Metzelder Foundation: Skypak sponsors Barrique Trolley
Since the end of 2006, the Christoph Metzelder Foundation has been committed to helping socially disadvantaged children in Germany. Irrespective of their origin and social environment, these children and teenagers are to develop their talents and strengths freely, graduate from school and successfully start their (professional) lives – this is the objective of the Metzelder Foundation.
The foundation established by the former national soccer player, Christoph Metzelder, focuses more and more on the integration of the areas „education“ and “ apprenticeship“ and wants to accompany teenagers through school and apprenticeship over a period of up to 5 years with homework supervision and learning assistance („fit for future“). Across Germany, the Metzelder Foundation supports up to 10,000 children and teenagers every day in almost 30 projects.
Christoph Metzelder, the host, was delighted that so many guests had come to support the foundation and opened the evening by saying: „I am very pleased that so many friends and sponsors have found their way to Potsdam and have contributed to the sensational success of the donations for the benefit of my foundation’s project work.“
Annual charity events are held to support the foundation, including this year’s Golf Charity Cup and Pre-Golf Gala in Potsdam, which was also attended by Skypak founder Peter Jorge Fischer and business partner André Franzmann. Numerous other entrepreneurs, celebrities and friends of the foundation accepted Christoph Metzelder’s invitation.
In order to continue supporting the success of the foundation, Skypak decided to contribute a part and made one of our popular Barrique Trolleys available for auction. The Barrique Trolley was auctioned for 3800€. The proceeds will be donated to the Christoph Metzelder Foundation.
