But the story is not defenitlely finished yet.
In cooperation with the ecitior Bruno Gmünder we proudly present an illustrated book of our project.
95 pages of pure "Alpine Erotica" in the typical MEN IN THE ALPS style... to remember the last years and to keep it in Your bookshelf. And also usable as one attractive gift for Your friends. And the best: We sell the book of course in the name of charity.
The 26th of June was officially the last day of the MEN IN THE ALPS project. In a traditional inn near Bolzano we organized a small but fine farewell party with typical tyrolean meals and drinks. And the last time we were proud to overhand thre donation cheques to "our" associations: two times 8.000 EUR (10.900 USD) to debra-South Tyrol ("Butterfly children") and Aids Help Desk Munich and one time 4.000 EUR (5.500 USD) to pro positiv.
We would like to thank all the people, especially our models, that made possible our project. But the warmest thank is dedicated to our clients that brought our charity calendar to a big international success.
Good bye to everybody‼!
Peter Viehweider and Gerhard Zanetti
