Since the end of 2006, the Christoph Metzelder Foundation has been committed to helping socially disadvantaged children in Germany. Regardless of their background and social environment, these children and young people should be able to freely develop their talents and strengths, graduate from school and successfully start their (professional) lives – that is the goal of the Metzelder Foundation.
Founded by former national soccer player Christoph Metzelder, the foundation focuses increasingly on integrating the areas of “education” and “training” and aims to accompany young people through school and training over a period of up to 5 years with homework support and learning assistance (“fit for future”). Nationwide, the Metzelder Foundation supports up to 10,000 children and young people 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 with the words: “I am delighted that so many friends and supporters have found their way to Potsdam and contributed to the sensational success of donations in favor of the project work of my foundation.”
Charity events are held annually 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.
To continue supporting the success of the foundation, Skypak decided to contribute and provided one of our popular Barrique Trolleys for auction. The Barrique Trolley was auctioned for 3800€. The proceeds will be donated to the Christoph Metzelder Foundation.
More information about the Metzelder Foundation and its projects can be found here.
