Golfers give all for Choc
CHILDHOOD Cancer Foundation (CHOC) hosted the XL Aloe Travel Choc Golf Day recently at the East London Golf Club.
A whopping R106 000 was raised from the event this year, which will be used to assist in the running costs of the two Choc Houses in Beacon Bay, and the organisations various programmes.
“This year we did not receive funding from the Lotto so the money raised will make up for the shortfall in our budget,” Choc regional manager Debbie Kleinenberg said.
Aloe Travel general manager Juan Bedser encouraged other companies to take part in worthy initiatives such as this.
“As Aloe Travel, we were looking for a worthy initiative, something different and meaningful that could make an impact in society,” Bedser said.
Kleinenberg said that it was a privilege for Choc to be the beneficiary of such a prestigious annual golf day.
“The support that we receive from the greater East London community, both corporate and individuals are really appreciated and the funds raised will help towards the costs of the various programmes that we offer to children with cancer and their families,” she said.
PnA Stationers donated R3 120 that was collected from golfers at the hole that they sponsored at the Choc Golf Day.
