The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), together with event sponsor Palmer Capital organised a charity softball tournament on behalf of  the Zajíc Foundation, a charity supporting children with autism spectrum disorders based in Libeň, Prague 8. 
The proceeds from the event will fund the set-up of group facility care services to assist for children from two years old until they go to school.
Specifically, the raised money will go towards the reconstruction of the children’s centre. A total of eight teams from the real estate industry participated in the fundraiser and the total amount raised was CZK150,000.

 “As the Global Institution for property and construction matters, the project which the Zajic Foundation was hoping to fund, fell close to our hearts. We now look forward to realising the project with them in the near future. This is the fourth annual softball charity event we have organised in the Czech Republic and after rescheduling due to the flooding in Troja, were happy the event could finally go ahead,” says Stuart Jordan, Head of Board, RICS Czech Republic.

“For us as property fund managers, the ZAJÍC Project under the auspices of APLA is the right investment thanks to which the centre for children with autism spectrum disorders will be refurbished. We are happy to have been able to participate in the fundraising softball tournament, helping people suffering from autism to better manage their professional and family lives in the process.”

RICS (The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), an independent professional body founded in 1868, has been committed to setting and upholding the highest standards of excellence and integrity within the real estate and construction sector. In the Czech Republic there are 114 members part of a global membership base of 100,000 professionals in more than 100 countries all over the world.
