Valter Baldaccini Memorial

The press conference for the presentation of the Valter Baldaccini was held today, September 21st, at UMBRAGROUP. This is an idea of Sir's President, Gino Sirci who is very sensitive to charitable causes and organized this match in honor of Valter Baldaccini. The event proceeds will be donated entirely to the Valter Baldaccini Foundation. The event will be held at the Pala Barton of Perugia Tuesday, September 25th at 20:30 with the match between Sir Safety Conad Perugia and Emma Villas Siena. The world of sport and that of solidarity and ethics come unite under the name of Valter Baldaccini, a visionary entrepreneur and Father Founder of UMBRAGROUP.

"Among the ongoing projects of the Foundation" states Sirci, President of SIR Safety Umbria Volley Perugia "I am deeply committed to select a program in our territory, supporting the “Family and Work” project promoted by the Diocesan Caritas of Foligno in support of families in difficulty in the local community. Our goal is to sponsor the whole project ".

Since last year, this initiative has helped establish ten job grants for families in difficulty. The work paths have allowed men, women and families in difficulty to have a real opportunity for social redemption and rediscovered dignity.

This year "Family and Work", which saw the Municipality of Foligno added to its partners, was renewed with ten other job grants. Beatrice Baldaccini, President of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation, shares her thoughts from the United States: "I really want to send my heartfelt thanks to President Sirci and SIR Safety Umbria Volley Perugia for this precious opportunity. At a time like today's, in which the media tends to emphasize negative events, concrete gestures like this, of support for those who find themselves in difficulty, show that the spirit of solidarity exists and must be shared to keep it passionately alive. Thanks also to all the people who will come to see the game and help make the Family and Work Project even more important and rigorous in our Umbrian territory ".

Antonio Baldaccini, CEO & President UMBRAGROUP, emphasizes that "this initiative by SIR Safety Umbria Volley Perugia surprised us and again encouraged UMBRAGROUP to invest in volleyball, even though a few weeks ago, the board had decided to discontinue its support. Having champions playing in honor of my father excites me and knowing that they are doing it for the needy of our community makes me proud. This gesture highlights a common value between UMBRAGROUP and SIR SAFETY: social responsibility and ethics in one's profession. It is precisely for this reason that our company has decided to reconfirm the partnership between UMBRAGROUP - SIR for the 2018/2019 season. I firmly believe in the strength of the team, because, to use a phrase by Filippo Clerici, “ alone you go faster but together you go farther ".
