The club will open gradually.
Wednesday, June 3, 2020 - 15:23
The lockdown is now in its 10th week and although we hope to get some good news regarding golf, the club will open gradually. It will be quite a while before we can operate on all cylinders again. It is also uncertain when our vulnerable workers i.e. caddies and casuals, will be able to return. Our fundraising initiative during April worked very well due to your unbelievable generosity.
We raised more than R200 000, which enabled 22 families to survive and thrive (in comparison) during the past 9 weeks. Although there is still about R30 000 left in the fund we anticipate the support will have to continue for a little while longer.
For this reason, we would like to launch a second fundraising initiative to support vulnerable workers associated with our club. This time we wish to team up with the world-renowned wine farms we are so fortunate to be associated with. To get this started, we have received an incredibly generous offer from Jeff Grier at Villiera. Jeff will make his wine available to members at farm prices. Twenty-five percent (25%) of every sale will be donated to the club for our vulnerable staff fund.
Other wine farms that may also wish to join up with our considerable membership base in support of this cause, will be welcomed. Orders for Villera Wines can be placed on the price list included (which also requests delivery details) and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org. A minimum order of six bottles is required for delivery purposes. The farm will however invoice you, as a member directly and will deliver the wine, at no fee, to your address. (Free deliveries will only be for those staying in the area. Sorry for our international members.)
