As the year draws to a close, golfers and corporates are again set to come out in full support of the annual Engen Charity Golf Day, and help raise much needed funds for the Burns Unit at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. Staged on 3 December 2013, the event will once again take place at King David Golf Course.
Now in its 5th year, the Engen Charity Golf Day has become a firm favourite with local business. Engen once again appeals to all corporates to join us in making a difference to young lives harshly affected by burn trauma. The much needed funds raised will go towards programmes that focus on pain management and the re-integration of young burns victims into society.
The Burns Unit at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is the only specialised burns centre treating children in the Western Cape. It is also the only dedicated, specialist paediatric burns unit in Africa, treating approximately 3000 patients with burns injuries every year on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
The Engen Charity Golf Day is a culmination of Engen’s on-going support of the Children’s Hospital Trust through their sponsorship portfolios. Engen Soccer’s ‘Goals for Charity’, Motorsport’s ‘Racing for Red’ and Cycling’s ‘Ride for Red’ initiatives have all contributed to the funds raised for the hospital burns unit.
“Through our various sponsorship initiatives in Soccer, Motorsport, and Cycling, as well as the valued support of business participating in the Engen Charity Golf Challenge, funds raised will go towards changing the lives of young burns victims. For this we thank all who have contributed in making a difference and for your on-going support,” said Brad Bergh – Engen Group Sponsorship Manager, Engen Petroleum Limited.
