Smart wins charity golf fund-raiser
IGNA SMART was the overall gross champion when Pro-Shottas Football Club teamed up with TeleBarbados to host its inaugural charity golf fund-raiser last Saturday at the Barbados Golf And Country Club, Durants, Christ Church.
Smart shot a level par 72, beating out Cardinal Burnett, who shot 75, while Judd Cozier took third place.
For his efforts, Smart won a trip on regional airline LIAT and a crystal vase.
Frank Drakes also won a ticket compliments LIAT for winning the net prize and a hamper donated by Brydens for the closest to the pin on the par three No. 16 hole.
The event was held in aid of sending Pro-Shottas’ youth teams to Cleveland, Ohio, United States, in June to participate in the AC Milan Intercontinental Cup.
Dr Alexander JnPierre, the main organizer of the event, thanked the sponsors, participants and all involved in the event for their support and emphasized the synergies between the two sports – golf and football. He also cited the significance of corporate Barbados to the development of sport and youth.
Thanks to Super Centre’s donation, winners in various categories received well stocked hampers and there was also sponsorship by LIAT for tickets to any of its destinations.
The charity event received overwhelming success with participants eagerly awaiting next year’s event. (HG/PR)
