Fun day for a good cause New Agri SA corporate member
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.”¡
