Event hosted by Meru Valley Resort raised RM150,000 for the less fortunate
Charity and golf went hand-in hand in the successful Cabaran Premix 1st Charity Golf which raised a total of RM150,000 at the Meru Valley Resort, Ipoh. The first-ever installation of this prestigious tournament saw a full field of 108 golfers in 27 flights swinging for a great cause.
The corporate social responsibility initiative was in line with Cabaran Premix’s vision, which is to give back to the community it operates in and draw tremendous support from the participating golfers. The tournament was aimed at fostering a stronger network among the golfers as well as to raise funds for the local charity bodies.
Proceeds from the tournament went to 37 local charity bodies around the silver state for children, youths and aged people with special needs. Donations and sponsorship ranged from RM350 to RM30,000 per individual golfer.
Jack Chong, the president of Cabaran Premix Charity Tournament said, “It’s a stepping stone for the organisation to indulge itself in corporate social responsibility projects and I’m very grateful for the tremendous support.” He also thanked the golfers for the great round of golf for an excellent cause.
Each welfare organisation received a RM1000 cheque from Michael Lee, treasurer of the organising committee. The remaining contribution was donated to Perak Yuk Choy High School for their needs. The beneficiaries expressed their gratitude towards the players and the organisation for their generosity.
The tournament which teed off in the afternoon concluded with a dinner and prize-giving ceremony. Winner of the tournament bagged a cash prize worth RM2000 with a crystal trophy and a Titleist golf ball set. Cabaran Premix looks forward to more charity tournaments in the near future for golfers to showcase their abilities and at the same time take their place as contributing members to society.
