Spend an Afternoon with Basketball Star Danilo Gallinari
Meet Italian basketball star Danilo Gallinari at the 'We Playground Together' event that will take place on Sunday July 21, 2019 in Viale Sarca, Milan, Italy.
This auction includes two VIP tickets to enjoy the event from some of the best seats. You will also have the chance to meet Gallinari and take photos with the Italian basketball champion!
Following last year's success, 'We Playground Together' is back for another edition. The project, set up with the support of Milan's City Councillor for Sport,Turism and Quality of Life, promotes social integration through sport and plans to requalify the large sporting area in Viale Sarca that includes a basketball court and 5-a-side football pitch.
The facility will be fully rennovated with Mapei resin flooring personlized with the creative flair of Centro Stile di Garage Italia; new generation equipment will replace old basketball nets and scoreboards and even the football pitch will be given an overhaul with a restyling of the goalposts and surface. In addition, the benches will be replaced to make space for the young (and old) residents who will have a chance to share their love of sport with other members of the community.
The “We Playground Together” initiative aims to make street basketball more widespread, fun and accessible to all. The mission is to redevelop local basketball courts, some of which are no longer in use, in order to create sites that can welcome thousands of fans and that everyone can enjoy.
Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus, founded in 2005, operates in communities on the outskirts of large Italian cities.
The foundation's objective is to support young people living in challenging economic and social situations, using sports as an instrument of psychological-pedagogical support.
All the projects promoted by the foundation include the presence of educators and psychologists in the field in order to make sports activities a useful tool for reaching educational objectives.
Fondazione Laureus has created a network of area partners—including sports associations, schools, and third sector organizations—with which it creates sports-educational programs geared for young people through various initiatives. These initiatives create a community for helping children and youth in need.
Laureus guarantees the training of all coaches and social workers involved.
Since 2005, Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus has obtained the following results: over 14 projects started up in Milan, Naples, Rome, Bari, Catania and Bologna; over 3,000 children supported; over 20 different sports activities; approximately 30 sports associations; over 20 schools and 20 third sector organizations involved; and 18 “sports legends” who support Laureus Italy initiatives.
Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus plans, implements, monitors and directly evaluates all the projects through its staff made up of social educators, sports psychologists and project managers.
