Quickly  the idea was to select twelve songs of ‘VOF De Kunst’ and to deliver a special ‘Villa Pardoes CD’. "It's actually a kind of collection. The songs that are on it, are also found on previous CDs of our theater, but this is a special CD. Including the proceeds will fully benefit to the charity." You can bay the CD for € 9.00 at a stores who sells the regular CD's ‘VOF De Kunst’. And the cooperation that emerged quickly led to more. Thus ‘VOF De Kunst’ during a Back to the 80's party in favor of Villa Pardoes and particular for this occasion especially to support the charity live for the first time in a long time the international hits "Suzanne" and "Één kopje koffie' were performed.

I came through the Dutch branch of the Ben & Jerry's Ice Supplier for the first time in contact with Villa Pardoes. I was so impressed that I immediately decided to devote myself to the reputation of Villa Pardoes and as businesses, service clubs and private donors to draw the line to support this initiative. Villa Pardoes namely actually helps children with life-threatening illness. They are received by enthusiastic people who really give a week of their lives to these children and their families."

"My kids are healthy. So I can hardly imagine what it means when your child is ill. What consequences it has for the child, parents, brothers and sisters. And the fact that it is precisely also the siblings of the sick child who also need and get attention at Villa Pardoes, I appreciate it. "
