Although no golfer experienced the coveted hole-in-one at this year’s Rotary Club of Grand Cayman’s Mardi Gras Golf Tournament, many players walked away with great prizes and bragging rights.
The true winner, however, was the Bridge Foundation – the benefactor of the fundraiser. The Bridge Foundation is a nonprofit, nondenominational organisation dedicated to helping recovering drug addicts and alcoholics through their transition from prison, or treatment, back to community life. By establishing and operating an alcohol and drug-free halfway house, the foundation provides a haven for individuals to gradually work their way back to a purposeful life.
“The tournament was a huge success with 72 golfers participating,” said Tim Bradley, tournament organiser and director of fundraising for the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman.
The winner of the tournament was the Dart team, who won by a staggering spread.
This year’s tournament was sponsored by more than 21 individual companies. During the award presentation following the tournament, Sebastien Guilbard, president of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, thanked sponsors for their support of the tournament and also the teams of golfers who come back to the event year after year.
The tournament raised more than $4,000, which will go toward the operations of this much needed organisation.
