Draft ABI golf day blog

Friday November 9th, a beautiful sunny day in Durban, this was the perfect setting for the 17th Annual ABI Charity Golf day and IkamvaYouth was the beneficiary. The IkamvaYouth team (Thabisile Seme ; KZN Regional coordinator, S’bonelo Cele; Umlazi Branch coordinator and N’thabiseng Zwane; Umlazi Branch Assistant), accompanied by 5 learners from the Umlazi branch arrived at the Mt Edgecombe Country estate at 10am.For the day, we were looking after the players and ensuring everyone is properly refreshed.


With the sun out, the golf course was great to play on, the players seemed to be having a good timeuntil around 3pm when the rain came down. Most of the contestants were able to finish the 18 hole course in time. By 5pm everyone was freshening up in preparation for the prize-giving dinner.


The dinner commenced at 6pm, and guests were welcomed by Norman Reilly, ABI national events manager. The programme included announcing the winners (from last to first place); handing over of the cheque; and auction which raised a further R4000 for IkamvaYouth. S’bonelo Cele had the honour of receiving the cheque for R50 000 on behalf of IkamvaYouth. The excitement from the IkamvaYouth team was very evident.

We would like to extend our gratitude to ABI for their massive support, as well as all the companies that participated and ensured a successful event, which raised much needed funds for the Umlazi branch.
