Stojic the winner of the "Trojka iz bloka"

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, in cooperation with the Basketball Association of Serbia, held its second annual “Trojka iz bloka” tournament. The fundraiser which took place on June 1st at the Laza Kostic Elementary School in New Belgrade, was organized to raise money for the construction of ten bathrooms for struggling families in Serbia.

Over one thousand spectators turned out to cheer on more than two hundred participants. The tournament was officially opened by the Vice-president of the Basketball Association of Serbia, Dejan Tomasevic, Deputy Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Affairs, Vladimir Pesic, and the former captain of the Serbian National Volleyball Team, Bojan Janic.

The tournament winner was Milan Stojic, who drained eighteen three-pointers. Runners-up were: Jovan Dragas (16 baskets) and Nemanja Cvijetic (15 baskets).

Serbs for Serbs managed to raise 355.910 dinars for the bathroom project, thanks to the great number of participants, sponsors and donors of this charity event. 

One of the main organizers of the tournament, also a member of Serbs for Serbs, Milos Golic, offered his impressions of the competition. “I am very satisfied with the number of participants, and the support from the sponsors and famous culture and sport personalities. I am particularly pleased with the promise made by the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Affairs that Serbia will help realize the completion of this charitable initiative next year.”

The next “Trojka iz bloka” will be held in Kragujevac (for the first time) on June 16th.
