Eurotech Co-Sponsors "Viktory for Kids" a CBS Broadcasting Affiliate Event
for "The Children of Chernobyl Relief Fund"
FAIRFAX, VA - EUROTECH, Ltd, (AMEX-EUO) will be a co-sponsor of the "Viktory for Kids" event to benefit the "Children of Chernobyl Relief Fund".
World Olympic champion figure skater, Viktor Petrenko, will star with special guest Brian Boitano and an impressive array of other ice-skating performers at the International Skating Center of Connecticut in Simsbury, CT. Other event supporters include The Hartford Courant and WSFB, Channel 3.
The occasion will be covered by local CBS affiliate WSFB, Channel 3, one of New England's most influential TV stations, which plans to air the coverage on Easter Sunday evening directly after "60 Minutes". Eurotech's name and logo will be on the shirts of 50 or more children that will open the televised event with a theme song. Eurotech will also have a banner displayed and an insert in all programs that will be given out at the already sold-out event. During intermission, Eurotech's Chairman, Chad A. Verdi, and the Company's CEO, Don Hahnfeldt, will present an enlarged stock certificate symbolizing its gift of 10,000 shares of company stock.
The ice show seeks to raise funds for the Viktor Petrenko Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Odessa Ukraine. In addition to specifically helping procure supplies such as cardio-respiratory monitors, infant warmers and intensive care respirators, this show will expand awareness of the plight of these children.
Eurotech's connection to the event relates to its EKORä technology, the only product ever to successfully encapsulate one of Chernobyl's most critical radioactive fuel containing masses. A spokesperson for Eurotech stated that "The public should know this remarkable technology now exists to contain and help remedy nuclear waste problems, not just the ones at Chernobyl, which so sadly have affected these children, but other such problems which threaten kids all around the world". The month of March marks the one-year anniversary of the application that took place at Chernobyl and the company is more than eager to support this wonderful event.
The company went on to say that EKORä is now being manufactured in California and is available in the U.S. We have certification in the Ukraine and are bidding on DOE projects in the U.S. This marks the first time the company is in a position to sell EKOR to the end user and bring greater awareness to Eurotech's EKOR technology.
EUROTECH, Ltd. (AMEX: EUO) works with scientists and research institutes in Russia, Israel and other countries to develop and commercialize innovative technologies that have widespread or critical application. For more information, visit www.eurotechltd.com on the Internet.
