Sport for a noble cause: Office Depot Charity Cup

Office Depot Charity Cup

Together with other 10 companies fromCluj-Napoca, we managed this year to make the children of AFR (Asociația Familia Regăsită) happy. The Office Depot Football & Tennis Charity Cup 2012 has reached its forth edition and it’s being organized in order to raise money for the underprivileged children in the Cluj community. This edition took place between 20-21 October at Baza Sportivă „Unirea” in Mănăștur/Făget. We gathered together that beautiful Saturday morning to watch together football and tennis games, to have fun and, of course, to help the wonderful children of AFR.

The football and tennis competitions were fierce, and the players fought for each ball. The footbal championship was won by the Betfair team who dramatically defeated the Genpact team after penalties. Matyas Matyas from Fortech won the tennis competition for the second year in a row. To successfully close the event, on Sunday, before the grand football finale, we organized a friendly match between the children of AFR and a team made up of volunteer players from the participating teams. The result was very motivating for the children, who beat the adults 3-1.

We are already planning next year’s campaign and we hope to meet again our friends from other companies together with whom we’ve raised over 2000 EUR. See you in 2013!
