    An auction should be highlighted whose revenue reverts to the Cultural Association “Moinho da Juventude“.

    The revenue from the auction will be doubled by the Group, which thus reassumes and underlines its social role.

    The party promises to be lively, also with karaoke.

    They joined the four on the corner, they tuned to build a guitar … with wheels!

    Last Sunday the “autofado” team presented the vehicle at the Red Bull Grand Prix, the World’s Crazy Race!

    They say this is an event for the idiots, for fun, the fearless.

    The vehicle took a year and a half to build and weighs about 70 kg.

    In this group of friends we have two nurses, a programmer, and a mechanical metal worker who is also a fado guitarist.
