Rotary Seaside Classic will raise funds for the region’s underprivileged youth
On October 26, 2013, Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside will host their first annual Charity Golf Tournament, The Rotary Seaside Golf Classic, at the Grand Coral Golf Course. The tournament, beginning at 8:00am, will be a “Texas Scramble” with a Gala Prize ceremony and luncheon following. Proceeds from the event will benefit Seaside Rotary Chapter ongoing programs and initiatives.
In its short existence, “Seaside” has partnered with and supported KKiS – Keeping Kids in School, Casa Yoliguani, a facility for young unwed mothers and mothers-to-be, and Christmas Dreams, an organization that provides Christmas gifts for children who would otherwise do without. The club has also worked together with the local Municipal government to spruce up a local park and recreation space. “While our countries of origin may differ, our common bond is a desire to “give back” to the community we’ve chosen to call home.” explained Seaside Rotary Club President Doug Morgan “The Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside is all about helping kids. The proceeds from this event will help us to improve the lives of many local children.”
The tournament organizing committee is making available a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Individuals and local businesses are encouraged to support this charitable event with monetary donations and by providing prizes for the longest putt, longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin contests. Sponsors will receive maximum publicity throughout the Riviera Maya in print publications, social media and of course at the tournament. This is sure to be an exciting event with excellent attendance providing excellent exposure for participating businesses.
