Our Perfact Christmas Party took place at Glanerbrook in Geleen this year, during an ice hockey game of the Snackpoint Eaters. The game was extra special this time as we linked our name to the Teddy Bear Toss, in aid of local charity Ik doe mee foundation. It was a cold, but very enjoyable evening!
The Snackpoint Eaters played the Chiefs from Leuven and won brilliantly, scoring 9-0. After the first goal, fans and visitors were invited to throw their teddy bears and other cuddly toys onto the ice. These will be donated to the hospitals in Heerlen and Sittard-Geleen. The proceeds of the evening will benefit Ik doe mee; this foundation enables less fortunate families with children within the municipality of Sittard-Geleen to buy Christmas presents or go to an amusement park for a day.
“As a Euroregionally operating company that has its origins in Munstergeleen, we think it is important to do a local social contribution as well. Although we are already an annual sponsor of the Snackpoint Eaters, we thought this Teddy Bear Toss would be an extra nice opportunity,” said Coppe Sturmans, director Perfact Group.
