In collaboration with the unique agency in Europe, dealing with trading cards and memorabilia, Trace ‘n Chase, a silent auction will be held for the first time, in which items of golf legends such as Gary Player, Tiger Woods, Roy Mcllroy and world-class athletes, including NBA Finals Champion & MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, NFL player Tom Brady and tennis player Serena Williams will be auctioned.
The shipping community is expected for another year to “embrace” and actively support the event’s good cause, as during the ceremony participants will have the opportunity to directly contribute with their desired amount at the specially designed area. The total amount to be collected will be given to the Non-Profit Organization KARKINAKI, which claims intervention in the effort of stopping Childhood and adolescent cancer being a taboo issue, but also finding as many allies as possible so that every child who suffers from cancer has equal access to high-quality hospitalization, effective treatment and, ultimately, the right to life.
