Steval Pumas Golf Day raises R15 000 for Pumas Kidz
The Steval Pumas Charity Golf Day is always a highlight on the side’s social calendar, and players, coaches, sponsors and supporters all contributed to another fantastic day on and off the golf course this year.
Held at the Nelspruit Golf Club on Friday, the light-hearted competition not only saw the winning teams walking off with generous prizes from the sponsors, but also raised R15 000 for Puma Kidz, a primary school rugby development programme founded by Steval Pumas player Hoffman Maritz.
“Thank you to everyone for joining us today. It is very humbling to see all the effort and support you went to be here. A big thank you to all our sponsors and to the Nelspruit Golf Club for hosting us and always supporting one of the most special days on the calendar,” said Pieter Burger, CEO of Mpumalanga Rugby PTY LTD.
The R15 000 for Pumas Kidz will be used to start a tag rugby tournament in the province for 2017, and to sponsor much needed training equipment.
BestDrive Nelspruit won the award for Best Sponsor Hole, winning a cash prize of R4500 and a Vodacom 2.0 3G Tablet.
All of the day’s participants left the event with a Pumas 2017 calendar and 18 eggs from Heidel Eggs.
