On 30 September 2021, we – HOPE Mallorca – were honoured by the Mallorca Zeitung for our tireless solidarity at the Castell Miquel winery near Alaró. The founders of HOPE Mallorca – Heimke Mansfeld, Jasmin Nordiek and Sonja Willner – accepted the award.
“We are incredibly proud and grateful for this recognition. Many thanks to all the volunteers, supporters and donors of our HOPE family. This award is OUR award.”
The award ceremony took place in a very dignified setting. After a welcome drink on the Castell with a fantastic view of the vineyards, cellist Bárbara González set the mood for the official part of the award ceremony with a suite by Bach for the approximately 120 guests. The moderator Lexa Wilms led through the programme. The prizes were awarded by Ciro Krauthausen (MZ editor-in-chief), Michael Popp (owner of the Castell Miquel winery) and Mercedes Garrido (Head of the Presidential Office and Balearic Minister for Public Administration).

After the official part of the event, the guests went out together for a chat and dinner on the terrace. Among the guests were former MZ Prize winner and entrepreneur Franz Kraus (Fet a Sóller), entrepreneur Helmut Clemens, who was honoured with the MZ Prize in a previous year’s edition, pop singer Peter Wackel as well as Sandra Seeling Lipski, founder and director of the Evolution Film Festival, singer Dennis Mansfeld and Will Kauffmann, founder of Kulturfinca.

“A special thanks goes to the Mallorca Zeitung. Not only does it help us to be seen through the award for social commitment, but it has been by our side since hour one and is instrumental in the high level of awareness that HOPE Mallorca has on the island, but also in Germany. Thank you very much for this!
