Association to hold 10th charity golf tournament


KIWANIS International (Kiwanis Malaysia) Petaling Jaya branch has chosen the Gift of Life Society as the main beneficiary of the association’s 10th Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday.

The society helps poor students, orphans and children with disabilities below 16 – which is also part of Kiwanis’ concept of “Serving the Children of the World”.

The golf tournament will be held at Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam (Public Service Commission Golf Club) in Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, from 6.45am to 2pm.

Kiwanis International has organised various charitable activities in aid of welfare institutions, such as Kiwanis Down Hold Children’s Centre (Kiwanis Down Syndrome Centres), the National Kidney Foundation, Malaysian Association for the Blind and various orphanages.

Kiwanis Malaysia’s Petaling Jaya branch was recognised in 1995 as the “Most Outstanding Club”.

The Gift of Life Society will be organising “Together We Are One Charity Dinner” cum ‘MRGJC QUEST Show on Nov 21, from 7pm to 11pm at SJK (C) Yuk Chai in Taman Megah, Petaling Jaya.

The main purpose of the event is to raise funds in aid of community members who are in need of medical equipment, lightweight wheelchairs, medical cushions, motorised wheelchairs, three-wheeled motorcycles, custom-made shoes and monetary assistance for old folk’s homes and children’s welfare homes.

This is also to raise awareness of the plight of the less fortunate and provide them with the necessary support to help them find a suitable job and be self-sufficient.

Gift of Life Society president Wendy Chan said they were excited and grateful for being selected as this year’s beneficiary of Kiwanis PJ’s charity golf tournament.

“This strategic partnership combines the strength of both sides in implementing social services to support the mission of getting the general public to understand, love, care for and support these vulnerable groups,” she said.
