Spanning over several months of team efforts and hard work, ŠKODA Trainees organized the most exciting event of the Programme: The Ball – a night full of amazing performances, fun and dancing! This year’s theme of the Ball was “Future of ŠKODA” to highlight the brand’s future, driven by digitalization, automation and robots!
Still, just as technology helps us to improve our lives, we also wanted to do the same. That is why for this year, the ball was organized to support not one, but two charitable organizations for the first time in the Ball’s history: Centrum 83 and Centrum pro Všechny.
Centrum 83 is an organization supporting people having reduced self-sufficiency due to mental or combined disability. Centrum pro Všechny is a family center that focuses on integrating of leisure activities into everyone’s lives. Teaming up with them was what made this event special – thanks also to a delightfully romantic Romeo & Juliet re-enactment put on by Centrum 83.
People of all kind and ŠKODA employees joined this evening taking the audience toll to nearly 250 people: 85,000 CZK were collected for Centrum 83 and Centrum pro Všechny. Following the legacy of traditional Czech balls, a Tombola was arranged for guests to participate in, with the chance to win fun gifts, including a drone and travel vouchers awarded from Odbory KOVO – our workers union.
The night went by with live music from Groove Harmony, and DJ Hubkov fueled the dance part of the night while everybody got drinks served from a robot. The main highlight? An amazing light acrobatics performance, which left everyone in awe!
Nonetheless, the best part of the night was the one made by all the guests, who danced to the beats and had fun with us. Thanks everyone for participating! And don’t worry, if you missed this Trainee Ball, you can join this night of grandeur next year, we can’t wait!
