CNBC AFRICA CORPORATE GOLF CHALLENGE RETURNS TO RAISE MONEY FOR MEDIA BURSARIES
Sandton based CNBC Africa, a leader in business and finance news on the continent, held its annual Corporate Golf Challenge, on October 12, at the Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg.
As an ongoing commitment to the ABN Education Trust, CNBC Africa raised funds through the event to support students from previously disadvantaged backgrounds in pursuing a degree in media and commerce or business journalism.
Once again, the event attracted a high caliber of attendee from both the public and private sector, making for excellent networking with a round of golf, all for a good cause.
“Many of the students go on to take up an internship with ABN, be it with Forbes Africa or CNBC Africa, giving them practical experience in a media environment.”
– ABN acting Managing Director, Sid Wahi
The day was managed by the groups events company, ABN Event Productions.
“We are proud to produce this annual golf day. It is a real honour to be a part of such a prestigious event which provides an excellent networking opportunity for all our corporate clients. We look forward to hosting many more events of this calibre in the future.”
– Head of ABN Event Productions, Alexander Leibner
Golfers walked away with prizes from DStv (HD Explora’s) and MOOV Now devices amongst other exciting items, whilst the evening auction boasted a trip to 5 nights’ accommodation Long Beach Hotel in Mauritius, a queen sized Tempur bed system, a luxury supercar experience and a hot air balloon safari.
The event was proudly sponsored by Group Five Motlekar.
