SevenSeven hosted an event in which the winners of the bids received the prize from the hands of the team members

The SevenSeven room was the scene of the act of delivery of the solidarity shirts against cancer, which the BAXI Manresa players wore in the victory against Casademont Zaragoza in the Nou Congost and were subsequently auctioned on the club's website. Among all the winners, two per player, a total of 14,172 euros were raised, which have been allocated to the AECC-Catalunya Contra el Cáncer.

In an act conducted by Damià Badia, head of communication of the club, the parliaments of the board of directors Montse Seubas and the local leaders of the Spanish Association Against Cancer, Manresa, Txus Pérez, the Anoia, Elia Gabarró, and that of Barcelona, ​​Ángela Sánchez. Then it was the turn of the delivery itself, and the players went on stage to give the prize to the winners. In addition to the shirt, the top bidders of each also took the pants.

The most outstanding contribution was that of the Phoenix Suns guard Ricky Rubio, who lost his mother because of cancer and paid 5,000 euros for the shirt of his former partner and friend Pere Tomás. Rubio could not attend the event, but sent a video in which he congratulated BAXI for the initiative.

The event was closed by the president of the club, Josep Sáez, who mainly highlighted the work of the representatives of the AECC. Finally, attendees were able to take pictures and share a while with their idols.
