For the annual Camel Summer Charity Classic the weather was fine for golf. 198 golfers played in support of this most worthy of causes, for the St. Camillus Foundation which run the Camillian Social Center – a relief center for HIV/AIDs affected people, just out of Banchang, in Rayong.
This summer’s tournament raised a record total of 800,170.00 Baht, for the Camillians. The Camel Annual Charity Classic tournaments, since inception, have now raised over 7 million baht for the St Camillus Foundation.
Golfers from Banchang, Pattaya and Bangkok teed off from 06:30am through 1.15pm. A special thanks to all our registration folks (Vanessa, Bob, Bill, Jintana, Tong & the Camel ladies). Also, the organizers recognize the great support received and extend our warm gratitude to the management, staff and caddies from Emerald for turning the course and facilities out so very well.
The format was Texas Scramble and the Tournament had strategically placed Bracing Bloody Mary’s, Magnificent Margarita’s and Sizzling Sausages around the course to keep golfers strength up and their concentration focused.
After the game and some welcome refreshments at the clubhouse, golfers and their families made their way, by 5:30pm, to The Camel Pub, Banchang’s largest and finest pub/ restaurant. There, The Camel had prepared a pig on the spit and a sumptuous buffet.
Prize giving and presentations to the successful golfers started at 7pm. Excellent hosting was done by MC, John Sing with able support from Rod & Vanessa. Many kind donations were made by some very generous folks and the organizers extend their thanks.
