Charity golf event to tee off at Garden City

The Lighthouse Club of Phnom Penh, an international charitable institution with a well-supported social calendar, will organise a charity event at the Garden City Golf Club on April 5 to help poor university students get through their education.

The tournament tees off at 8am and the cost per player is $105, which includes green fees, caddy, breakfast and lunch.

The Lighthouse Club, which has its roots in the UK going back to 1956, was launched in the Cambodian capital not long ago, but it has already achieved some good results in local community welfare.

Last year, the club supported students from poor homes to graduate in architecture at the Royal University of Fine Arts. This year’s initiative aims at sponsoring students through their entire university course besides helping them with living expenses.

High on the club’s social agenda is to build toilets for 200 families in the province under a self-help scheme in which the families contribute towards the costs. Also on the anvil is a scheme to help families of workers in the construction industry in the event of work-related death or injury.

According to the club, all its members give their time voluntarily.
