Despite one of the most torrential storms in recent history and cancellation of Fridays play for the first time in 14 years, the recent 24th Pinmar Yachtsman’s Golf Tournament co-sponsored by Awlgrip, still managed to raise a phenomenal new record of €72,000 for its nominated charities.
Once again hosted at the Son Gual Golf Course in Mallorca, “The Pinmar” brought together over 100 companies, 90 volunteers and 364 golfers for the annual tournament which again culminated with the prize-giving dinner and Come Fly With Me Show.
This year’s winner of the somewhat rain-curtailed tournament, in the ‘Best Yacht’ category, was ‘SY Pro-rigging’ and the 826 guests at the prize-given evening kindly donated a further €13,000, via a raffle, towards the final fundraising total.
Nick Entwisle, Company Secretary, Pinmar enthused: “We never imagined that we could surpass last year’s exceptional fundraising. I would like to thank all the golfers, guests, sponsors and volunteers for their fantastic support and generosity.”
The money raised will go to several charities, which includes Yacht Aid Global, Allan Graham 4 Kidz in Mallorca, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Action Aid.
Once again to be co-sponsored by Awlgrip, the 25th Pinmar Yachtsman’s Golf Tournament has been confirmed for 9th – 12th October 2013. For more information, contact Nick Entwisle, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
