PIECES & Friends @HSG

26.04.2018 – starting at 7pm

Have you been on a project before as a Volunteer or joined the PIECES association as Active or Board Member? Are you 
supporting PIECES as Project or Financial Partner? Or are you just curious what PIECES is all about and eager to learn more?

During this unique and splendid night we want to bring all Friends of PIECES together! You may wonder how our association has evolved since its foundation in 2009? You would like to sneak a peek in the current projects? Or just hang out with the close-knit PIECES community? Take the chance and join us for this wonderful evening!

We are very happy to partner with Kochen unter 5 Fr., as well as with Martel Weinhandlung St. Gallen and Kornhausbräu Rorschach for the catering of our Running Apéro. Furthermore, we are extremely grateful that many corporate sponsors agreed to provide us with vouchers and products which we will give away as part of a raffle. Below, you find more information on the programme – please don’t forget to sign up until the 20th of April!

We are extremely excited to announce that we will partner with Kochen unter 5 Fr. for the catering of our Running Apéro. Kochen unter 5 Fr. is an excellent food start-up, co-founded by Muriel and Joel, two former volunteers and active/board members of PIECES!

Students know the struggle of eating healthy whilst living on a budget. Luckily, Muriel and Joel decided to do something about it and created a beautiful and inspiring cookbook with an astonishing variety of recipes. But that’s not all: As the name suggests, every meal costs less than 5 Fr. Check out their homepage for more information and some recipes to get you started! 

The Apéro will be offered for free. However, we will put up donation boxes and are grateful for every contribution that helps cover our costs and ensure the success of our projects.

A huge thank you to Muriel and Joel for their kind and much appreciated support!


We would also like to thank the Martel Weinhandlung St. Gallen and the Kornhausbräu brewery in Rorschach for providing us with drinks for the Apéro.


We are grateful to our corporate sponsors for supporting us with exceptional prizes for our raffle. Below, you find an overview of some of the companies that provided us with vouchers and products that we will be giving away at the evening. All you need for a chance to become one of the lucky winners is to buy a raffle ticket at the evening – the proceeds greatly support the continuation of our projects.
