INTERNATIONAL professional golfers such as Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson attended the recent Sime Darby LPGA 2013 Charity Cocktail Evening held at the Sime Darby Convention Centre.
The event was also to raise funds for the Cancer Research Initiative Foundation (CARIF).
A private helicopter ride around Kuala Lumpur with Spanish professional golfer Beatriz Recari, as well as a professional golf clinic by American golfers Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis were among the packages that were auctioned.
A total of RM100,000 was raised during the event, which was attended by 600 guests.
Sime Darby Foundation chairman Tun Musa Hitam delivered the opening speech.
“The international players love coming to Malaysia and to me, this is an encouragement,
“In the past three years, about RM1.5mil has been collected via the tournament and used to provide subsidised mammograms for Malay-sian women and also to support breast cancer research,” said Musa.
