The Bank Windhoek Golf Day in Aid of Welfare has raised N$130 000 for various charity organisations, which amounts to N$10 000 more than last year's raised funds.
The money, which was raised through the entry fees paid by the participating teams and the auctioning of several items signed by the sports legends and other fund raising activities on the day, will be distributed amongst various local charity organisations.
The event was held last week Friday, at the Windhoek Country Club Resort and Casino where 33 teams competed in a 10-hole golf course. The event was graced with the presence of selected sport legends and personalities includingMarnus Kruger, Gerrie Scheepers and Hendre de Vries who formed the loose trio that entertained the golfers at the prize-giving ceremony. Johan Heunis, a legendary Springbok fullback, was also present at the event.
