Participants are expected to feature in an 18-hole stroke-play contest, with winners to be rewarded later in the evening at a prize giving cocktail event. Three business class return tickets to choice international destinations are among prizes up for grabs by winners.
According the coordinator of the DOAMF Charity Golf Tournament, Pat Bassey, the premium and fun-filled atmosphere at the tournament celebrates and motivates sponsors and donors, which in turn encourages high levels of support to the Foundation to increase its reach and touch more lives.
“We are ready to put up a show worthy of the brand and social responsibility reputations of our esteemed corporate and individual sponsors, who continue to support our efforts in bettering lives of the less privileged in our society. And, as we have done over the years, we are committed in ensuring resources are prudently utilised in changing more lives,” he said.
He revealed that since DOAMF was founded 10 years ago, it has touched about 66,000.Bassey added: “We also use this opportunity to appreciate those corporate organisations, groups and individuals who continue to give generously of their resources, through this golf event, in order to enhance the capacity of the Foundation to deliver on its mission of touching lives.
“We warmly welcome participants and invited guests to the tournament and the evening cocktail event and, look forward to interacting with all our partners and donors and to formally appreciating them for keeping the Foundation’s charitable works afloat.”
