The first Alternatives 4 Children Golf Tournament raises over € 6.000 for better education of children in Bangalore and Mali

 

On the 6th of June 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.

This support will enable Alternatives 4 Children (A4C) to contribute to the running costs of different small projects, such as a slum school in Bangalore, or a school community in 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.
