Arcona Capital rows to victory in drum-beating Dragon Boat Charity Race
The team of Arcona Capital, an independent manager of property funds and asset manager of entrusted assets / properties in the markets of Central Europe, defended its previous year’s victory in the Dragon Boat Charity Race hosted by CBRE. The race was held on the Vltava river at the Císařská Louka area and the winning team managed to raise funds worth 15,000 CZK for projects of the non-profit organizations Dobrý Anděl and Plan International, which help sick, at risk and disadvantaged children in the Czech Republic and abroad.
“This year´s race was once again a great sporting and social event. We are pleased with the wonderful level of participation and fantastic atmosphere, where natural competition and the pursuit of winning blended with the motivation of all participants to benefit a good cause,” said Zbyněk Laube, Head of Asset and Development Management CEE of Arcona Capital. “Our team’s defence of its victory demonstrates the ability of the Arcona Capital team to fight for victory and never give up. Dragons are a symbol of good luck in Asian mythology, and we are delighted to be able to share some of that with those who have not been so lucky in life themselves.”
