Smelter golf day defending champions take the gold again

Smelter golf day defending champions take the gold again

Thomas Hailonga (middle) and Justice Goma-Uab (right) of Team Crossroads made a splash in Tsumeb last week Friday when they won the Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb golf fun day for the second time in a row. At hand to make sure the floating trophy which they won last year, stays in their possession, is Dundee Precious Metals Managing Director, Zebra Kasete (left).

Team Protea Chemicals was in second place with Team Tsumeb Municipality third.

All proceeds and sponsorships for the Tsumeb Precious Metals golf day go into the smelter operator’s social investment kitty from where it is allocated to charities. Dundee said it is part of their efforts to raise funds continually for their corporate social responsibility projects.

The money from last week’s mini golf tournament this year goes to Namibia Golf Tours and Nombstoub Old Age Home in Tsumeb

Friday’s event marked the 7th year of the annual fundraiser, this year attracting 26 teams from all corners of the country for a chance to scoop the floating trophy. A total of N$200,000 was raised in cash, various items for prizes and pledges.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Namibia Golf Tour’s Randy Shigwete and Nomstoub Old Age Home’s Moses Awaseb thanked Dundee for their charity golf tournament.

Managing Director Kasete, on behalf of Dundee Precious Metals thanked all the sponsors for making the event a success. “For the past 7 years, corporations and individuals played an important role in making this event a success. We could not have done it without your continued sponsorship and support. Year after year, players gather for fellowship, fun and laughter, all in the name of charity and this year was no different,” he said.
