Annual Charity Golf Day 2015

The SAVRALA Annual Charity golf day enjoyed excellent weather at the Johannesburg Country Club on the 25th of February 2015 and unlike the previous year where rain soaked the players and the game had to be cut short, this year’s event almost broke all previous records. More than 80 golfers, playing in teams of four, competed in perfect conditions on a course in excellent condition. 80 golfers sat down to an excellent meal with Michael Scholz keeping order as master of ceremonies. The raffle and auction were very well supported and more than R72,000 was raised for the chosen charity.

The SAVRALA President, Marc Corcoran, thanked the members for their continued support of this worthy cause, he thanked the club for giving the event the courtesy of the course. Many of those participating had been involved with the event over many years and its continued success was due to their unwavering support. He thanked all the sponsors once again for their generous giving which resulted in a day of fun and fellowship. The chosen charity organisation that will benefit is The QuadPara Association of South Africa. QASA’s function is to serve quadriplegics, paraplegics and the disability sector in general, in whatever capacity its members find most constructive. The organisation aims to assist people with mobility impairments to lead independent lives with a decent standard of living, in areas ranging from personal care and assistive devices to adequate skills development and employment.

Ari Seirlis, the CEO of QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) gave a heartwarming speech on his organisation and thanked SAVRALA for choosing QASA. Marc Corcoran gave feedback on the Leasing Section and advised members of the imminent changes that will take place within SAVRALA. He spoke briefly about the continued collaboration with the automotive sector on legislative issues affecting the industry.

SAVRALA thanks all those involved and looks forward to continued participation and support.
