Coordinator of the DOAMF Charity Golf Tournament, Pat Bassey, said the different levels of support offered by the sponsors and individuals will go a long way in helping the Foundation increase its reach and touch more lives of the vulnerable and less privileged, especially children and youths.
According to him, “we feel very honoured that these corporate organisations and individuals see our efforts in improving lives as a worthy cause to invest in. As we have done over the years, we will be accountable and resolute in ensuring resources are prudently utilised in changing more lives.“
He added, “we get to do all these from the funds raised from the golf event, and that is why we value every measure of support we get from corporate organisations, groups and individuals.“
The finals, notable for its unique experience, will feature about 180 players in the draw. Participants are expected to participate in an 18-hole stroke play contest and overall winners would be rewarded in the evening at a prize giving cocktail. The cocktail would also provide opportunities to also interact with partners and donors.
