Since charity work was the priority for Sports Day at Pinetina di Appiano, the organizers themselves did not announce the list of winners. A request has also arrived from the participants themselves, with a laudable explanation that the charity – about 10,000 euros raised – should be done without spotlight nor on display. However, the award given at the end of the day is worth mentioning, “Melvin Jones”, awarded to Barbara Nova, who has always been close to the Lions and all of their initiatives.
