ABF hosts successful Cape Town golf day

The ABF Vital Support Fund hosted their first golf day in Cape Town for some years. The event was well attended by the industry with support from media owners as hole sponsors and the next Cape Town Golf Day, to be held towards the end of the year, is already in the planning stages.
Sharlene Vallance, ABF Executive Committee Member enthuses, "We had 22 four balls and several holes had been sponsored. The day went off smoothly with winners G Randall, J Bowles, P Sproul and L Witbooi posting great alliance scores."

The ABF would like to thank City Lodge for sponsoring its accommodation and Tempest Car Hire for the car. "It is so important that we raise as much money as possible and we just can't do it without our sponsors. They make an enormous difference."

Other sponsors on the day include DStv Media Sales (dinner sponsor) and Ads 24 (halfway house sponsor). "The evening function was hosted by Chris Moerdyk who rallied the audience in the media auction to raise some much needed cash," says Sharlene. "We need to thank Ryan Stramrood, Ramsay Media, Advantage magazine and BizCommunity.com for sponsoring auction items which allowed us to raise funds. Chris entertained the audiences and didn't slip away until they had pledged money in some way to the ABF."
