The Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club's annual Charity Golf Day in aid of Vereeniging Child Welfare was held at the Country Club on Friday 12 June. Despite the cold weather, golfers came from far and wide to support this worthy cause. Tee off started at 10:00 a.m. to avoid the early winter sunset. A great day's golf earned a group of lucky winners fantastic prizes such as weekends away at luxury lodges, hampers of goodies and vouchers from benevolent sponsors. Louw Riekert, whose second place secured him a weekend at the Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club, donated his prize back to the charity and in so doing raised an additional R 2 000 towards the organization!
The day ended with a spit braai dinner at the 19th hole with golfers' partners joining them for a wonderful evening out in support of a great cause. The Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club would like to thank Matthews Restaurant, Inyama Grill House, MV Communications, Riviera on Vaal Properties, Broderick Sports, Brandhouse, The Riviera on Vaal Pro Shop, Cloud 9 Golf, Diamond Corner, Sedgars, Liquor City, Model Bottlestore, ABI, Bakgat Musiek, Waltons and Vaal Gas for their generosity.
