In addition to the 15 000 kroons from the boxes, Olympic Casino added the charity jackpot collected during November and the sum was further increased by the charity lottery and roulette game thak took place at the party. The donation check was accepted by Kristel Praun, the representative of Lions Club Tallinn Diana, and Remo Holsmer, Kristiine's the city district elder.
All of the money will be donated through LC Diana to the orphans living in Tallinn at the patronage of their grandparents, to enable them to take part in activity groups, have hobbies or buy clothes and footwear.
