Sandra Davis, a "proud" St Hugh's past student fondly known as 'Swans', is inviting golfers, golfing enthusiasts and charitable Jamaicans to support today's teeing off of the Swans Charitable Golf Tournament at the Constant Spring Golf Club in St Andrew.

The event tees off at 7 a.m. and continues to 2 p.m., with an entry fee of $4,000, which includes cocktails.

Competition will take on the 18-hole stableford format (scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole), with full handicap.

Categories include men, men's seniors, men's super seniors, ladies, juniors, as well as boys and girls aged 11-17.

The successful participants will be given prizes in a cocktail and awards ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m. The tournament director will be David Mais.

According to Davis, public relations officer, the event is being staged by the St Hugh's Past Students Association to raise funds towards the renovation of the St Hugh's High School Care Centre and Outreach programmes and to assist young ladies on welfare.

"We are looking to target 80-100 golfers, and we have been getting tremendous help through the Constant Spring Golf Club," she said.

"We are inviting our Swans to come and support us, and for those who don't play golf, there will be a fashion show put on by a Swan where swimwear, casual wear, and other clothes will be modelled," added Davis.

She stressed that Markland 'Action' Edwards and 'DJ Delly' from RJR would be entertaining from 1 to 4 p.m.

 

GRATEFUL FOR SUPPORT

 

"Our brother school, Kingston College (KC), we thank them for their support and all who came on board to assist us in our first staging of this event," Davis told The Gleaner.

Some of today's main event sponsors include Guardian Group, Campari/Wray and Nephew, Toyota Jamaica, Supreme Ventures, VMBS, Scotiabank, Jamaica National, KC Old Boys-Association, Singer, Bert's Auto Parts, Guardsman Alarm, Central Medical, Thwaites Finson and Sharp Insurance, Bio Medical, Tropical Blue, Mayberry Investments, plus Swans (past students) Roxanne and husband Michael Morris; and Loray Blair from Florida, United States.
