PIRELLI, a global leader in premium tyres, recently teamed up with motorcycle accessories specialists Givi Asia and five other corporations to raise RM53,898 to fund community and charitable work carried out by the Rotary Club of Ara Damansara in Petaling Jaya.

They achieved this great work by organising the inaugural Pirelli Rotary Charity Golf Tournament that featured a field of 128 players at the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club in Shah Alam, Selangor.

Rotary Club president Phoebe Wong attributed the success of the project to the close collaboration and the hard work of the organising committee led by chairman and club secretary Ling Tek Lee.

Ling said much of the funds raised came from the corporate sponsors and a charity auction at the dinner, as well as the entry fees from the tournament.

“Some examples of our projects include water and sanitation, literacy and education, food subsidies for students, youth motivation and leadership training and polio eradication,” said Wong.

The charity golf dinner was well attended by Rotary International District 3300 officials, led by district governor Dr Manohur Kurup, district governor elect Dr Baskaran Krishnan, district governor nominee designate Teoh Kwan Swee and assistant governor Johnson Wey.

A team from Pirelli and several Rotarians called on Pusat Jagaan Amal Asyura orphanage in Sungai Buloh to contribute provisions, Hari Raya clothes and hosted a buka puasa.

In another activity, Givi Asia and Rotary Club presented three bicycles and sundry provisions to an Orang Asli settlement in Kampung Bertang, Pahang.

For their generosity, tokens of appreciation were awarded to the sponsors, including Pirelli Asia, Givi Asia, Inta Bina Group, LHL Projects, Tamago and Trade Hunters.
