On 20 August, on the anniversary of the second Independence Day of the Republic of Estonia, Olympic Casino arranged a charitable party for Konstantin Pätsi Vabaõhukool in Tallinn to support the children affected with pulmonary disease. At the party, Valdek Berendsen, headmaster of Vabaõhukool received a 10 525 EEK cheque meant for obtaining teaching materials for the beginning school year.
“Main share of the support money is collected through charitable jackpot started during Olympic Casino’s project “Benefaction In Every Bet” which raises money from every bet made on Olympic Casino’s slot machines,” said Marje Braunbrück, marketing manager of Olympic Casino. “In addition to charitable jackpot, all visitors of the charitable party Great Charitable Summer Berry Merry could make their contribution for children affected with pulmonary disease by buying charity lottery tickets sold at the party.” According to the words of Marje Braunbrück, sold 10-kroons lottery tickets added more than 2500 EEK to jackpot.

According to the words of Valdek Berendsen, headmaster of Konstantin Pätsi Vabaõhukool, donated sum shall be mainly spent on for buying new blackboard and the rest of it will be used for buying teaching materials and other necessary articles. “Recent fire in our school perished furnishings in one of school’s classroom,” said Berendsen. Classroom has been restored for today but school has not enough resources for buying new furnishings. “And here Olympic Casino came to help us and contacted us through Ministry of Education.” Berendsen added in his joy over successful co-operation. “Now the studies can make their normal begin again in September.”

On the Charitable Berry Merry, Natalie Kechek performed with an exclusive violin show. Guests gave a tumultuous applause to a surprise artist, 35-kilograms weighing spotted rock snake Edgar. Braver guests could try to wear the snake around their necks like a boa. Then models wearing berry and flower costumes offered delight to the eye at the Charitable Berry Merry.

Charitable jackpot is only one element in the larger project “Benefaction In Every Bet” that was started by Olympic Casino in the beginning of the tenth business year of the company.
