The fourth annual TCN Captains’ Christmas Dinner hosted by The Crew Network was held in Viareggio at Il Principino on the 6th of December, welcoming 250 guests including 140 Captains from all over Europe and industry sponsors.
This annual event was created in 2015 by The Crew Network to thank its trusted clients and captains who work with them on a regular basis. Every year the event sponsors a charity and this year Fondazione Insuperabili, which promotes football schools for children with special needs throughout Italy, was chosen.
Guests of the event were greeted with a welcome cocktail followed by a speech and presentation of the evening given by Alessandro D’Angelo, Manager of The Crew Network Italy and Raphael Sauleau, CEO of FRASER. This was followed by an exquisite sit-down dinner during which a raffle was held with amazing prizes provided by the various sponsors of the evening. At the end of the evening the results were in and an impressive €22,000 were raised for Fondazione Insuperabili, the highest donation gathered to date by The TCN Captains’ Christmas Dinner.
At the end of the evening, each guest received a gift bag including various goodies graciously provided by the sponsors, as a memento of this extraordinary party.
