Gauteng North Golf Union To Subsidise FSP, Sponsor Fundraiser
The SADGA is thrilled to announce that the Gauteng North Golf Union has pledged R30 000 to the region’s First Swing Program and an additional R18 000 to host a golf day fundraiser.
The effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic are still being felt acutely across all facets of society. Due to the Covid-19 regulations and out of concern for its membership and sponsors, the SADGA had to cancel four of its fundraisers as well as its flagship event, the Canon SA Disabled Golf Open.
Despite the financial implications of these cancellations, the SADGA has remained afloat thanks to the significant contributions of a number of golf unions the country over. The R30 000 donated by Gauteng North will help the SADGA revive its First Swing Program coaching sessions in 2021 at Transoranje, Alma and Pretoria School respectively.
SADGA Executive Director Craig Moorgas thanked the union for its contribution, remarking that it would help alleviate some of the financial challenges being felt by the association.
“2020 has been a trying time for the SADGA in many respects not least of which from a financial standpoint,” said Moorgas.
“Having to cancel four of our fundraisers was a significant blow but with the fantastic support of the golf unions all around the country we’ve managed to weather the storm.
“On behalf of the membership and staff of the SADGA I’d like to thank the Gauteng North Golf Union for helping to alleviate some of the financial difficulty we’ve endured this year and for contributing towards what will hopefully be a better 2021.”
