“Congratulations to all winners and thank you to all the golfers who participated and provided assistance. Thank you also to all sponsors/donors for their massive generosity, and to the PCC-NSW Board who worked hard in taking care of the players and also in ensuring that the event ran smoothly. The money raised will go a long way in helping victims of the recent typhoons get up from their losses” finally said Vangie Leones, the PCC-NSW director who painstakingly coordinated the whole golfing event.

Wishing all my readers a prosperous, joyful and safe new year 2021.
