At the latest by the American auction he was fully awake, and so he obtained a flight to London. Host Manfred Staudinger led the auction to obtain lots of support for the Staudinger-Children-Initiative. At the end the proceeds reached 20.000,- €.
Bid for „tea-time“ with Franz Beckenbauer.
For a good cause the Mediamarkt firm founder, Leo Stiefel, was particularly enthuisiastic and finally received a game of golf with „Kaiser“ Franz Beckenbauer for his wife, Marion. The self-made-Euro-Milliardär came specially from Ingolstadt to congratulate the Staudinger brothers to their newest hotel. Although he is known for his good throws, the javelin Olympia winner Klaus Wolfermann (Munich 1972) obtained nothing at the american auction.
The vice-president of the Austria Salzburg football club, Hans Gegenhuber talked enthuisiastically with the German National League Trainer Lorenz-Günther Köstner about the Football -WManfred The highlight of the Gala was the Italian Pop Tenor Piero Mazzochetti, who was enthuisiastically received, especially by the ladies. So many famous people attracted the large German TV stations who, together with a number of German daily newspapers, brought free advertising for the region at the best sending times.
Also present was Roland Schindzilorz, the manager of the Munich radio station, Arabella, who beamed with pride as his son, Patrick, won the young generation class. Andreas Krickl, also a member of the venerable royal Wittelsbacher Golf Club in Neuburg a.d.

ISeen together at the golf tounament in one „flight“ the „red“ Austrian National Assembly member Emmerich Schwemlein and the Mediamarkt-founder and „black“ City Counsellor of Ingolstadt Leo Stiefel.
Dr. Erwin Prodinger, leading Commerce Proofer in Salzburg and, as an extra „job“ President of the "Leading Golf Course of Austria", Zell am See, was impressed: rain on the course for the golf tournament and none of the players came anywhere near their handicap. No-one? One person started without competition: Thomas Freimuth, Professional in the Munich noble club Eichenried, set his good reputation and won. As the only one he played a low 70 round (75). A Maserati Spider for a "hole in one"? The Ruf-Au tombile, known as the Porsche-Tuning-Schmiede, should have put an Italian noble sports car at their disposal, but at the final test drive before it was delivered to the golf club there was a collision with damages, leaving the Staudinger brothers to re-think, and so for a Birdie on the Par-3-hole the prize was a journey around the world. Not enough, Birdies und Pars were rewarded. Hans Georg Neumaier, President of the GC Olching and Presidentof the Munich Golfkreisels were very pleased to receive a week in a luxury appartment in Spanish Marbella, as also the singer Jaqueline Nemorin.
Ernst Hannawald, at one time Germany’s hopeful actor, now re-qualified as a bank crack, had a succesful report at the ready at the Gala Night: his book "Das Leben ist kein Film" (Life is no film) has just gone into the second editon. Personally he is openly planning his wedding with „his“ Marie Rudolph.
Motto of the Gala Evening came from Manfred Staudinger: "Drink a lot – for a good cause!“ The 100 % proceeds from the sale of wine and champaign went to the Charity Fund. "At last, a good excuse to drink....", said Saalbach’ World Cup Organizing Committee boss Peter Gumpold to Viehhofen’s village mayor Hans Streitberger.
Noted by their absence, although invited, were the heads of the local council were, amongst others, the village mayor of Saalbach, Peter Mitterer, and representatives from the Saalbach Tourist Board, with their managing director Wolfgang Breitfuß, who could be happy about the Gala: with the good contacts and experience of the hotels in the Staudinger Group one of the TV teams decided to present and send a Winter portait for the second time, and also a Summer report over the Glemm valley in a number of German-wide TV productions.
