Why You’ll Love the Latest Ingane Yami Charity Golf Tournament

Here at Tenerife Magazine we are passionate about supporting positive causes, such as charitable organisations that are doing important work. One such charity is Ingane Yami Children’s Village located near Durban in South Africa. Their fantastic mission statement is to rescue children, rebuild families, restore lives, release leaders. 

 

This amazing charity is closely supported by Pearly Grey Ocean Club, who help to raise funds through the generous donations from the staff and guests. Over the years those working and staying at the resort having formed a strong interest in helping Ingane Yami provide support to as many children as possible.

While there is still much to do in South Africa for underprivileged children, the vital work that the charity does is a huge step in the right direction. Another very important way that Pearly Grey helps to raise funds for Ingane Yami is through the annual charity golf tournament.

The first tournament was run back in 2010 and it is now we have the 9th edition of this tournament for you to look forward to. If you’ve never played in the tournament before we can guarantee you will love it and of course if you’ve taken part in previous  years, you know you can expect a brilliant day. Since 2010 the tournament has grown and grown in popularity and status, now being one of the most eagerly anticipated on the Tenerife golf calendar.

 

While of course this is a competition, it is all in good spirit to support a great cause, so while everyone who enters is playing to win, it is also a lot of fun for all involved. The tournament will once again be held at the beautiful Golf Costa Adeje course in the south of Tenerife. As it will be held on June 23rd there will be almost guaranteed gorgeous sunny weather so remember to bring sun screen!

During the day there will be a selection of great snacks and drinks. Then, following the tournament, there will be a delicious lunch and a raffle and auction with some absolutely fantastic prizes on offer! This is definitely one golf event you do not want to miss out on. Not only will it be a whole lot of great fun, but also raising money for an excellent cause. All funds raised are donated to the Ingane Yami Children’s Village.

Big Success for this year’s Ingane Yami Golf Tournament!

For the past eight years Pearly Grey has organised an annual charity golf tournament to raise funds for the incredible Ingane Yami children’s village. Every year this popular tournament proves to be a big success among both the players competing and their families and friends watching, and this year was no exception.

Each year there is a large amount of money raised for Ingane Yami which does vital work supporting and caring for orphaned children in South Africa who would otherwise have little hope. At this year’s tournament there was over €22,000 raised which will be put to fantastic use!

The charity houses the children in a loving, caring environment and gives them a real chance to lead a wonderful life by providing accommodation, food, clothing, healthcare and education. Most of these children have had heart-breaking starts in life, but with the help of Ingane Yami they can look forward to a successful  future.

Everyone was in good spirits for this event, enjoying a great day out among friends and colleagues. Of course it didn’t hurt that the tournament was played at the gorgeous Golf Costa Adeje course! This year was the fifth consecutive year that the tournament has been held at the course and once again it proved a brilliant experience.

The weather was absolutely perfect, with a bright blue sky, plenty of warm sunshine and only a light breeze which helped keep the players cool. The course was immaculate, making playing conditions excellent for those competing.

On the day there were over 100 competitors, with players from Tenerife, the UK and South Africa, and it was great to see such a large turnout for this charity tournament, supporting such a worthy cause!

Once again the team at Pearly Grey did a wonderful job organising this tournament, in conjunction with the friendly and professional staff at Golf Costa Adeje. We would also like to mention the excellent work that  Oasis FM and the Canarian Weekly have done helping to promote the tournament.

This event is now firmly established on the Tenerife golfing calendar and is only expected to become bigger and better each year! Following the end of the tournament there was a prize giving buffet dinner which everyone enjoyed after their time out on the course.

Teide’s Benevolent Shadow Offers Hope To African Orphans

How do you celebrate the anniversary of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania? Dougie Kirkwood found his challenge close to home. Mount Teide may be a lot shorter at 3,718 metres but picking an unfashionable and direct route presents its own challenges for the December 11th assault.
The inspiration behind this latest adventure is the Ingane Yami a village for children orphaned by AIDS in Durban, South Africa, a charity championed by Pearly Grey Ocean Club in Callao Salvaje on the west coast of Tenerife where Dougie is Sales Manager. Dougie enjoys the fit sporting life that Tenerife offers and has harnessed it to do his bit towards the 50,000 euros target to build one of the 25 houses that will make up the African village.
Speaking before a champagne farewell for some of the hotel’s guests Dougie was pleased to have added 450 euros just from the sparkling goodbye. “This is typical of our guests, they have been generous in backing all our events and especially with sponsoring me for the Teide challenge.”

Dougie will set off at 4am from the coast of Callao Salvaje having already sussed out most of the route. ” I’m taking a direct approach, that means crossing the motorway, clambering across ravines and scaling a few rocks and obstacles. I will have a few people backing me and have arranged permits for the final assault on the peak (Teide National Park is strictly protected). The route takes us to the Corona Forest above Vilaflor but we have a few break points arranged for food and drink. The toughest section will be Las Moraditas by the TF21, it gets very steep in a short distance there.”
Those who have experienced the glory of Teide at close quarters will know that a spectacular reward awaits the climbers. “We are staying overnight at the Refugio Altavista for an early morning on Sunday 12 December to complete the last few hours to arrive at the peak for sunrise over the clouds and the other 6 islands. The whole trip should take between 24 and 30 hours and we are hoping to raise around 5,000 euros.”

At least Dougie and his exhausted crew will be able to put their feet up when they arrive back in Callao Salvaje, won’t they? Not a chance, on the evening of Sunday 12 December a Gala fund raising evening will take place at Pearly Grey with many top performers from around Tenerife pushing the charity total to a new peak. There are 120 tickets on sale at 25 euros each including a dinner dance. If you want to book contact Pearly Grey or click here to sponsor Dougie.
Hopefully the weather won’t add any extra challenges to the Teide climb but Dougie will be prepared for the worst and will be driven on at each step by the support of his sponsors and the thought of those children who desperately need a home offering hope.
