Being out of the office, playing golf and giving back to a good cause, sounds too good to be true. A day of golf is one thing but doing it for charity rather than pure enjoyment is a completely different story. The overwhelming feeling of giving back to an admirable cause can’t be put into words; this is something the Three Cities Group can completely relate to after their most recent golf day with all proceeds going to two local charities. The Three Cities Golf day which took place at Umhlali couldn’t have been made up of a more enthusiastic group of golfers, from clients to suppliers everyone played with two goals in mind, to take pleasure in the day and make some much needed money for charity.
Once T off started all the hard work preparing for the day was forgotten , from that minute forward it was all about the charities. The two selected charities for the day were, The Cape Leopard Trust and Child Welfare, even though in completely different categories both as important as each other.
The Cape Leopard Trust aims to optimally facilitate conservation of the Cape’s predator diversity through simultaneously implementing conservation strategies, research projects and tourism initiatives. It also educates and encourage the youth of disadvantaged communities to have a vested interest in the environment, combining both education and conservation. In a totally different category is the Child Welfare Durban and District Charity selected by Three Cities as another deserving charity to which the funds raised went to. Child Welfare Durban and District is an organization committed to protecting the rights and enhancing and promoting the quality of life of children, families and communities in Durban, working for social justice for all individuals.
Figures made from the golf day reached R130 000, a substantial amount to be divided between both charities. Recently the two charities received R65 000 each from The Three Cities group. Marius Earle, National Operations Director said “One of the most memorable days for our team, seeing genuine gratitude from such outstanding charities, warmed all our hearts. ” Three Cities would like to thank all staff, clients and suppliers who made this day possible, a true group effort helping these two charities to grow and develop, reaching their goals and changing lives.
