Golfers collect 5 grand for Encilia
WILLEMSTAD - During the first competition of the Old Quarterly golf tournament in late February at the Old Quarry golf course in Santa Barbara Plantation, golfers have given generously for a good social purpose. On behalf of sponsor SFT Bank, director Leo Rigaud handed a check for 5,000 guilders to Mrs. Rianne Plaisir of Fundashon Encilia - see photo. This is a foundation that gives a helping hand during emergencies in Curacao to assist children, young people and parents. They help children who come from a crisis situation and provide parenting support to parents. For young people, they have created the character forming prevention program named 'Wak bokaya'.
As the name suggests, this tournament is held each quarter, each time with a contribution for a different charity. So the next tournament will be held on Saturday, May 30th and then the ‘50 hours live project’ of the Rotary Club Curaçao will be the beneficiary.
