On May 23 in GKS Gedania sports complex in Gdańsk will take place the Charitable Tournament for Gazeta Wyborcza Tri-city Cup. DRUTEX, as a perennial football sponsor, will take active part in the event – both as a partner of the sports event and the tournament participant. The aim of the initiative is to help seriously ill children, the dependents of the You Have to Dream foundation.
The match, where 10 amateur football teams will take part, will be a true show for football fans and will guarantee great fun. All the seven-member teams, typically for an amateur match, will consist of amateurs only, football lovers who play just for fun. Apart from the teams: Energia, UM Gdańsk, the Self-government of Pomerania, Polpharma, the Airport, Satel, Saur Neptun Gdańsk, Gazeta Wyborcza and DRUTEX, there will also be the ‘Sports Aces Team’. We will see at the pitch i.a. Dariusz Michalczewski, Leszek Blanik, Adam Korol, Artur Siódmiak. For the participants it is a great opportunity to meet Polish sports celebrities and a chance to face them in an atmosphere of fair play and fun.
This is the third edition of the extraordinary event. Up to now almost 30 000 zl have been given for a summer camp for the dependents of the Hospice Foundation, and dreams of four talented children, dependents of Family Welfare Urban Center, have been fulfilled. This year the cause is also worthy, and all the match revenues will be given to the You Have to Dream Foundation that takes care of seriously ill children.
„DRUTEX has been engaging in CSR and sports marketing for ages. This is why our participation in this year charity match, just like last year, is so natural. It is a big thing to play for those who need support the most. It is important that the initiative support ill children, often small football fans – football with capital F. We are looking forward to the match. Our team, as always, will play to win. That would be it sport wise. But most importantly, we will all play for the greatest cause – the dreams of the You Have to Dream Foundation dependents” – says Adam Leik, marketing director at DRUTEX.
