Coscharis Motors Plc, the exclusive representative of the iconic French automobile brand, Renault vehicles in Nigeria gave members and friends of the late Golf buff, Chief Luke Uche Okpuno a memorable experience of the French brand during the recently held memorial tournament at the Ibori Golf and Country Club in Asaba, Delta State.
The major highlight of the tournament was the sponsorship of the Hole-In-One prize of a Renault Duster donated by Coscharis Motors Plc. This expectedly raised the bar of the tournament with both the Pros and others that participated aiming at going home with the star prize but unfortunately, it was a tall order for any of the golfers that participated to hit the hole in one but ultimately it still created the real fun of the game for all the participants.
In his words, Abiona Babarinde, General Manager, Marketing & Corporate Communications, Coscharis Group who represented the sponsor, he said “our sponsorship of this tournament with a Renault Duster for the Hole-In-One prize amongst other donations made towards the success story of the tournament was to first and foremost celebrate a loyal customer of Coscharis in his lifetime in person of late Chief Luke Uche Okpuno and to do that is to key into his favourite sport of Golf when he was alive. Likewise to be able to create an avenue for his family, friends and well-wishers to come together for a tournament like this in his honour to unwind with the game of golf and at the same time have the opportunity to aspire to own any of the brand new Renault vehicles on display aside the one for the star prize.”
According to the coordinator of the tournament who happened to be the junior brother to late Chief Okpuno in person of Honourable Gabriel Okpuno while speaking at the closing ceremony, showered so much encomium on Coscharis as a brand for the support towards a success story of a dream come true (the tournament) to honour his late brother with a sport he loved so much during his lifetime. He further stated that his wish, the entire family together with the leadership and members of Ibori Golf & Country Club, Asaba is to immortalise Chief Okpuno’ s name with a yearly tournament in
his memory with the prayer that a reputable brand like Coscharis will continue to back them up with their sponsorship support like they did this year.
The one week tournament that started on March 20th ended on a very exciting happy note on March 25th with a well packaged dinner and prize giving ceremony to various participants that won in different categories of the tournament. The Captain of the Club, Surveyor Jimmy Odogwu thanked everyone that participated especially the sponsors led by Coscharis Motors Plc that presented the star prize of Hole-In-One. The prize giving segment ended with the announcement of the overall winner in person of Mr. Collins Oseh.
