The final of the seventh edition of the Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial Foundation Charity Golf Tournament tees off on Saturday, February 4, 2017, at the golf course of Ikoyi Club 1938 in Lagos, amid strong support from corporate and individual sponsors.
Already, most of the players are looking forward to enjoying the unique tournament day experience, featuring a very competitive field of golfers, international standard tournament management and trophies/prizes, with unrivalled player hospitality, fanfare and care.
Participants are expected to feature in an 18-hole stroke-play contest, with winners to be rewarded later in the evening at a prize giving cocktail event. Three business class return tickets to choice international destinations are among prizes up for grabs by winners.
According the Coordinator of the DOAMF Charity Golf Tournament, Pat Bassey, the premium and fun-filled atmosphere at the tournament celebrates and motivates sponsors and donors, which in turn encourages high levels of support to the Foundation to increase its reach and touch more lives.
“We are ready to put up a show worthy of the brand and social responsibility reputations of our esteemed corporate and individual sponsors, who continue to support our efforts in bettering lives of the less privileged in our society. And, as we have done over the years, we are committed in ensuring resources are prudently utilised in changing more lives” he said.
Since DOAMF was founded ten years ago, about 66,000 lives have been touched.
“We also, use this opportunity to appreciate those corporate organisations, groups and individuals who continue to give generously of their resources, through this golf event, in order to enhance the capacity of the Foundation to deliver on its mission of touching lives” Bassey added.
“We warmly welcome participants and invited guests to the tournament and the evening cocktail event and, look forward to interacting with all our partners and donors and to formally appreciating them for keeping the Foundation’s charitable works afloat.”
