Anfi Raises over €6000 for Local Children’s Charity
05/06/2012 - Anfi Tauro hosted a hugely successful golf tournament last Sunday for local charity, Pequeño Valiente – an organisation that supports children with cancer and their families.
Sixty-five players participated in the tournament which was followed by drinks and refreshments, an awards ceremony then a prize raffle and auction.
A large number of gifts were kindly donated by local businesses, as well as autographed football shirts from David Silva and Juan Carlos Valeron, helping to raise an impressive €6425 for this worthy cause.
Whilst the adults were busy with the merriment indoors, a group of excited children from Pequeño Valiente were having a fabulous time outside where they enjoyed the pool facilities and activities at the Anfi Emerald Club under the supervision of volunteers from the Anfi Entertainment Team.
It was particularly heartening to see the youngsters having fun in the pool since, for some of them, it was the first time they had been allowed to swim since starting their chemotherapy treatment.
Jose Luis Trujillo, Anfi Group CEO said, "It was a very special day filled with many emotions, in which we have done our best to support those most in need,"
Pequeño Valiente was set up by parents of children with cancer with the goal of providing all types of necessary support. The organisation is run by volunteers and is operated with the minimum running costs - meaning donations go almost entirely towards projects and not administration costs.
Anfi would like to thank all of the sponsors of the tournament for their kind donations and is delighted to continue its support of this deserving charity with a singing and dancing show planned for October this year.
