Dear golf friends, Seven Cup Golf Tour fans,
We have another spring here, we are looking forward to the next year of our/your amazing golf tour and so we welcome another fighter with adversity.
This year, our, we believe, generous contributions will be directed to Eliška. An amazing 11-year-old girl whose heart stopped beating for a while a few days before she was born and stopped completely when she was born. The whole team of doctors did an almost miraculous job, so Eliška has been with us for 11 years and has been fighting bravely. She and her mother, grandmother and younger sister overcome prognosis every day. The prognosis which gave only 4% hope that everything would be managed. Eliška fought out her chance, but the price behind it was severe visual impairment, moderate hearing loss, epilepsy and cerebral palsy.
Dad couldn´t bear the weight of fatal difficulties and left the family, so her grandmother and little sister and mainly her mother after coming home from work exercise with Eliška during the day. The girls are a great team and they all support one another, so they would very much like Eliška to be able to sit on her own and smile at them.
So friends, now we are here to help a little. From what we collect as a contribution from our game and other activities, we can provide Eliška with a special rehabilitation and special aids. If we succeed, Eliška will sit on her own and gain at least a shard of self-sufficiency for her further life. I think, friends, our effort is worth it, what do you think?
Let´s wish a successful golf season, beautiful tournaments, a lot of fun and above all, a great feeling from the game and the fact that our great group can help, this time the fighter Eliška.
Have a nice game and good luck to everyone.

BONA, o.p.s. is an organization that supports people with mental illness on their path to reintegration into mainstream society. We provide social services in housing and employment. As part of our employment, we also have a glass workshop, which is a sheltered workplace. People acquire work skills and habits here, they learn the glass craft. In the workshop we work mainly with tiffany technology, thanks to which trophies are also made for the SEVEN CUP GOLF TOUR.
“In January 2018, Mr. Lubomír Petržela asked us if we would like to participate in the creation of cups for a sports tour. It was a big challenge for us and we tried to make a few suggestions. The gentlemen have chosen from the suggestions and we are now pleased with the nice cooperation on the prizes for golf tournaments, which have an overlap and help by money from tournaments where it is needed. We make a total of 42 cups for the golf tour. It takes us over 4 hours of work to produce one prize. We have not worked on such a big contract for a long time. Prizes are a challenge for us. In addition to the prizes for individual tournaments, we also produce cups for the final awards. We hope that the prizes will also be a pleasure for the winners, who will then take them home and show off their results.”
