This event, which took place this Sunday, saw the participation of 61 golfers from the islands
Golf Ibiza has presented a cheque for the value of 3,000 euros to the Ibiza and Formentera Against Cancer Association, IFCC, as a result of the funds raised during the “World Cancer Day” Charity Golf Tournament that took place yesterday at its facilities. This event featured the participation of 61 golfers from the islands who completed a 10-kilometre course over 18 holes.
The first place in ‘Category A’ went to Emilio Solera, with 39 points, while the first place in ‘Category B’ was claimed by Anders Falk, with 44 points. In second place in ‘Category A’ was David Cardona, with 38 points, and Tania Mandrella in ‘Category B’, with 39 points. In the ‘Best Lady’ category, Mercedes Bonet, with 35 points, won this prize.
The IFCC Executive Committee wanted to thank Golf Ibiza, the Consell Insular d’Eivissa, and the Town Halls of Santa Eulària des Riu and Sant Josep de sa Talaia “for their support and the opportunity to spread our work with sports events like this.” The Regina Restaurant, which participated as a sponsor of the awards ceremony, and Choco Party, the company responsible for providing refreshments to the golfers during their game, were also sponsors of this event.
Ibiza and Formentera Against Cancer Projects for 2024
Throughout 2024, Golf Ibiza will host various charity golf tournaments in aid of IFCC, including the one taking place on the 11th of May with the celebration of the Helen Watson Memorial, which will be held in honour of its president for more than a decade, as well as the ‘Sunflower League’. “We created this league in honour of Helen, because these were her favourite flowers,” explained Gail Fear, a member of the IFCC Executive Committee and organizer of these sports events.
The funds raised from this and other events will be allocated to projects such as providing more medical supplies and chairs for the oncology and radiotherapy rooms at Can Misses Hospital, as well as continuing to promote the colon cancer screening project to improve the low annual participation figures, which have only reached 24% of the at-risk population.
