Jacques Houdek and Falky in the SOS Children's Village Lekenik

The new ambassador of the Falkensteiner Family Hotel Diadora, singer Jacques Houdek, brought a lovely surprise to the children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik. Falky is taking them to the seaside!

Children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik are already preparing their swimming armbands and beach balls, because this year they will spend an unforgettable summer at the Falkensteiner Family Hotel Diadora, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year! This happy news was brought to them by Jacques Houdek, who will be joining them at the seaside resort.


“I am delighted that I entered into this partnership with the Diadora Hotel from the Falkensteiner Group, because I have always heard it described as the leading family hotel. I can’t wait to visit it. When I got the call from Falkensteiner about being the part of this admirable campaign, I couldn't’ say no despite being on a creative sabbatical for the past two years. I love music and being with my fans more than anything, especially children, the most honest fans of all, who always give me back so much positive energy. The Diadora Hotel decided to celebrate its fifth anniversary by bringing joy to children in need, and I find that amazing”, said Jacques.


In his thanks for this donation, the director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik Mario Čović said: “We are grateful that Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences as our new partner has helped us financially, not just by covering the accommodation costs, but also by providing additional programs and activities during the time our children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik will be staying in their hotel in Zadar. The children and the SOS mothers accompanying them will have a wonderful time!”


"Falky will celebrate its fifth anniversary for a whole week, from July 5 to July 11. In addition to a concert by their beloved Jacques, kids will also be able to enjoy numerous activities and games. One day will be reserved for sport activities, the other will be pirate-themed, we will organize child Olympics and a cooking competition for the children who enjoy competing, and the illusionist Luka Vidović will be teaching the children some circus skills and magic tricks. Funtime is guaranteed!” said Marieann Patrk, Resident Manager of the Diadora Hotel.


“I had a really wonderful time with the children from SOS Children's Village Lekenik, we became fast friends and I can hardly wait to see them again at the seaside, at my concert in Diadora in July. We will have a great time at Diadora’s fifth anniversary; my new friend Falky promises a party to remember! I want to thank the management of the hotel for choosing me as a performer who appeals to the children vacationing at their resort. This is a special honor for me and I can’t speak of this great campaign highly enough – it is always an honor and a pleasure to work with true professionals. Above all, through this campaign Diadora’s team has shown their selflessness, and I appreciate that more than anything! See you at my concert on July 8!Love from Jacques!” concluded Jacques Houdek.
