18th edition of the Evian Masters, again under the sign of solidarity with a beautiful highlighted ELA

Written on Friday 17 August 2012


It is now traditional: every year for 10 years now, the Evian Masters honors ELA. Again this year, while the best players in the world compete on the course of the Golf Evian, the Village hosts a booth where the colors of fluff ELA, caps, golf balls and other TShirts are sold in aid of the association. We can even provide pedometers for it, within the day, not counting its ELA for the principle of “Operation Put your sneakers in the company” back on the stand ELA, volunteers convert not in their gift for ELA (1 = not 1ct €).

But of course, for all the families of mobilized ELA, the appointment of the Evian Masters flagship is the charity match held alongside the prestigious golf tournament, Thursday, July 26, on the Stadium Camille Fournier Evian . Opposing team “VIP” to that of caddies and players, the meeting ended with a score of 6-4 prolific for VIPs, led by a certain Zinedine Zidane still present in the cause of ELA and particularly motivated to save his team. Abdelatif Benazzi, more accustomed to the oval ball, and also emeritus golfer, he also showed some quality football by finding the path to the goal twice … Sabri Lamouchi (2 goals also) and Alain Boghossian (1 goal) have, more legitimately, successfully deceived the keeper before Zizou (1 goal, 1 assist … and some good accelerations!) does not add a final goal for his team. Alongside them, MC Solar, Tomer Sisley, Laurent Blanc, Christian Karembeu Chenut or even Christopher, patron of the supplier of the event, have not fallen far from it. Coached by an exceptional duo with Franck Riboud, Danone’s chief Jacques Bungert and organizer of the Evian Masters, the former Blues 98 have even impressed the large audience to applaud the stars. In total, this is a check of 5.000e (500 € per goal scored) that the pros use, partner and sponsor of this tournament exhibition game, gave the association for this charity match.


Good memories for all, a strong awareness of all the public in combat and a large collection ELA to help research and families, this 2012 edition has been a great success. Appointment is given in 2013 when the tournament will sport a new dimension by becoming label “Major”.
