The staff and management of the Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc participated in a charity event called the Christmas Stall of the Dobré místo pro život (Good Place to Live) citizens association. Selling punch at a stall on Horní náměstí (Upper Square) they collected money to support wheelchair users in Olomouc. "The event was very successful," said Michael Prstek, the operation manager of the Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc. "We collected 19,025 crowns, which is great. I'm glad that we pleased the people of Olomouc with great punch and supported a good cause."
The Christmas Stall of the Good Place to Live goes on the entire month from 23 November to 22 December 2014, with volunteers from more than 30 institutions participating, from businesses to schools, and healthcare institutions to fitness and sport clubs. Every day the Christmas Stall supports a different project. In addition to wheelchair users, money was also collected for the Ostrůvek Children's Centre, the Deaf Union Olomouc and the Tamtam Early Help Centre. This isn't the first time that Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc has cooperated with the citizen association; it also participated in the Day for Mum event, which supported women who care for handicapped children.
