The team of Frank Ward, Allen McMullen, Paul Blackshaw, and Keith Bowles emerged victorious with a superb nett score of 56.5. Hot on their heels were the “Beauties and the Beasts” team, consisting of Sasicha, Nok, Mark, and Gerry, who finished second with an excellent score of 57.

The primary beneficiaries of the event were the Mercy Center and the Rotary Club of Pattaya Bang Lamung, which together received 19,000 Baht in donations. This support will significantly bolster their ongoing charitable efforts.
