More than half a thousand people participated in the sixth day of solidarity, which has had the collaboration of more than 50 local companies and entities

The Torres Family Foundation has celebrated this Saturday, November 30, in the winery of Pacs del Penedès, the sixth edition of the charity day ‘Get involved with La Marató’, which has collected 8,612 euros thanks to the contribution of more than 500 participants. As every year, the Foundation will double the amount collected and allocate a total of 17,224 euros to La Marató de TV3 for the research on minority diseases.

Mireia Torres, President of the Torres Family Foundation, says: “We want to thank all the participants for supporting this solidarity initiative, the USOC for their generous contribution and for the volunteers and collaborating companies who, with their invaluable and selfless collaboration, have contributed to the success of this day for the benefit of La Marató de TV3.”

The good weather, the incomparable environment and the cozy space of the visitor center, with the garden at the foot of the vineyard, have come together in the celebration of this new edition, which has been made possible by the collaboration of 50 volunteers and more than 50 companies and entities in the region. Throughout the day, participants enjoyed various gourmet activities, such as blind tapas, Iberian, cheese or sushi pairings, or popular food, all with great participation.

The novelty this year has been the activity ‘Make your own wine’ by the cellar Jean Leon, which has also been a success. Scheduled outdoor activities, such as the electric scooter route between the vineyards, as well as the various crafts and children’s activities to introduce the little ones to the world of vineyards, have exhausted the places.

The cultural and musical performances were also well received, starring the band of the M. Dolors Calvet Municipal School of Music, the Country Social Club Vilafranca, the Swing Vilafranca Group and the Rovell d’Ou children’s group, in addition of the performances of the Xicots and the Falcons of Vilafranca. The end of the day was a chocolate and a prize draw among all the participants.
