In the middle of the Heidelberg Old Town at a small music school, Robin Meloy Goldsby performed a touching, funny and heartwarming concert for 30 guests at the Heidelberg International Women’s Club’s Benefit Concert on December 5th. Robin played beautiful pieces on the piano, a combination of her own composed pieces and classics from her multiple albums, and shared three delightful and relatable stories about visiting German saunas, performing for Prince Charles, and shopping at Ikea while pregnant.

It was not only just a wonderful concert, but the Heidelberg IWC raised money for the FAWCO Target Project, Hope Beyond Displacement, which provides education and skills training for refugee women and girls in Amman, Jordan, through the Collateral Repair Project. All proceeds from the tickets, plus 50% of the sales of Robin’s books and albums, combined to an impressive €635 for the night! The Heidelberg IWC thanks the clubs of FAWCO Region 5 for their support for the evening as well.
The Heidelberg IWC, not even a year old, has supported the Target Project all throughout 2018, raising a total of €1,215 through 5 different fundraising events and activities. Well done!
The Club says a big thank you to Robin Goldsby for entertaining us in fun and inspiring evening.
