On Saturday, November 24th, the 6th annual SVOBODA & WILLIAMS CUP charity futsal tournament took place in Aréna Sparta – Podvinný Mlýn. A total of 12 teams representing the leading companies from the world of real estate competed to win the the Svoboda & Williams challenge cup. The winner this year is the CPI Property Group's team. The tournament raised CZK 252,832 in support of the Tereza Maxová Foundation.

Thanks to the voluntary contributions from the participating companies and profits from the sale of tickets to the charity raffle, this year's SVOBODA & WILLIAMS CUP managed to raise a record CZK 252,832. The entire amount will go to the Tereza Maxová Foundation, which helps disadvantaged and abandoned children and enables them to lead healthy and safe lives in a family environment.
The Tereza Maxová Foundation used last year's proceeds to support the HoSt Home Start ČR non-profit organization, whose goal is to create a healthy home environment for children and families through regular visits by their team of volunteers and therapists.
Like last year, the SVOBODA & WILLIAMS CUP organizers managed to create a pleasant social event for the whole family. Tučňákov, a kindergarden working with a unique multisensory program for kids, created fun activities for children. Prague Catering prepared refreshments for the players and fans, who could take part in a charity raffle. Its main prizes were a voucher for renting a car for the weekend from the Invelt company, two vouchers for accommodation for two nights in an apartment in Masarykova30 in Brno, and a voucher for a romantic stay at the Dobříš Chateau.
