December 15, 2018 - The first Regent Charity Ball was held on Friday, 14 December at the Regent's full banquet hall. The donors collected €15,665 to be donated to the General Hospital of Kotor for the purchase of necessary medical equipment - two defibrillators.
Opening the Regent Charity Ball, Kai Dieckmann, general manager of the hotel said: "The Regent Charity Ball is an expression of our need to thank you, our partners and associates for the excellent cooperation of all these years, especially during the past 2018, and to give the community something worthwhile.
The General Hospital Kotor, which is over 70 years old, gravitates the citizens of the four municipalities of the Montenegrin coast - Kotor, Tivat, Herceg Novi, and Budva, as well as the growing number of tourists. With this in mind and exhaustive understanding of tourism and the need for quality infrastructure and services at one destination, the management of Hotel Regent wanted not only to point out the needs of a complex medical institution but also to recognize the efforts of all those who work in it. They are those who make it available to the citizens of Kotor and Tivat, their guests and consequently to the guests of Hotel Regent - Kotor Hospital is a proper spa address if needed."
The Montenegrin Prime Minister's Cabinet participated with the largest single donation. The sponsors - Adriatic Marinas - Porto Montenegro, Adriale Holding, Cogimar, Florist Nina, Free Jack, Green Factory, Kotor Municipality, Print All, Savina Winery, Zoran Radonjic Photography and Media Partner RTCG supported the first Regent Charity Ball.
Guests also enjoyed a raffle within which they had the opportunity to buy prizes for accommodation in some of the most prestigious hotels in Europe and the region, while the Regent, Porto Montenegro, Discover Montenegro, and the Tivat Tourism Organization offered Montenegrin beachfront arrangements. All funds raised by the sale of raffles are part of the amount of the donation.
"Thank you for such a wonderful evening that gathered us around a nice goal. I am honored that you have chosen the Kotor Hospital as the institution you have been dedicated to, and thank you for purchasing the necessary medical equipment to improve the conditions of our patients' treatment," said Dr. Ivan Ilic, head of the General Hospital of Kotor.
