Our First Shoe Store Event

We had our first event yesterday for Vincent Shoe Store Austria. Down Syndrome Austria had organized a soccer tournament to collect money for the new Kompetenz Center that will break ground in 2008. It is a place where people with DS can come to learn, work, live or just hang out. It is alsoa  place where parents can receive important information and they also offer different therapies etc. People with 46 chromosomes are also welcome 😉

So, Bookie (yesterday’s Birthday boy) had organized a table for us there, and in the evening it was dinner and entertainment. It was really nice. Many of our friends also came and we had a lot of fun. I don’t know yet how much money they raised, but it was a lot of people there. There were oldstar soccer players from Graz, Wien, Bayern Muenchen along with teams made up of famous people and doctors etc. The Vincent Shoe Store team (none of us played) ended up in the final, so I don’t think anyone who was there missed that Vincent Shoe Store will open on September 1. Unfortunately, and stupidly enough, Bookie or I did not take any pics all day. So no pics from yesterday…
