RIT Croatia Tiger's tournament for a good cause



The first generation of RIT Croatia Tigers got together on November 15th in Dubrovnik for a basketball game which had a charity cause.

All the funds raised were donated to Perica Mijović- Dugi who unfortunately is not in the best health and financial situation. Perica Mijović- Dugi is a former professional basketball player who played for Cibona along with Aco Petrović, Sven Ušić, Andro Knego and others. Dugi contributed a great deal in forming the RIT Croatia Tigers team along with our Alumni. Thanks to his efforts, RIT Croatia Tigers had some great opportunities: games with KK Konavle, KK Croatia, KK Dubrovnik and universities in the region, as well as the opportunity to compete with B2 clubs in the county. Dugi also organized the first sponsorship "Delta Security” where our Tigers club received their jerseys and other basketball equipment, funds for hall payment, travel and judges. Overall, Dugi really contributed a lot, both financially (by securing sponsorships) and professionally (with his experience).

• Current students (Basketball club) vs. Tigers (Alumni)- Result: Students won the game
