Great support sees a record amount
Saturday, 16 June – Emerald Golf Course,
For the annual Camel
Summer Charity Classic the weather was
fine for golf. 198 golfers played in
support of this most worthy of causes,
for the St. Camillus Foundation which
run the Camillian Social Center – a
relief center for HIV/AIDs affected
people, just out of Banchang, in Rayong.
This summer’s tournament raised a record
total of 800,170.00 Baht, for the
Camillians. The Camel Annual Charity
Classic tournaments, since inception,
have now raised over 7 million baht for
the St Camillus Foundation.
Golfers from Banchang, Pattaya and
Bangkok teed off from 06:30am through
1.15pm. A special thanks to all our
registration folks (Vanessa, Bob, Bill,
Tong & the Camel ladies). Also, the
organizers recognize the great support
received and extend our warm gratitude
to the management, staff and caddies
from Emerald for turning the course and
facilities out so very well.
The format was Texas Scramble and the
Tournament had strategically placed
Bracing Bloody Mary’s, Magnificent
Margarita’s and Sizzling Sausages around
the course to keep golfers strength up
and their concentration focused.
After the game and some welcome
refreshments at the clubhouse, golfers
and their families made their way, by
5:30pm, to The Camel Pub, Banchang’s
largest and finest pub/ restaurant.
There, The Camel had prepared a pig on
the spit and a sumptuous buffet.
Prize giving and presentations to the
successful golfers started at 7pm.
Excellent hosting was done by MC, John
Sing with able support from Rod &
Vanessa. Many kind donations were made
by some very generous folks and the
organizers extend their thanks.
