A record breaking 767,000 PLN was raised at the ninth Charity Real Estate Beach Volleyball Tournament, which took place on 2nd August at La Playa Music Bar in Warsaw. 56 teams and 392 players took part in the tournament, while the entire event was attended by approximately 2,000 people. DEKADA S.A./BOIG, PZU and MLP GROUP S.A. claimed the top three positions. Honorary patronage for the event was overseen by the Polish Volleyball Federation.
According to JLL, the total raised by the event over its nine years now stands at 2.3 million PLN.
‘The size of the total raised at this year’s event went way beyond our expectations. We expected that the 9th edition of the tournament would attract even more participants and allow us to collect a record-breaking amount. However, we had no idea that this year’s total would surpass last year’s result by a staggering 388,000 PLN. In addition, this year’s charity was just as competitive as the action on the court. I wish to thank all the players, attendees, sponsors and patrons for their active participation and generosity, and representatives of Panattoni, Globalworth, Gleeds, BNP Paribas Real Estate and JLL for their enormous contributions. It is a truly fantastic feeling to see how each year the entire real estate industry comes together for such a great cause – to help the youngest ones in our society,’ comments Tomasz Trzósło, Managing Director, JLL Poland.
The event’s grand total of 667,000 PLN, raised from team registration fees, the auction of items from sponsors and individual donations collected on the day, with additional 100,000 PLN later added by Globalworth, has been donated in its entirety to Stowarzyszenie Rodziców i Przyjaciół Dzieci Niewidomych i Słabowidzących “Tęcza” (“Rainbow Association of Parents and Friends of the Blind and Visually Impaired Children”). The money raised will support the modernization of the children’s center, the construction of a sensory therapy garden which will be situated alongside the building as well as the purchase of ophthalmologist diagnostic equipment.
