On Thursday, April 30, 2015, the first “Trojka iz bloka” was successfully held in Uzice. 100 shooters entered for the tournament, and about 500 people came to the Big Park at 1 o’clock to show the Milicevic family from the village of Dreznik that they are not alone. With the help of the proud sponsors, both donors and participants, as well as the contributions from the collection box at the charity after party at Ribolovac club, the total amount of 122,770 RSD was raised. The residents of Uzice have shown that they have a big heart!

At the very beginning of the tournament, the spectators were addressed by Mladen Matijasevic, the sports-charity “Trojka iz bloka” project manager, and Jovanka Lucic, on behalf of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs.

After the welcome speeches, the student of the Gymnasium of Uzice, Anica Cvetkovic, sang the national anthem of Serbia, “Boze pravde”, and the tournament was officially opened with shots by the oldest children in the Milicevic family, Marko (14) and Marina (12). The best reward for everybody present and the Milicevic family as well was people getting together and enjoying the great atmosphere on the beautiful day at the courts in the Big Park.

Those who ensured great atmosphere at the tournament were the famous Belgrade rappers Cobran and Mlata from the rap group Sick Touch, Gazda Paja, Vojke, Palke and DJ Buraz from the Zvezde Grajma group, and also Jovan and Bogdan from the FTP group. During the tournament, DJ Sale L from THC la Familia, who is also the official DJ of the “Trojka iz bloka,” was in charge of the music. There was music for different tastes, and people stayed until the very end of the tournament, enjoying the great music and sporting spirit. The Play Off Basketball Club brought their cadets to collectively take part in the tournament, and “Radoje Ljubicic” Technical High School sent their teacher and numerous students to shoot three-pointers and support their fellow citizens. The old and the young enjoyed themselves at the courts on the bank of the river Djetinja. TV crew of the most popular Uzice television TV 5, and the crew of the show “This is Serbia” from Radio Television of Serbia attended the event, and enabled wider audience to feel the positive energy at the tournament. Radio Luna Uzice also sent their crew, and just like TV5, in the days preceding the “Trojka iz bloka,” they had been inviting people of good will to join the action of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs.
