The good cause was not neglected at the GUDE Darts Open either. In the celebrity match for the benefit of "Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.", FFH presenter Evren Gezer and Gabriel Clemens fought a duel with Frankfurt MMA fighter Max Coga and Luke Humphries. The Coga/Humphries duo prevailed 2:0. More important than the result is the money that was raised after the match through an auction of signed shirts and jerseys from the participants. A total of €5,000 was raised through the
live auction for the "Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V." charity. Dirk Möller from Ebersburg/Ried near Fulda won the bid for Luke Humphries' jersey at €3,300. The company Soundline GmbH & Co. KG from Mainz bought a signed jersey from Gabriel Clemens for €1,700.
