Volleyball stars Evgeni “The Gun” Ivanov and Ivan Kolev kicked off the charitable tournament of the Holiday Heroes, with more than 20 participating teams of socially responsible companies.
On June 30th Bulgaria’s Holiday Heroes summoned once more the volleyball aces of the Bulgarian socially responsible business for another sport event under the motto Sport with Mission. Beach volley enthusiasts were welcomed by our well-known host Dobromir Lazarov at the open-air courts at the town of Bozhurishte near Sofia. It’s already the fourth time we’ve been kindly let to use this venue to help our mission!
Evgeni Ivanov was the one to draw the lots at the opening of the event. A fierce competition followed, which resulted in Right Rental taking home the gold. Again! (though it’s fair). Pontica Solutions came second, then VMware. The teams who ranked among the first three got their prizes on the podium by one of the most successful Bulgarian volleyballers of all time in many European championships, Ivan Kolev. The silver medalists Pontica Solutions were first-timers in a tournament of ours, as well as Paysafe, GTT, City Express and PROS. We were happy to see on the courts also the teams of our usual supporters InTime, UPS, Advanced Nutrients, Bayer, Visteon, Vivacom, KPMG, DB Schenker, BBDO, Bright Marketing Research and Lidl.
This edition of Sport with Mission was backed by 2sport4life too, who organized for the audience special workouts – Body Transformer, Wonder Kid (for children), and baby-and-mom workout routines by Liliya Suradzhieva Raykov. We relied on our friends Domino’s Pizza for lunch. Lactima Balkan and table waters Savina for their part took care all players had their H2O right and were hyper fresh. There were participant gifts for all by STR8 , B.U., Bioten, Carroten и IVB Cosmetics. The winners’ cup was courtesy of K&K Sport, and the champions got also yummy Roger’s chips.
Thank you all for your trust and support which helped raise BGN 14,650 for the good deed of making sure thousands of families in need enjoy their Christmas with plenty of food in 2018!
