support needy families in the Canton of Lucerne.
The next CSS Theatergala will be held on Friday, 28 October 2022.
