The Hua Hin Rotary Club was Charted in April 2010 and has run an annual golf tournament since inception. This year’s was the 4th and the most successful to date.
Last year the Event raised 540,000 Baht for the charity fund and this year’s tournament over 700,000 Baht will be raised.
This event is the Club’s main annual fund raising event. During the year there are other fund raising activities e.g. concerts, but the golf tournament is the big one.
The Club recognises the value of enabling today’s youth to become tomorrow’s responsible parents, professionals, business leaders and community leaders.
The proceeds of the Golf Tournament are dedicated to the “New Generations” initiatives for students to succeed in the future. Initially the focus was on the installation of clean drinking water systems in rural schools. School renovation projects were then added to the list, including health issues and improving school canteens and toilet facilities.
The 2013 tournament will provide for more school renovation projects and the sponsoring of disadvantaged students in English speaking programs. A hearty thank you was offered to all sponsors and players.
Everybody appeared to enjoy the event and Rotary is optimistic that the 2014 Event will be even bigger and better.
