Grand Charity Auction

About the Grand Charity Auction 2024

Initiated by the Omenaa Foundation, the Grand Charity Auction TOP CHARITY is a leading charitable event in Poland, held periodically. It brings together prominent figures from the worlds of business, art, and culture to support philanthropic causes. The organisation of the event is a collaborative effort between the Omenaa Foundation, OmenaArt Foundation, and the Wilanów Palace, with notable backing from Corporate Connections. This network connects significant Polish entrepreneurs, playing a crucial role in the gala’s success.


The previous event was a success, raising 28,573,000 PLN. It gained recognition from the Luxury Lifestyle Awards, a global initiative which, for the last fifteen years, has highlighted excellence in luxury goods and services. The auction received an award in the Best Luxury Auction Event category. Entrepreneurs and artists contribute to the event by participating in the auction, which features art from Poland and abroad, unique designs, and Grand Emotions experiences. Thirty percent of the proceeds go to the Philanthropic Consortium, supporting 23 grant projects and 8 additional initiatives in its first year. The remainder aids the education of children in Polish orphanages, Ukrainian children, street children in Africa, and other European foundations, including the Andrea Bocelli Foundation.

The Artistic Council, which includes Iwona Büchner-Grzesiak, Rafał Kamecki, Boris Kudlička, Kama Zboralska, and Omenaa Mensah, is responsible for selecting the auctioned works. These selections result from extensive discussions and collaborations among art enthusiasts and experts throughout the year preceding the auction. The event is meticulously planned and held at the 17th- century Baroque Wilanów Palace. A team of artists, curators, and scenographers, along with about 1500 people, spend over ten months preparing for the Grand Charity Auction, ensuring its smooth execution and impact.
