Charity Bonanza

Palmares Golf members raise money for charity through two fun-filled social events

WORDS Tracy Lee

The Winner Takes It Ball 

Cascade Wellness Centre was the perfect backdrop for this Abba-themed charity event held on Sunday, 7 May. The sun shone as drinks were served on the terrace.

Steve Marsh kicked the evening off with another round of Abba-themed Heads and Tails. Robert de Bruin was victorious! This was followed by the presentation of the February, March and April monthly medal prizes.

The buffet was exceptional and plentiful. Everyone enjoyed the food and visited again to replenish their plate on a number of occasions! So all there was left to do was dance off the calories. 

I had the honour of introducing the Vocal Duo AbbaDivaz and immediately, the dance floor was full and remained so throughout the night, with everyone enjoying the amazing music and atmosphere. The raffle raised €1170 for The Mustard Seed, which helps provide food for the homeless and disadvantaged in Lagos.

Thank you all for attending and supporting the event and especially to the team of ladies that helped to create the decorative elements that added to the night’s spectacle. Every member that attended the event were, “The True Winners That Made It All “, the most amazing event.

A ‘Masterful’ Charity Evening

The Augusta Masters-themed Palmares Annual Prize Giving Dinner was held on 27 March. It was kicked off with a round of Masters-themed heads and tails questions, thanks to Steve Marsh. Paul Daly and Marco Andrade presented the winners with their Trophies. 

The tables were all named after the holes at Augusta, each displaying a small golf green complete with the master’s infamous yellow pins, yellow flags and a golf ball for good measure. 

The raffle raised 840€ for The Mustard Seed Association. Fabulous tunes from The Protons provided the music for this amazing evening and the band ensured the dance floor remained full all evening. 

Thank you to all 80 members and non-members that attended. The evening was a great success, with excellent food and service provided by staff at the Tivoli under the watchful eye of Luciana.
