More than 28 teams, 200 participants, 20 charities and ... all of them are winners!
Last weekend, over 200 hockey players competed with all their heart, talent and perseverance to win an extra financial contribution for their charities. We would like to introduce you to all these wonderful initiatives. The initiatives were created through dialogue between young and old(er) entrepreneurs. Some of them organized on an international level, others just recently started locally. But one thing is certain: each and every one of them deserve our attention and appreciation!
