Balkrishna Industries Ltd(BKT) has teamed up with Paolo Rossi, the player who propelled Italy to World Cup victory in 1982 with his Golden Boot-earning six tournament goals, to raise funds for charity. He was a guest of honour at a gala solidarity dinner organised by BKT in Bologna on November 9, 2018.
On this occasion, Pablito donated three autographed shirts with the number 20 and the 82 World Cup logo. The shirts were auctioned, and all guests present competed in an amazing auction full of emotions, bidding higher and higher to the very last.
A total of € 7,700 was raised this way. BKT decided to double the amount in order to wholeheartedly support Parada Italia’s initiatives to uplift children living in the streets of Bucarest in considerably difficult and discomfortable conditions.
BKT is continuously engaged in supporting initiatives for charity worldwide which include projects in the medical and educational fields in India, financial support to farmers hit by the worst drought ever in Australia etc., the company says in a Press release.
