Sixth Annual Golf Day


Our sixth annual Golf Day was held at Royal Durban Golf Club on Thursday, May 13 and was pronounced "Best ever".
After a wonderful day of golf and renewed friendships, some of the players travelled from Johannesburg, enjoyed by golfers and helpers alike, a prize-giving ceremony was held in the club house. Refreshments were served, Denise gave an excellent speech thanking everyone and re-iterating just how important it is for us to get children off the streets, to give them shelter, food, clothing, an education and skills training at our rehabilitation centre.
Two items were then auctioned - a football signed by the Bafana team which raised
R10,000.00 and a mosaic picture, painstakingly made by the boys from the Hope Centre and supervised by Karen which fetched R6,000.00. Our thanks to Ian Wyles the auctioneer. The raffle made over R4,000.00.
Guy Armstrong and Peter Bezuitenhout won the first prize for the golf - see presentation picture with Peter Bain.
Several holes were sponsored by local companies and individuals but the most popular was at the tenth tee. Kuehne & Nagel sent a team of three delightful young ladies who served liquid refreshment and snacks to the appreciative players.
We wish to thank all the participants, all the sponsors, the donors of prizes and the helpers for making May 13 a memorable day.
