BFN’s ‘Tee-off for Hunger’ sets goal to provide 750k meals through golf fundraiser


THE Bahamas Feeding Network (BFN) yesterday announced plans to host their second annual ‘Tee-off for Hunger’ Golf Tournament to raise enough money to provide 750,000 meals this year.

Fidelity Bank will continue as title sponsor of the event with Better Homes and Gardens MCR Bahamas hosting the tournament on September 19th at Ocean Club, Paradise Island.

Chief executive officer of Fidelity Bank Gowon Bowe said: “This is really important, the support and the actual participation even more because it adds to the credibility, it adds to the welcomeness of the event and organisation and so from that perspective we are certainly proud to have our flag flown.

When we think about 64,000 meals being provided, when we put that in the context of us being 400,000 people,that gives us a sense of what the deal is, so this is one of those where, despite our prosperity, we have to remember that we are our brother’s keeper and whilst we can’t do it all, helping hands light work.”

The tournament, a two-man scramble, will have a maximum of 62 teams with players’ handicaps set at 24 maximum per man and 28 per woman. Winner prizes include a Mercedes Benz provided by Tyreflex in conjunction with Insurance Management.
