Prague 12/14/2010

Prague Airport has announced its fourth Good Neighbor Project in an attempt to contribute to the development of towns and boroughs in the immediate vicinity of the airport. As in past years, Prague Airport is devoting CZK 9 million to various projects carefully selected as making a difference for a broad range of residents from children to seniors.  

The ceremonial signing of the donation contracts was attended by Chairman of the Board and General Director of Prague Airport Miroslav Dvorak, along with representatives of towns and boroughs around the airport. The Mayor of Stredokluky, Jitka Holmanova, had this to say: "I appreciate the fact that Prague Airport is still providing significant assistance for partner municipalities and supporting projects that would be difficult for our town to find money for itself because of the tough economic situation."

Some of the many projects supported:
Placement of activity equipment for seniors and benches in the Prague burrough of Suchdol
Participation of the Musica e Dariza Choir in the International Choral Festival in Austria - Friends of Dědina Elementary School
