Each year at our Annual General Meeting, our members vote for a local Swiss charity to support for the upcoming club year. The majority of our fundraising and volunteer efforts throughout the year are focused on this chosen organization. We host a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for our organization of choice.

Our local charity for the 2018-2019 club year is Beautiful After Breast Cancer Foundation
