The owner of the Castle, Michał Bożek, welcomed guests with the old Polish custom – he shared bread and salt. The castle is undergoing renovation works, so the meeting took place in its ground-floor part.
During the meeting, new Club members presented their professional achievements and plans related to club activities like cooperation with the PRESTIŻ Magazyn who is who as the authors of essays and articles. The latest issue of the magazine was also handed to them.
Urszula Ciołeszyńska, the founder of the “Embassy for Women Entrepreneurship”, presented her new book entitled “Nigdy się nie poddawaj!” (Never give up !) , dedicated to outstanding entrepreneurial women, among whom were also members of PRESTIGE CLUB.
A great surprise was prepared by the Club member, Beata Drzazga, coming to the Castle with a group of artists – soloists from South America whose repertoire originating from several countries of this continent and European hits caused a sensation among the Club members, especially since it was the name day of the host at the Michał Bożek Castle, to whom the artists dedicated some songs. Applause was endless, so the scheduled short concert turned into a spectacle which was an unforgettable experience. The old noble nest – the Castle in Grodziec – was the arena of many events in its centuries-old history, but artists from America were certainly a novelty.
After the concert, inside two knight halls and in accordance with a permanent castle custom, we were spoiled with delicious dishes from the castle kitchen.
Having finished the ceremony, some guests with the prince Krzysztof Radziwiłł at the helm took advantage of the invitation of Jan Kukuczka and spent the evening at the KUKUCZKA Gallery, where the “Beskidy Integration of Art” took place.
