Our Annual Bayradiology Charity Golf Day in proud association with our Title Sponsor Standard Bank and main sponsors East Cape X-rays and Promed, was hosted on 20 November 2015 at Wedgewood Golf Estate.
Building on the foundation of last year’s very successful event we managed to raise the bar even higher this year by offering our sponsors and golfers a day with fun filled activities on the course, a delightful lunch and dinner, amazing prizes and the opportunity to spend the evening with Rugby Guru and SuperSport Presenter, Mr Naas Botha! Naas was our guest golfer for the day and was kind enough to share years of rugby knowledge with our golfers. What an amazing talk by such a renowned rugby player – a true master in his field.
Our charity this year was the local branch of the Smile Foundation. The Smile Foundation is a South African non-governmental organisation with a holistic health care vision for children with facial conditions. The Smile Foundation together with the country’s Academic Hospitals work together to put the smile back onto our children’s faces with free corrective facial reconstructive surgery and treatments. Our Golf Day raised an amount in excess of R60 000 for the Smile Foundation. “We help children who suffer from treatable facial deformities such as Cleft Lip and Palate, burn victims, Moebius syndrome (facial paralysis) and other conditions. Thank you to Bayradiology, Standard Bank and the main sponsors for selecting the Smile Foundation as the beneficiary of your annual golf day. Your generous donation will be used to assist children in the Eastern Cape. Our Chief Patron, Nelson Mandela’s wish is for us to assist as many children around South Africa as possible and you partnering with us assists us in achieving this goal” says Tanya Jackson (Regional Manager: Smile Foundation).
