The profits from ticket sales and sponsorship are donated to the Students' Fund of the College of Europe which is used to provide a scholarship for a Belgian student to study at the College.
A number of sponsors have donated prizes so we have decided to organise a raffle… the winner will be drawn by a representative of the College on the evening of the concert at the reception. First prize: all inclusive brunch for 2 persons at the Apollo Arthotel (Brugge).
