Last May, the Octopus Foundation was the guest of honor at the special evening organized by the Inner Wheel Club at the Société Nautique de Genève (SNG). For the occasion, Daniela Freggi, director of the Lampedusa Turtle Rescue, joined the team of the Octopus Foundation with which she has collaborated during several years to present her project.

The conference was a great success. The Octopus Foundation presented its various missions and the guests happily showed their interest with their many questions.

To end the evening, an auction was organized for several of Antoine Bugeon’s drawings and Philippe Henry’s photographs. Ariel Fuchs conducted the successful auction which totaled almost CHF 5’000.-. For Julien Pfyffer, president and founder, this evening was the concrete result of a long-lasting project. “The funds we raised will help to finance future projects,” he says. “I wish to thank the Inner Wheel Club for their warm welcome, as well as all the people who were present for their generosity and support.”
