The party February 2nd at Fokker Event Center was another one to be framed. Having two rooms with different music styles (Disco room and Upbeat hits hall) is well received. You generally dance in the hall with your favorite hits but occasionally skip to the other room.

The Vogelhospitaal in Haarlem

free workshop for 70 volunteers

The volunteers could all! So on Saturday morning, March 2, a promise will be made: Appelman Events provided a free team outing for all volunteers and staff of Vogelhospitaal Haarlem. We met them on the charity market last year Company and Society in the Philharmonie of Haarlem.

“Of course we help you on a fun team outing!!”

The Vogelhospitaal Foundation does not have a budget for a trip, but they do so much for free. Appelman Events offered itself on the market. But what are you going to do together? The approximately 70 volunteers are of all ages, young and old and it can still be fresh in early March. Some are not very good on the leg but you want to do 100%. So we came to the Haka workshop. Did you know that this is a very cool and wanted team outing? We have put together a special website for it (Gpreferably call from 30 people.)
