On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary Gala, Panattoni together with the Kozminski University Development Foundation organised a charity auction "People&Passion". The auction was a success, raising close to PLN 250,000. The proceeds will be allocated to academic scholarships for talented young people from countries where Panattoni operates, as well as from Ukraine.
Within the "People&Passion" auction, from 19 to 29 October, it was possible to bid for various items and experiences on the Allegro Charity platform, i.e. Executive MBA studies, tickets for Wimbledon 2024 matches, an invitation to the Ice Hockey World Championships final in Prague, a T-shirt signed by Iga Świątek, a golf club signed by Adrian Meronek, a tennis racket signed by Hubert Hurkacz, a sports jersey and jams by Robert Lewandowski, invitations to the Panattoni box for cultural or sporting events at the PGE National Stadium, a tour of Radio 357 in the company of Kuba Strzyczkowski and participation in the "Firmament" programme by Jarosław Sroka. The online auction brought in PLN 130,153.
A highlight of the 10th anniversary Panattoni Gala was the stationary auction led by actor Maciej Stuhr. Participants competed in generous financial battles, including for tickets to the opening match of London's Wimbledon 2024, for tickets to see the New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls play in the NBA league playoffs at New York's Madison Square Garden in January 2024 and for a four-day invitation to the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Bahrain at the end of February/beginning of March 2024. The stationary auction raised nearly EUR 26,000.
- There is no philanthropy without business, and business without philanthropy loses its flavour. Passion is the foundation of success, but it is also the glue that binds together many fields, sport, art, science and business. When we initiated this year's People&Passion charity auction, we wanted to share our passion for helping. We invited the Kozminski University Development Foundation to co-organise the auction. All proceeds from the auction will go towards scholarships for the most talented young people from the countries where Panattoni operates and from Ukraine - says Robert Dobrzycki CEO and co-owner of Panattoni.
- The goal of the Kozminski University Development Foundation is to link the worlds of science and business by supporting entrepreneurial attitudes among young people, helping them acquire knowledge and develop their skills. That is why we sincerely thank all the bidders who, through their generosity, made it possible for us to create dedicated scientific scholarships, which will become a spark for the further development of talented young people," says Dr Sylwia Hałas-Dej, President of the Kozminski University Development Foundation, Dean of the Centre for Consultancy and Management Education.
