AtTheMatch sign up as PR and Events Partner for Heart4More Foundation Fundraising Dinner
The January transfer window might have shut, but that hasn’t stopped AtTheMatch from making a huge signing this season!
We are extremely delighted to announce we will be linking up with health and empowerment charity the Heart4More Foundation, as their official PR & Events Partner for their upcoming Fundraising Dinner on Sunday 1st May.
The Heart4More Foundation was set up in February 2014 by former professional footballer Tobi Alabi, whose career was cut short aged just 19 following a cardiac arrest on the field of play.
In a short space of time Tobi had first a heart monitor implanted before a pacemaker was fitted following a subsequent, and equally life-threatening, collapse at home.
Since then however, Tobi has used his personal experience to benefit those around him from a health and empowerment perspective.
The Foundation was set up with the aims to work with the local communities and prominent organisations within the football, business and sport industries to raise awareness of life-threatening heart conditions and raise aspirations within young people, also.
The former Millwall striker’s hard work has seen the Foundation progress rapidly in a short space of time, with close friend and Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin the sole ambassador, who uses his profile to help raise funds and awareness of the Foundation’s activites.
On Sunday 1st May this year, the Foundation will be hosting their second annual fundraising dinner, and have enlisted the help of AtTheMatch.
Through this unique partnership, AtTheMatch will become the Foundation’s one-stop port of call for the PR and management in the lead up to, during and after the event.
Of the exciting partnership, Heart4More founder Tobi Alabi said: “I’m very excited to sign up with AtTheMatch to come on board as our PR and Events Partner for our fundraising dinner. After I met with the team I only needed 20 minutes to make up my mind.
“I’m confident it will be a successful event that will culminate in an equally successful and ongoing relationship thereafter.”
AtTheMatch founder Simon Maurer said: “Once I was made aware of Tobi’s story I had to meet him. He’s a passionate and inspirational individual with what he’s been through, but extremely humble at the same time.
“I’m honoured and privileged he’s chosen AtTheMatch to work closely with his Heart4More Foundation for the fundraising dinner, where I beieve we’ll raise much needed donations for an important and worthy cause.”
Information on how to purchase tickets for this event and ways in which you can donate to save lives and empower the next generation will be made available on the AtTheMatch, Heart4More Foundation and soon to be launched fundraising dinner website in due course.
