First Trojka tournament in Smederevska Palanka!

On Saturday, June 11, the sports-charity project Trojka iz Bloka was held for the first time in Smederevska Palanka. There were over 80 participants, raising 11,037 Dinars, and the total sum raised at the tournament was 82,447 Dinars! The tournament had begun to live a month before the ceremonial opening – first it had been announced by the concert of KUDAbrasevic, and on the occasion 23,500 Dinars had been raised from selling the tickets, and then humane rock musicians from Palankabands, Komandosi and Nekudim, together with the band from Obrenovac, U zmajevom gnezdu, had raised 18,910 Dinars at a charity concert!


The strength of united Palanka will be directed towards helping an underprivileged family from this gentle area, and you will be informed about all the details on the Trojka iz Bloka site. Not long ago, we helped the eight-member Todorovic family from the village Vodice near Smederevska Palanka, and the youngest Todorovics were our special guests at the first tournament in Palanaka!




Jovan, Luka, and Stefan were with us at the tournament, shooting 3-pointers, and they could not hide delight at seeing so many people who gathered with great love and care to help their neighbors! Everybody was cheerful, and the whole event was recorded by a local TV station TV Jasenica showing to the world the picture of people united in fight against injustice and poverty!


Three proud sponsors supported the tournament with 7,000 Dinars each – Srdjan color, Rudnik D.O.O and DMINVEST, and one with 8,000 Dinars – Primasped. The total of 29,000 Dinars! 


The event had been very well promoted, so many people had heard about the mission of helping the Todorovics, and the people who had done a great job promoting it were Palanka High School and the principal Dragan Jokovic and intellectual and sporting elite of Smederevska Palanka – Jovica Radisavljevic, Dusan Gajic, Nenad Stanojevic, basketball player of KK “Konstantin” from Nis, Goran Ostojic, and football player of FC “Anzi” from Makhachkala. All this resulted in a great tournament, which was technically supported by KK “Mladost” and a local rock café “Balkan”.


The best among the humane “Trojka” shooters were Vladimir Zarkovic with 20 3-pointers, Djordje Vejnovic, 19, and Jovan Vukovic, with 17 shots.


The gathered people were entertained by Gazda Paja and Ujka Djordje, and that is how another Trojka iz Bloka spectacle was rounded off! Humaneness, sport, and fun once again showed seemingly insoluble problems can be solved!  


True winners were the youngest Todorovics, who cheered and rooted for the participants, helped collecting balls and went home full of impressions, having the best day of their lives! You cannot put a price on a child’s smile and everything we have done so far has been for that reward! We will keep helping the Todorovics and other underprivileged families, and we will regularly inform the public about all our activities on our site! Children are our future! Be a part of the Trojka iz Bloka!
