Rotary Club of Cavite Metro
August 13, 2019, was a big day for the RCCM officers and members because of the overwhelming success of the 1st Rotary Club of Cavite Metro Golf Tournament for a Cause held at Eagle Ridge and Country Club in General Trias, Cavite. It was a very beautiful day with very good weather for golf enthusiasts.
PDG Joel Tinitigan, CP Ador Barrion, PP Kerwin Ferrer and Champion President Edgar Viloria did the Ceremonial Tee at around 7:00 am followed by a shotgun start.
To show our deep appreciation to all major and minor sponsors, the committee prepared tarpaulin for each sponsor placed in every hole. After golf, we moved over to the Clubhouse, welcomed by ChP Edgar Viloria before having a sumptuous lunch prepared by the club’s chef matched with Lechon and red wine which delighted the taste of the golfers and visitors.
After having lunch, it was followed by the giving of giveaways, raffle drawing of prizes and awarding of personalized rotary trophies with the assistance of SDG Kenneth Khoo, CP Ador Barrion and ChP Edgar Viloria.
The proceeds from the tickets and sponsors met our expectations to serve our worthwhile purpose of purchasing computer units for forty (40) Grade, 5 pupils, at Sangay Elementary School in Northern Samar and fulfill one of the 6 Areas of Focus of Rotary International which is “Basic Education and Literacy’
We would also like to thank friends and Rotarians who spent their day by way of supporting to make the event a success. The event was concluded at around 3:00 pm with group photos. Mabuhay ang Champion Team. Mabuhay ang Rotary!
