Jesters Care for Kids Charity Drive 2013
The overwhelming majority of the Jesters Care for Kids fund-raising comes from corporate and individual sponsorship, which allows us to effectively provide disadvantaged children with safe environments, educational options via scholarships and specialized schooling for the disabled. Last year 88% of the 6,635,663 baht raised, came from sponsorship.
Also in this category are charity golf tournaments. In 2012, we were benefited by 3 such events, all of which came in as major sponsors.
The Canadian Jackalope Open has been with us since 2008 as a Diamond Sponsor, or 400,000 baht donor, and by request; their entire donation goes to the Camillian kids living with HIV.
And now, since last year The Links Hotel on Soi Buakaow has joined in with ‘The Links Challenge’ and was a Platinum-plus Sponsor, having raised 121,270 baht. Still later in the year, Lotus Valley Golf Resort in Chachoengsao also entered the fray with their ‘Lotus Valley Charity Classic’ and were also a Platinum-plus Sponsor raising 166,000 baht.
Together, these 3 charity golf tournaments provided us with 687,270 baht last year which was a great boon for the Jesters Care for Kids Charity Drive 2012.
Now in the New Year, the first up and right around the corner, is ‘The 2013 Links Challenge’ on Thursday, February 14 at Khao Kheow Country Club.
The format is a 2-man scramble with team prizes awarded to 1st through 4th places, with the first prize pair getting two sets of Callaway irons! There are also technical prizes for every hole!
The prize-giving ceremony and buffet dinner will be back at The Links Hotel, all for 2000 baht, which includes caddy and green fees and food.
If you would like to sign up for this fun tournament and/or be a sponsor, please contact them at [email protected] .biz or call them at 084 782 4582.
We hope to see you there too!
