Home Gas putts in school support

The Captain Theo Bodden Memorial Golf Tournament has quickly become a popular event in the calendar for Cayman’s golfing community and Home Gas is very pleased to be this year’s title sponsor.

Now in its third year, the competition is a fundraising event that enables Triple C School to raise funds for the school’s on-going capital improvements. Proceeds raised at this event will go towards the school’s classroom modulers project.

Bodden Holdings, the parent company of Home Gas, has been involved at various sponsorship levels since its inception. The namesake of the tournament and founder of Bodden Holdings, Captain Theo Bodden, was also one of the founders for Triple C School.

Mable Richardson, Principal of Triple C School, confirmed details of the tournament.

“The tournament will tee off at the North Sound Golf Club on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, beginning at 1 p.m,” Richardson said. “Entry fees are $600 for a team of four or $150 per individual. Entry fees allow participants to compete for some excellent prizes in a putt-for-cash competition, the hole-in-one competition and a longest drive contest.”

Two vehicles will be up for grabs in the hole-in-one competition including a 2014 Toyota T86 from Vampt Motors and 2014 Kia from GT Automotive. The tournament is a four-person scramble accommodating up to 72 players in 18 teams; the tournament is open to the public and all are encouraged to enter. Companies and individuals are encouraged to sponsor holes with two types of sponsorship package available: premium holes (i.e. numbers 1,9,10 and 18) at a cost of $350 and the remaining standard holes cost $250.

Gregg Radley, General Manager of Home Gas, said that Home Gas is proud to be part of such a worthy cause.

“We believe it is important to give back to the community and what better way than to enjoy an afternoon of golf while raising funds for Triple C School,” Radley confirmed. “As Captain Bodden was a founder of both Bodden Holdings and Triple C, it gives us great pride to help raise funds to support their legacy and many worthy programs.”
