Kumul Petroleum charity golf helping the kids!
After a forced break due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the country Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited is once again hosting its annual golf challenges in Port Moresby and Lae.
Wapu Sonk, Managing Director of Kumul Petroleum Holdings said, “We at KPHL are more than happy to be once again hosting this event, today on the greens of the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club. It is great that we have received such a significant level interest from other corporate businese houses to join us in supporting this very worthy cause.”
“In previous years we have donated the proceeds from this event to the Life PNG Care NGO that operates in Port Moresby, and in a similarly this year, proceeds of the event will be donated to underprivileged and disabled children at various “Out- of-Home Care Centres” registered with the National Office for Child & Family Services in the National Capital District, Southern Highlands, Western Highlands and Enga provinces.”
Mr Sonk explained that the 3rd Annual Children’s Charity Golf Challenge would benefit centres registered with the National Office for Child & Family Services and that it appeared that 40 teams are expected to participate in the event at K3,000 per team. Also that other business houses had agreed to meet the costs of catering, entertainment and other event prizes.
“I would like to thank all teams who have agreed to participate and especially those companies who have made additional contributions including the Monian Group, Tuna Bay Resort, PNG Ports Corporation, Wasman, Airways, Travel Services, Pacific Architects, Kenmok Group, SP Brewery, Ela Motors, Paradise Food Company and the Tasion Group who have kindly donated a range of very worthwhile prizes.”
Appropriately, the guest speaker for the event is Simon Yanis, the CEO of the National Office for Child & Family Services, who explained the nature of the services provided by “Out- of-Home Care Centres” and the social problems that they are addressing. This ensured that all event participants were aware of how the proceeds for the Charity Golf Challenge would be used.
Mr Sonk concluded, “There has been fantastic cooperation between the management of the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club and the Kumul Petroleum working committee who have been kept really busy organising all the smaller details that ensure the success of an event like this, such as having St John Ambulance on site on standby, safety precautions, photography and media coverage.”
“ I also look forward to seeing many of today’s sponsors at the next event in Lae, February next year.”Back to News
