MARBELLA’S Aloha Golf Club hit a hole in one last week when €37,000 was raised at the successful Butterfly Children Charity’s golf tournament and gala dinner.
Nearly 200 of the club’s golfers and an additional 200 guests attended the evening, June 6, where they were welcomed with strawberries and champagne upon arrival and accompanied by the TAPAS Choir.
On hole 8, players had a chance to ‘Beat the Pro’, PGA golf professional Ignacio Isern and later on enjoyed a complimentary picnic. Guests also tried their luck in raffle and auction bid, where bids reached over €7,000 for items such as a signed Ryder Club Flag donated by professional Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Players were presented with a souvenir photo taken of their team. The event concluded with a prize presentation held on the club’s terrace, followed by drinks, tapas and canapés.
Funds raised at the event will be donated to improve the lives of ‘Butterfly’ children throughout Spain who suffer from Epidermolysis Bullosa – an incurable, rare and terrible genetic condition that causes severe blistering to the skin, making it as delicate as a butterfly’s wing.
