Second Golf day!!!
With the Covid restrictions finally behind us Pediatric Care Africa held its 2nd Charity golf day at White River Country Club in White River in
conjunction with Audi Centre Mbombela, Alan Hudson Motors, & @VW Group of Dealer as our main sponsors for the day. Thank you to all sponsored holes namely Century 21, Busamed Lowveld Private Hospital, Mbombela Auto Care, Sizabantu Piping Systems, Cactus Foundation and Skankane Transport. Furthermore we would like to thank all the golfers for making a contribution towards our day and making a difference in the lives of many children.
Perfect winter weather made for ideal playing conditions and 85 golfers teed off on a windless golf course.
With many prizes sponsored by VW & Audi, Netstar, Skankane, Kiaat Private Hospital, Busamed Lowveld Hospital, Rooikat Wholesale Liquor, Rooibaard, Louisiana, DBV Golf by Dalton Viviers, G-Shed & Mario’s Butchery and Superette, the players pulled out all stops and the competition was fierce with some fantastic play on the day.
The ladies team was an absolute pleasure to be around and have on the golf course. Great sense of humour, awesome sports and I cannot imagine a golf day without them.
Our main sponsor – The Lowveld Motors group of Audi & Volkswagen dealerships had a big role in our Pediatric Care Africa Charity Golf day and displayed some of their newest vehicles on the golf course for the day, and I must admit that I fell in love with one of the new Audi’s on display, and planning to write a long and serious letter to Father Christmas about it.
Adele du Plessis – the Dealer Principal of Audi Mbombela, deserves a special mention from us for her very kind contribution & support to us. Thank you very much Adele.
As the only “non-golfer” on the day, I heard golf terminology that I had absolutely no idea what it could possibly mean…….
We made sure our Golfers wouldn’t go hungry and Trinchados kept everyone well fed with delicious burgers, wraps at halfway and pizza for dinner. A well fed golfer is a happy golfer I was told….
After dinner and once everyone had soothed their thirsts appropriately, we had a prize giving with some great prizes for the players to take home.
Thanks to Rehann Coetzee from myLOWVELD.net – our MC for the evening – for doing all the talking and entertaining us.
And finally we got to the main fundraising event of the evening, in which there were a number of exciting items on auction ranging from Nguni skins to antique furniture displayed by Kraaines Furniture in White River.
To thank everyone for a day like this will take pages of writing but I cannot end without thanking Lee Melman our Corporate fundraiser who arranged this very enjoyable and successful golf day and to all the golf players who came out in force to support us and therewith the children that we serve and assist.
Every single one of you who participated is a hero to us, thank you very much.
