Marbella Ladies Golfing Association announces ambitious fundraising plans for 2011
Marbella Ladies Golfing Association is a friendly association which welcomes Ladies of all abilities living or holidaying in Marbella to come and enjoy a game of golf. The club is non-profit making and can negotiate discounts for their members with the areas’ best courses to make golf both more affordable and more sociable. It’s an excellent way to enjoy life to the full on the wonderful courses of the Costa del Sol while keeping fit, making friends and meeting business contacts.
This organisation has been combining a love of golf with a passion for giving back to the community since 2007. Last year, through a series of fundraising events, they were able to raise over 4,000€ which was donated to Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice and the Malaga orphanage Cuidad de los Niños.
Marbella LGA has even more ambitious plans for 2011 as Founder Beatriz Crawford-Carse explains. “Since setting up Marbella LGA in 2006, I was determined that we would contribute to the community via donations to worthy local charities. Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice is battling to stay open and care for its patients and Cuidad de los Niños has many children relying on them for accommodation, food and education, so it’s vital that they can count on regular donations from organisations such as ours.
Rather than simply focus on our large charity events to fundraise, we will now be adding a small donation to the cost of each event we run. As we negotiate such excellent discounts with the courses, it will still cost less for our members, but we can be building up a fund throughout the year.
Of course, we will still be organizing our charity events as well and hope the business community can help us via sponsorship and the golfers will give generously. Our aim is to double our total from this year and raise 8,000€ for these charities during 2011, a target I am sure we can reach with hard work and generosity from the residents and golfers of Marbella.”
