Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
On 22 September, 120 teams are scheduled to participate in the fourth edition of the Stars & Cars Rally.
This year the Stars & Cars Rally is raising money for the Bart de Graaff Foundation, an organisation that helps young people who suffer from a life-threatening condition to set up their own company. The Stars & Cars Rally is an initiative of the Vereniging het Verschil (The Make a Difference Foundation of the Netherlands), the objective of which is to make a difference for a chosen charity every year. The rally is a very successful money-making event; last year it raised by € 150,000 for the Metakids Foundation. There is considerable interest in this year’s event, and rally participants will include Dutch celebrities such as Jeroen van den Boom, Irene Moors and Bart de Graaff’s sister Mirjam, who chairs the Foundation. Ms de Graaff will sound the gong to mark the start of the rally.
