Announcing the Rotary Zanzibar & Fumba Town Golf Day
We are excited to announce another Rotary Zanzibar & Fumba Town Day. We are proud to be the main sponsor of this event for the third year in a row now. We support them due to their major impact on the local community and the large multiplying factor of the money raised. As a major business entity in Zanzibar we see the support of this thriving charity as part of our social corporate responsibility.
The event will take place on the 29th of September and it is awaiting the purchase of your ticket to take place as a golfer or to come out for the gala event in the evening. The “19th Hole Dinner & Dance” is a great night out for all and open to anyone. Players’ entry fee of $120 includes a high quality goody bag entry to the 19th Hole event, and for friends and family the cost is $40 per person.
In 2016, the Golf Day event raised $16,600. Within 2 weeks the charity had spent $8,000 on much-needed equipment for Makunduchi Hospital. With the rest of the money they reached out to the international community of Rotary in Germany and the US, and through multiplication they secured an $80,000 grant to spend on specific refurbishments of Makunduchi Hospital.
In 2017 they partnered with Zanzibar Learning 4 Life, a committed and energetic local educational NGO who are planning and building a community school at Unguja Ukuu. Again they plugged into the Rotary Network to multiply the $17,000 raised at the Golf Day event and now reached $150,000 to enable the funding of the school building programme.
Let’s join together and make this event even more successful than than the previous ones!
