)-- HotelTravel.com is sponsoring a unique hole-in-one competition worth 1 million baht (US$33,300) to benefit ‘Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation’ at the upcoming PhuketProperty.com Pro-Am on Friday 5 November.
Any lucky amateur golfer able to score a rare ‘ace’ on the 167 yard 14th hole at Blue Canyon Country Club could redeem the prize at any property offered via HotelTravel.com’s massive network of hotels worldwide.
This marks the third major Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative benefiting Thai children that HotelTravel.com has participated in during 2010.
In March HotelTravel.com was a Gold Sponsor of 'Race to Survive Phuket 2010' with proceeds going to Accor Hospitality's Yim Kids Foundation which is dedicated to improving the social well being of Thai children in Phuket, Chiang Mai and Bangkok.
In April 2010 HotelTravel.com was a major sponsor of the annual Child-Watch Charity Golf Tournament organised by the British Business Association- Phuket, marking the eight consecutive years HotelTravel.com supported the event. Child-Watch Phuket provides full-time care for more than 70 underprivileged school kids who have been abused and maintains a day care for children whose parents are incarcerated.
HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey, said the company was delighted to be a part of Phuket’s first ever charity Pro-Am golf event.
“It truly is a worthy cause because the charity educates underprivileged Thai children in Phuket, giving them the opportunity to study in English and expand their employment opportunities. The Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation’ has been doing outstanding work giving back to the local community and we are proud to support their efforts,” Mr Dombey, said. “Plus we believe the format is going to be great fun for participants and prove attractive to both Thai and foreign media.”
