Golfers raise N$100 000 for welfare
The Bank Windhoek Holdings Golf Day in Aid of Welfare, which took place at the Windhoek Golf Club late last week was a roaring success with 30 teams battling it out to win the Winner’s trophy.
Corporate companies, government agencies and NGOs were invited to enter and compete for this noble cause. All proceeds raised will go towards various welfare organisations in Namibia.
Since its inception the Golf Day has raised over N$1,3 million in aid of welfare and This year N$100 000 was raised, but further funds will also be raised by the raffling of a Venter-trailer filled with groceries. The Venter-trailer is sponsored by Lubbe’s Motor Group, while the groceries are sponsored by Shoprite Namibia.
The format of this year’s golf day took on the format of scramble drive. The day concluded with a prize giving ceremony in the evening which saw each team receiving a prize for their efforts. Walvis Bay Branch was the winning team followed by Capricorn Asset Management on the second place and Bank Windhoek’s Marketing and Corporate Communication Services on the third spot.
“We want to thank all the participants in this year’s Bank Windhoek Holdings Golf Day in Aid of Welfare. Without each team’s outstanding sportsmanship, this event would not have been such a great success,” said Riaan van Rooyen, Head of Corporate Affairs, Strategy and Sustainability.
