Thank you for your interest in Mellon Educate and for your support as we continue our work as a positive force for change in the education sector in South Africa.
Given all the obstacles thrown at us during the past year, we are even more proud of what we have achieved during this time. Not only have we ‘pivoted’ to meet the needs of children and their families in the township communities we serve, by providing food parcels for over 250,000, but we have also continued to honour our commitment to education by helping with the renovation of a primary school near Khayelitsha impacting 1100 children, as well as completing our first commercial school building project in partnership with the Western Cape Government. In short, we’ve learnt some valuable lessons in challenging times, not least that things can change at any time, but our wins have more than compensated!
To date Mellon Educate has, with the help of over 26,000 volunteers, built/improved 32 schools, thereby helping 50,000 children to a better brighter future. To build on this success, we proudly invite you to our Mellon Educate Golf Day Fundraiser 2021.
Taking place on Thursday 14th October at the prestigious Sunningdale Golf Club we are organising a very special day during which we hope to raise much-needed funds to support our Mellon Educate Literacy Programme, which is making a real difference to our primary school children, helping them to reach their full potential.
Join us and a host of sporting talent for a fantastic day’s golf, where you and your guests will play with an international sports icon to compete as a team of 4 on Sunningdale’s historic Old Course. The day includes a relaxed champagne breakfast, complimentary use of practice facilities, followed by a 9am shotgun start. On course team and individual skills prizes to be won, to support the inevitable competitive spirit that will no doubt be settled at the 19th hole!
A traditional Club lunch will be served, during which some of our sports stars will keep you entertained with amusing and inspiring tales of winning, losing and learning in professional sport. An auction offering the chance to win some really special prizes and one-off experiences will follow.
Places are limited so please take a look at the booking form in this e-mail for more information and to secure your participation in what promises to be both a fun and very memorable day.
We do hope you can join us!
