Event Information

2021 Christmas DinnerSenza-titolo-5



The European Paratroopers CHRISTMAS DINNER & SOCIAL will be held in January instead of December, because of the governments imposed lockdowns, restrictions on people's movements and limitation of freedom of travel. 

To celebrate the end of 2020 we invite you and your families to join us for our annual Christmas Dinner & Social. The dinner is the most important event of the year for our Association, and it serves a dual purpose: providing our members with their families and friends the chance to socialize and celebrate together the end of the year, and servicing needy children in Europe with a charity fundraising that will give them the opportunity to receive toys and supplies for the Christmas Holidays. This year the event will be held at the Hotel Krzyski in Tarnów, Poland, on Friday, January 29. The evening will begin with cocktail hour starting at 6:00 p.m., followed by the dinner at 7:00 p.m. and by the charity auction and the awarding ceremony at 9:00 p.m., the night will continue with live music, christmas quiz and raffle. The funds from the event will go to the Toy Drop - Airborne Veterans For Children In Need - Project supported by our Operational Detachment. Tickets are €45.00 per person (EPA Members and their Families) and €55.00 per person (Guests) and the dress is EPA Social Uniform/Class A Uniform (Military personnel) and Semi-Formal/Formal Attire (Civilian personnel). At the time of the event the EPA Airborne Merit Cross, as well as other internal and international awards will be awarded to our members or non-members who offered their meritorious service, continuous commitment or financial support to the Association’s activities and operations. Auction prizes are sought for the benefit of the Operational Detachment who will care of the charity. I’m sure all of you will both enjoy this great event and the cultural and social life of the West Galicia/Lesser Poland region. Any attendees requiring a hotel are advised that the restaurant is part of Krzyski hotel and therefore we can arrange special rates, especially if booked early. For those who want to stay longer and attend our Marksmanship and/or Jump events, there is also the option of a 3 day package (with transfer to the Shooting Range and Drop Zone in Ukraine and back to Tarnów). Please contact the office if you are interested in the whole package.
