congatec AG sponsors the Bayerwald Mixed Volleyball Tournament

Lower Bavaria's largest open-air volleyball tournament "Bayerwald Mixed" was sponsored by congatec AG this year. The event yielded five thousand euros for aid to flood victims.

A volleyball tournament on behalf of flood victims: at the Bayerwald-Mixed in Trautmannsdorf, Germany  the organisers of the event collected donations from SG Saldenburg for flood victims. "It was sort of a queasy feeling – here we were playing volleyball in the sunshine, and only a few kilometres away in Passau and Deggendorf, people were struggling against the mud and even fighting for their existence," says Christian Riesinger of the SG Saldenburg team. This is why the game organisers set up a "Flood Cow" and requested the 300 participants as well as the audience to donate money for the PNP Fluthilfe [Flood Aid]. As the bovine money box was opened, the organisers were overwhelmed: 2,500 euros had been collected!

A Bayerwald-Mixed sponsor, the Deggendorf company congatec AG, was likewise impressed by the generous donations. In response, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of congatec AG, Heinz Iglhaut, spontaneously doubled the donation sum to 5,000 euros.
