WUCT is delighted that Cadiz Asset Management has chosen to support WUCT once again as a benficiary of their annual Charity Golf Classic. In preparation for the event, two of the Emmanuel Educare learners (Sky-Li Harmse and Nwabisa Gcwabe) took part in a pre-event publicity photo-shoot at the golf estate.
The event, sponsored by Cadiz Asset Management, runs from October 30 to November 5, and is hosted at the premier Steenberg Golf Estate, Cape Town. The golf course, rated by respected periodical Compleat Golfer as among the top three golfing experiences in South Africa, boasts a host of illustrious members, including rugby heroes Francois Pienaar, Morne du Plessis and HO de Villiers.
The Cadiz Steenberg Classic has grown since 2000 from a one day tournament into a week-long, community upliftment event with a host of competitions that cater for a wide range of categories, culminating in the main championship on the final day. This is followed by a gala event and prize giving.
The CEO of Cadiz Asset Management, Frank Cadiz, said the funds raised will be donated to beneficiaries in the broader Steenberg community, viz: SARDA which provides disabled children with therapy through horse riding, TEARS, an animal rescue society, the Westlake Community Centre, the Steenberg Clinic and Caddy Programme and the Haemophilia Foundation.
“The Cadiz Steenberg Classic is an important social responsibility event which gives back to the community, impacting positively on the lives of people within the area in which we live and where we play golf,” said Cadiz. “If all of us do more by giving back, we’ll all be in a much better place.”
Steenberg’s Director of Golf, Ian Kennedy, said the event was unique: “All participants will be treated to one of the best golfing experiences available while at the same time they will all be giving something back to the community. And operationally, this event is run at the highest golfing standards possible.”
