More than 60 golfers are expected to participate in the Rotary Club of St Andrew North Education Foundation’s 21st Anniversary Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 16   at the Caymanas Golf & Country Club, with a shot gun start at 8:30 a.m.

The Buccaneers of Caymanas Golf Club have already indicated an intention to participate.

The event is to raise funds to continue the Rotary Club of St Andrew North’s scholarship programme.  Over the past 21 years the club has given financial support to about 100 secondary and tertiary students in the St Andrew North region. 

“After two decades of making contributions to several students in need, the directors of the foundation felt the time had come to bolster the fund in order to increase the level of support to each student.  We are looking forward to a successful  fundraiser and appreciate the contributions received  in cash and kind from Corporate Jamaica for what could become an annual event,” said Donald Patterson, past president of the Rotary Club of St Andrew North and  organiser of the tournament

According to Patterson the winners will be recognised at a prize-giving ceremony at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The overall winner will get an all-inclusive  weekend  stay for two at Breezes Bahamas hotel.  Among the other prizes are a weekend for two at Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, as well as electrical and electronic items, household items, mobile phone and gift certificates.

The categories of prizes will include Best Rotarian Score; Male Super Senior; Women and Men, in addition to the Overall Winner.

Patterson said tee off spaces can be reserved by calling the registration desk at Caymanas Golf Club. Walk in registrations will also be accommodated on Saturday.

As a registered charitable organisation, contributions or grants to the Rotary Club of St Andrew North Education Foundation are treated as tax allowable expenses.
