Yesterday afternoon the Barbarians' 7-a-side charity tournament, "MarwAID 2: Save the Marwan," was held at Si De Park. The event proved a success, as over 25,000 RMB was raised and some excellent football was displayed.
A big thank you to all who participated and donated money at the event, as well as to those who donated their time and energy to help organize it.
We would also like to thank all of our fellow IFFC Teams for joining us in this effort and donating so generously. Forbidden City and Vikings in particular went above and beyond in their support.
A few individual thanks go out as well:
- To Luis, for your generous prize donations, for sorting out the electricity, and for chopping the fruit;
- To Chris, for driving the booze around;
- To Kevin, for organizing the tournament;
- To John and Colin, for running the raffles;
- To Aziz, Tarek, Craig, Carlos and Alastair, for working the bar;
- To Max and his mum for their delicious food;
And to everyone else we forgot to mention who helped out.
Next event to follow soon!
