Golf and picnic fundraising event

Filipino Members Chapter

Filipino Members Chapter-Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba

In previous years, the Filipino Members Chapter-Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba hosted golf and picnic events separately. This is the first time that a joint golf and picnic event was organized with a fundraising component. The event took place on Saturday, August 4 at Harbour View Park. It was beautiful, warm August afternoon weather to play on an inviting course – perfect even for golf newbies.

“Weather forecast 24 degrees, a lovely day to play golf with fellow engineers and friends,” said Ray Sator, one of the organizers.

A total of seven teams of four members each participated in the golf fundraiser, which had a good turnout. As most participants were not familiar with golf, the organizers assigned at least one team member who knows a thing or two about golf. Newbies, experts and enthusiasts enjoyed the game on the greens, where upon completing the nine-hole golf tournament, everyone was invited to proceed to the picnic area.

At the picnic area, other chapter members, family and friends were waiting to feast on a whole litson and potluck meal. Amidst food, parlour games, laughter and raffle draws, fun did not end on the golf course.

The organizers would like to thank all the generous donors for the cash donations and prizes that were given away for golf contests, raffle draws and parlour game winners.

This fundraiser is one of two events that the chapter is planning for 2016.

Proceeds from the golf fees and cash donations will go directly to the bursary fund, which benefits the chapter student members.
