Charity Darts tournament in Chicago

On February 3, 2016, the local branch of Serbs for Serbs in Chicago organized for the first time a Darts Tournament. The tournament sparked a large amount of interest since it was the first of its kind in the area. Serbs for Serbs held the event at the Sv Nikola church hall in Brookfield, Illinois. Like the Trojka Iz Bloka project, the idea of the darts tournament was to gather friends, family and donors together to have fun and raise money for impoverished Serbian families.

The tournament drew in 30 competitors with the top prize going to Ivica Lazic of Lyons, Illinois and second place went to 12 year old Mihailo Josipovic of Brookfield, Illinois.

Through tournament registration, shirts sales and snacks sales, we were able to raise $718 this evening. For everyone in attendance, the event was a great success, and they all expressed a desire to have a similar tournament every month! 

We will see how we can accommodate these requests, but what is certain is that the combination of sporting events and fundraising is a clear success for impoverished Serbian families. Chicago will continue to do its part to help whenever possible.
