GOOD START FOR ‘GOLFEN MIT HERZ’ IN EASTERN EUROPE
Penati happy to have the season’s first international charity event for children with cancer
The foundation Golfen mit Herz is an organisation, which helps families of children with cancer in a lot of European places since more than 10 years – an effort that has been supported by World of Leading Golf for some time. This year the association had arranged for the foundation to start its first tournament oft he season in Eastern Europe at a WLG member club, namely the Penati Golf Resort.
For this inaugural event a selected number of guests from Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Czechia were warmly welcomed to play the impressive Legend Course. The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and expands across 95 hectares offering fascinating landscape views and some unparalleled holes, amongst them the longest hole in Europe. So it was a challenging and rewarding game for the Golfen mit Herz-teams who played under perfect conditions and equally perfect weather.
Almost as if willing to match with the sunny skies, the atmosphere was relaxed and everyone was happy to have helped in collecting a full 15.000 € (including the donation from the European Foundation to support needy children and youths with cancer to the benefit of parents of children with cancer) A sum that Penati Golf Resort Manager Jan Tomas gratefully accepted and handed over to ‘Dobry Anjel‘ – the good angels – who help and financially support families of children with cancer in Slovakia.
