Golfers in Barbados will have an opportunity to win a BMW 328i luxury sedan and assist disabled children at the same time when the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry hosts its Charity Golf Tournament on November 9.
The golfer scoring a hole-in-one will be the lucky winner of the BMW, which was donated by McEnearney Quality Inc.
Group Brand Manager of BMW, Joseph Tudor, stated that his company was pleased to be associated with the tournament as the company traditionally supported the cultural and sporting industries. Golf, he explained, was one of the sports that the BMW brand identified with, so it was a good fit for the company.
Funds raised during the tournament will be used to assist charity, which further appealed to MQI. In response, Vice President of Finance of the BCCI, Peter Downes, thanked MQI for its generosity and urged golfers to come out in their numbers to support the tournament, which is now in its second year.
Downes also thanked the other sponsor of the event, LIME, for throwing its support behind the event.
This year, part proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre, a facility that provides a full-time early stimulation programme for infants and children with disabilities from birth to five years.
Designed to provide a goal-oriented, time limited developmental and early intervention programme, it enables very young disabled children to reach and maintain optimum levels of physical, intellectual, emotional and social functioning.
Co-director of the centre, Cheryl Rock, while thanking the BCCI for choosing the trust, expressed happiness that the business community had not forgotten disabled children and thanked the sponsors for their fund-raising initiative.
The BCCI Charity Golf Tournament takes place at the Barbados Golf Club, Durants, Christ Church at 12:30 p.m. in a two-ball, better-ball format.
