MENGES, Slovenia (Sep. 3, 2019)
An all-star athlete and an exceptional entrepreneur have joined forces at their annual charity golf tournament on the last Saturday in August of this year and successfully broke the record for the highest collected amount in a charity auction in Slovenia. Their auction made history by collecting 239,757.75 Euros for those in need.
This year’s tournament has marked the ninth year of your unwavering support. Again we have managed to build an unimaginable project for those who need our assistance the most. The funds we have collected at this year’s charity golf tournament will be handed over to the Jesenice General Hospital and the Red Ball charity institute towards the children of socially endangered families whose parents are unable to provide a carefree life. We thank you from the bottom of our hearths for your help, perseverance and cooperation because every little bit helps.

The remainder of the funds is intended for children of socially endangered families to try and fulfill at least a little part of their dreams through Christmas presents and winter or summer holidays so that even those who have never stood on skis or seen the sea can enjoy a few carefree days on holiday.
