Focus on the Family’s Charity Golf Event
On 16 July 2019, 136 golfers gathered at the all-new Tampines course at Tanah Merah Country Club for a memorable day to celebrate friendship, fun, and the importance of family. It was an honour to have Mr Seah Kian Peng join us as our Guest-of-Honour for the third consecutive time and to share the same passion for building strong families.
This was Focus on the Family Singapore’s fifth Charity Golf Tournament. Through corporate sponsorships, individual giving and sale of flights, the event raised $236,000 in donations towards equipping parents to raise resilient kids, strengthening the relationship of married couples, and restoring broken relationships between parents and children.
We are thankful to our generous prize sponsors, who have made the event all the more fruitful for all who took part. With prizes worth over $19,000 given away to the lucky draw and raffle ticket draw winners during dinner that included this season’s lifestyle collections from Coach, staycations at the Village Hotel at Sentosa and Park Royal Hotel, it was an exciting and delightful time for our golfers.
Following past years, we also held special games on the ground, including Nearest to Pin, Longest Drive, and Par3: One-On Challenge. Golfers received a wonderful surprise on the course where free flow ice cream from Udders were served as part of the refreshments, alongside drinks, kindly sponsored by Pokka! Expenses were kept to the 30-70 fundraising guideline at 26% of total receipts, and we did not engage third-party fundraisers.
We hope to see you all again at Charity Golf 2022!
