A fun golf tournament where the individual can make a difference


With sponsorship from AustCham, the very active Women with a Mission is holding its fourth annual Charity Golf Tournament on Friday 19 October at the famous Phoenix Golf Club.

As Bronwyn Carey, one of the three Women with a Mission pointed out, this is a ‘real’ golf tournament providing a competitive outing, as well as being a fun day for individual golfers or teams of four.

‘Fun’ items include a Samsung Galaxy tablet (donated by dtac) for the first hole in one on a par three hole, plus accommodation packages in Pattaya, Khao Lak, Si Kao and the Golden triangle (with one package worth B. 90,000), an iPhone 4S, vouchers for many restaurants in Pattaya, including the Mantra, sailing lessons, golf gear, an Ocean Marina sunset cruise, check-up packages from the Bangkok Hospital Pattaya and Jelly Belly gift baskets.

These Women with a Mission (Rosanne Diamente, Kylie Grimmer, Bronwyn Carey) believe that education of needy children is the key to opening the door for their future, but as their work in this area began to encompass more groups of children they found that for education to happen, these children needed feeding and a roof over their heads.  Currently they are supplying 750 meals every day preparing needy youngsters to be fit enough to receive that education.

This golf tournament is their way to raise funds to provide that education, meals and housing and is their only major fund-raising event, and is one that deserves your support.

The Friday 19 tournament at the Phoenix Golf Course has a shotgun start at noon (registration 11 a.m. until 11.45 a.m.) and has a B. 3,500 individual entry or B. 14,000 for a team of four includes the green fee, caddy, goody bag, tournament golf shirt and admission to the AustCham’s Sundowners networking event at the Holiday Inn in Pattaya (cart and tip not included).

The Women with a Mission firmly believe that individuals can make a difference, and entering this golf tournament does make a great difference for the needy children being cared for by them, both along the Thai-Burma border and in Chonburi for special needs children such as those born with cerebral palsy.
