On the 6 June 2012 over 20 professionals from the Dutch financial alternatives community came together to show their support for the fund raising initiative of the Alternatives 4 Children foundation. During a special golf event at Golfbaan Amsterdam the foundation raised more than € 6.000 after costs for better education of children in Bangalore and Mali.
During this first A4C Golf Event over 20 professionals from the Dutch financial alternatives community played golf, enjoyed a nice BBQ and caught up with each other. By buying entry tickets for this Golf Game, they’ve donated together € 6.000 net of costs. The winner of the first Alternatives 4 Children Golf Tournament was “Team Ernst & Young”. The volunteers and management team of Alternatives 4 Children would like to thank all the players in this first A4C Golf Tournament, the sponsors and donors for being so generous.
“We are setting a precedent in developing an alternatives community in the Netherlands and showing the community that we are a force for good!”
