JLL raised 16.000 eur for Schools Of Life Project
Children from village Jalovik will finally get a kindergarten, thanks to JLL Charity Tennis Tournament held yesterday at TC Gemax in Belgrade, Serbia.
We are happy to share with you some great news from Belgrade, Serbia: JLL Charity Tennis Tournament, held yesterday at TC Gemax, raised EUR 16.000,00 (RSD 1.671.000,00) for “Schools of Life – Together for Childhood” project! Big thanks to JLL, the host of the event, and to all the participants, sponsors and people of good will for helping and supporting this important project!
The funds will be used to start the construction of a kindergarten in Jalovik, Municipality of Vladimirci. There are more than 50 children from this small village in western Serbia who are not included in preschool education program. We decided to change it for the better.
The municipality has already planned to start with the construction works on the kindergarten in Jalovik, but unfortunately, they did not have enough funds to cover the full implementation of this project. Therefore, JLL as one of the leading firms in commercial real estate services, together with Novak Djokovic Foundation, hosted this charity event. Our goal was to help these children finally get a place to learn and play, not too far from their homes.
Representatives of the companies: KPMG, GTC, Knjaz Milos, MPC Properties, SBB, Erste Bank, Sportvision, Harrisons Solicitors, Law firm Karanovic Nikolic, Banca Intesa, TRS, Verano motors, Victoria Group, Airport City, Vip Mobile, Babolat, K-Swiss and JLL, competed in the tournament, showing great corporate initiative to assess and take responsibility for the effects on social welfare here in Serbia. They surely had a great time at the tennis courts, as well.
Charity Party followed the tournament, with the live auction and lottery funded by sponsors: Sportvision, Tikveš, XYZ Premium Fashion Store, Babolat, Falkensteiner Hotel Stara Planina, K-Swiss, Hyatt Regency Belgrade, Verano motors, Zira Hotel and TRS. The event host was Dejan Pantelic. Companies Tikveš, BIP and Ipanema Food organized the catering. Company Aqua Viva helped us with the catering and a money donation.
Many celebrities in the sports, music and business core attended the event. Some of them were popular singer Haris Džinović and former football player Savo Milošević, including CEOs of leading international and local companies. The guests also enjoyed live performance of Bojana Stamenov.
JLL, the international advisory company is famous for organizing charity events and tournaments around the world. They wish to make charity tennis tournaments in Belgrade a tradition. The funds raised at these events will go to charities to help the most vulnerable.
