Club for char­ity

For the first time, the Ee Hoe Hean Club’s golf tour­na­ment gave back to the com­mu­nity by do­nat­ing its pro­ceeds to less priv­i­leged chil­dren. Plus, tour­na­ment par­tic­i­pants got the chance to win a Rolls-royce Ghost limou­sine.


So­cial and busi­ness club, Ee Hoe Hean Club, part­nered with Roll­sroyce Mo­tor Cars Singapore to or­gan­ise a char­ity golf tour­na­ment at Singapore Is­land Coun­try Club on 16 March. An un­prece­dented first was the of­fer of a Rolls-royce Ghost limou­sine to the player who could score a hole-in-one. epicure was there to wit­ness the ac­tion. The cov­eted lux­ury ve­hi­cle is worth at least $1.5 mil­lion, with the op­tion of spruc­ing it up with un­lim­ited be­spoke de­tail­ing. The event also took on a char­i­ta­ble mission – sup­port­ing less priv­i­leged chil­dren through The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.

Among the en­trepreneur­s, busi­ness­men and Rolls-royce cus­tomers at the tour­na­ment were guest-of-hon­our Chua Thian Poh, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and chair­man of the Ho Bee Group, and Ho Sum Kwong, group pub­lisher of epicure mag­a­zine and a di­rec­tor of Ee Hoe Hean Club. Founded in 1895, Ee Hoe Hean is one of Singapore’s most es­teemed mil­lion­aire clubs. “With ev­ery cel­e­bra­tion, we must re­mem­ber those who have less. We have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to pass on the life val­ues of giv­ing to the next gen­er­a­tion,” said Francis Ko, the Ee Hoe Hean Club pres­i­dent.

Al­though no one scored a hole-in-one at the golf course’s 14th hole, the event wasn’t for naught – $50,000 was raised from the game’s pro­ceeds to ben­e­fit school-go­ing chil­dren.
