Demy, Dr. Clown, and AS Christened Their Joint Calendar

Representatives of AS Trenčín, the House of Social Services ‘Demy’, and Dr. Clown Foundation christened their joint calendar.

The christening took place in Magnus Center Trenčín on Thursday evening. The representatives of AS Trenčín, the House of Social Services ‘Demy’, and Dr. Clown Foundation together with their official guests christened the calendar ‘AS Trenčín 2009’.

The photo taking took place in early August. The AS players, the children from Demy, and clowns stood as models. The fans contributed as well. The atmosphere of that day was very friendly. The children were trying to act as sportsmen whereas the players were watching over them and patiently answered their questions about football. A lot of interesting pictures were made. They became a basic material for a calendar symbolizing connections between the world of top sportsmen and handicapped children.

Another meeting of the children with the players followed on Thursday, October 9. The ‘old friends’ met to christen their joint calendar in Magnus Center. The official program started shortly after 6 pm. The attending guests returned to the pleasant atmosphere of the photo taking. Jacques van der Linden, the founder of Dr. Clown Foundation explained that when he started his business in Slovakia, he wanted to do something noble-minded for its inhabitants. This was the main motive for establishing a foundation raising funds to support theatrical performances in social and other specialized institutions for handicapped children. Tibor Gavenda, the director of Demy then confirmed that these shows were very popular with the children.

The program followed by the submission of a symbolical check on SKK 40.000,00 to the foundation by the general manager of the club Róbert Rybníček. This amount has been collected by the players, supporting team, and management of AS Trenčín. The flashpoint of the evening was the christening itself. The common work had, unusually, three godparents. The captain of AS Lubor Knapp, the popular mime Vladimír Kulíšek, but mainly Miška from the House of Social Services ‘Demy’ came in for a long-lasting applause on the podium. Instead of the champagne, red clown noses were used for the christening ceremony. The applause continued long after a bunch of red noses was spilled onto the calendar. Right after the ceremony, Miška took one of the calendars and was browsing it long after the official program was over.

The calendar is for sale from October 10 and it is accessible in many sale points in Trenčín. Its price is SKK 150,00. All proceeds collected from the sale will be donated to Dr. Clown Foundation.

The sale points of the calendar:

Tabak Lauko (Mierové námestie – the main square), KIC (Sládkovičova Street), the secretariat of AS Trenčín (the Sports Hall), the cash desks during the home games of AS, the tobacco shops Bresman in MAX, Kaufland, DV Center, Rozkvet, Tesco, Magnus, and Úspech.
