The South African Institute of Security (SAIS) held its Annual Charity Golf Day on Friday 6th May 2015 at the impressive and challenging Gary Player designed Blue Valley Golf Club in Midrand. The event was fully subscribed with a field of 120 golfers ranging from top professionals to equally enthusiastic part-timers.
The beneficiary of the day was the Children of Fire charity which helps young survivors of burn injuries (whether by fire, chemicals, electricity or hot liquids) in Africa, and helps educate the communities in which they live, providing both prevention and cure. This is the third year that the SAIS event has supported this charity and some of the children were able to attend the evening prize-giving dinner to meet, and thank, the golfers and sponsors for their participation and generous donations.
SAIS chair, Dave Dodge, presented the prizes to the winning team of Aeonova, consisting of Ettienne Knipe, Chris Christie, Sasha Ash and Archie Cassim, and addressed the dinner together with fire survivor, 19-year-old Loide Ndemueda. Dodge praised event organiser, and former SAIS chairman, Reggie Marimuthu, the various sponsors and the Blue Valley Golf Club for once again making the day such a huge success in support of a charity which he described as “providing essential support for some of the most vulnerable children in southern Africa, which SAIS has been proud to be associated with for the past three years”.
