To play golf for fun is a very rewarding feeling, but to know that having fun makes a difference in a needy human being is the pinnacle of satisfaction. The supreme golf course of Sabi River Sun Resort set the picturesque venue for 96 golfers to compete in the annual Sizabantwana golf day on November 9. All the earnings are being donated to the orphaned and vulnerable children of Sizabantwana situated in the Mariti area just outside of Hazyview. The first enthusiastic golfers teed off at 7:45am and competitors battled on till past 6pm to round this glorious day off with fun and laughter at the club house prize giving.
Ten randomly picked boys of Sizabantwana got the opportunity to accompany the caddies and players on the golf course. This gave them exposure to the game of golf and a whole lot of other things like etiquette and mannerism in. It gave them the opportunity to ask questions and communicate with peers other than their everyday life. You only need one opportunity in life to prepare you for a life time, and the hope is that this day was such a moment.
Thanks to all the sponsors and “Friends of Sizabantwana” who contributed towards this life changing golf day. Your generosity WILL make a difference to the children of the Lowveld. The sponsored hole of the day goes to the tooth fairies of Harvey world Travel – Nelspruit. Their enthusiasm, charm, and wit gave the players the much needed laughter and energy to stay on top of their game. To become a “friend” please visit www.sizabantwana.org and help us to look after the orphaned of South Africa. It doesn’t matter if you were part of the problem, you CAN be part of the solution.
Next on the priority list for Sizabantwana is giving each of the 650 children the privilege of a present for Christmas and a special Christmas meal. You can help by donating anything. Deliver at Induna Adventures or Call Jaco Lubbe on: 082-429-0679
