GEG Offers Local Youngsters Opportunity to Interact with China Women’s National Volleyball Team

June 4, 2012 – As the China women’s national volleyball team arrived at Macau on Monday for the “FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix™ Macau 2012”, the sponsor of the tournament Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) offered the youngsters of Sheng Kung Hui “Star of Hope” Youth Home an exclusive opportunity to meet with the Chinese team players at Macau Forum, bringing them wonderful volleyball experiences with world class athletes.

Joining the activity were 10 teenage girls aged between 12 and 19, as well as the staff from “Star of Hope” Youth Home, who immediately took photos with the players as they arrived. The teenagers were then offered a great chance to play a game with the friendly athletes who showed them the techniques of setting and passing the balls.

As most of the participants are familiar with the sport, they managed to do well under professional guidance and were certainly filled with great joy interacting with the top notch volleyball players. With gratitude towards GEG for this special treat, Ms. Hsiao Yi Pin, Superintendent of the youth home, said, “The activity has offered the girls a chance to meet with great athletes, which will not only broaden their vision, but will also strengthen their interest in sports.”

The young participants were gratified as they received the presents from GEG including stationeries and USBs after the game. To let the teenagers from the youth home truly experience the exciting ambience of live competitions, GEG will also invite them to watch the game between Puerto Rico and Thailand on the coming Saturday. A delicious lunch buffet at Temptations of StarWorld Hotel will be specially arranged before the game so as to create a fulfilling weekend for the youngsters.
