Support for the event "Discover PortAventura with Down Catalunya”

For the fifth consecutive year, PortAventura Business & Events together with PortAventura Park will host one of the most important charity events of the year:  “Vine a PortAventura amb Down Catalunya”. This socially responsible event will be held Saturday 5th October 2013 and tickets are available to the general public for the price of only 18 Euros.  One of the main objectives for the day is to sell as many tickets as possible, surpassing the 5000 people who attended previous editions.  The money collected will be used to cover event costs and the remaining proceeds will be handed over to Down Catalunya and its related organisations.

Down’s Syndrome Coordinator for Catalonia was founded in 2004 with the aim of helping and working for the future of people with intellectual disabilities, especially those who have Down’s Syndrome.  To do this, several associations and foundations formed a joint platform that could work more effectively to improve the quality of life of people with this syndrome in Catalonia by promoting innovative and sustainable intervention and training projects and supporting research and social awareness.  Their values are “Commitment” to those affected and their families, “Self-Determination and Independence” of people with Down’s syndrome, the attainment of “Equal Opportunities” and the “Efficiency” of results through networking to ensure mutual learning and enrichment of professionals’ skills.

In addition to the wide range that PortAventura Park has to offer its guests, during the morning there will be a show at the Gran Teatro Imperial starring young people with Down’s syndrome.   If you wish to attend this unforgettable event with your family and friends, tickets are available from Down Catalunya (Calle Pere Vergés 1 Despacho 9-4, 08020, Barcelona) or any of its organisations. They can also be purchased in advance for collection on the day of the event by calling (932 780 811) or via e-mail (info@sindromedown.cat).
