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 CSS Theatergala took place for the 28th time on 28 October. This year, the programme featured "Dancing Voices" by choreographers Tom Weinberger and Marion Zurbach. Philomena Colatrella was able to hand a cheque for CHF 65'000 to Caritas Lucerne to support families living in hardship in the canton of Lucerne.
The next Theatergala will be held on Friday, 27 October 2023.
