The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

Aim­ing to raise aware­ness of the im­por­tance of early de­tec­tion of cancer and to ed­u­cate as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble on the signs and symp­toms of can­cers, the third Cancer.vive Golf Clas­sic - hosted by As­tral Foods in part­ner­ship with Cargill - raised over R150 000 for cancer-re­lated causes.

The golf day was held on in May at the Els Club Cop­per­leaf. As­tral and Cargill raised R100 000 for Cancer. vive and re­ceived pledges of R55 700 from com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als. The play­ers raised an­other R3 300 in the player shoot-out, aim­ing at the life­size cut-outs of Chris Schutte, CEO of As­tral, and Bren­don de Boer, head of Cargill’s agri­cul­tural sup­ply chain busi­ness in sub-sa­ha­ran Africa.

The win­ners of the tour­na­ment were Trade­van­tage Grain, with run­ners-up Wil­lis Tow­ers Wat­son and RMG Foren­sic Ser­vices, all of who do­nated their prize money to their cancer char­ity of their choice.

“We are very pleased with the suc­cess of this tour­na­ment and for the gen­er­ous do­na­tions to this wor­thy cause by all in­volved,” said Chris Schutte, As­tral CEO. “We look for­ward to con­tinue our sup­port for cancer-re­lated is­sues.”¡
