Volleyball celebrities Metodi Ananiev, Simeon Alexandrov and Georgi Manchev joined Holiday Heroes’ “Sport with a Mission” initiative
Last Saturday (July 18th) the Holiday Heroes foundation kicked off their charity sports season with a round of beach volleyball matches. The event was held as part of the “Sports with a mission series”. Hosted by Sport Volley Mania playgrounds in the town of Bozhurishte, the competition welcomed 12 teams of socially responsible businesses in support of Holiday Heroes’ humane effort.
Just before the actual playoff, Bulgarian volleyball legends Metodi Ananiev and Simeon Alexandrov (who also mentored the participants) played a demo match side by side Georgi Manchev (who was a referee in our championship) and Bozhurishte’s mayor Asparuh Asparuhov.
Nestlѐ’s team proved best. They managed to get hold of the gold under the helpful instruction of Simeon Alexandrov. Right Rental came second, coached by Metodi Ananiev. The third place was for Lactima, lead by Georgi Valov, followed by yet another team guided by Simeon Alexandrov—that of VMware Bulgaria.
Every penny raised through the games will go to fund Holiday Heroes’ forthcoming Christmas 2015 drive.
