BACK TO THE 90s MEMORABLE TWB FUNDRAISER IN TALLINN

The latest fundraiser for Translators Without Borders (TWB) organised by Lludejo's Andrew Hickson was a feature of the T-UPDATE 2019 pre-conference drinks reception hosted by the Association of Estonian Translation Companies (AETC) in Tallinn.

The theme of the evening, the 90s, was the perfect excuse for T-UPDATERS to pitch up in get-ups redolent of the chosen era. While the key objective of the evening was raising much needed funds to support the work of TWB, there was certainly a competitive edge among the party-goers to win the prize for the best dressed male and female. Igor Marach, CEO of Technolex Translation Studio sported an impressive 'faux' tattoo, which won him the best dressed male, while Marta Aragão, CEO of Inkopulis, triumphed as the best dressed 90s woman. However, the main objective of the evening was raising money to enable TWB, which, with generous donations from a long list of sponsors, rasied nearly €1,400 for the cause.
