Charity for a cause

Warm response: Issac Mathai, Suja ,Carlos, George and Rena.There was a golf tournament that was held earlier in Bangalore to raise money for Christel House, a not-for-profit organisation that helps kids around the world ‘break the cycle of poverty and become self-sufficient, contributing members of society’. This was followed by a gala dinner to felicitate the winners and raise awareness about the reach and activities of Christel House which was very well attended.
“Charity events are relevant today, tomorrow and in the future because they have become a firm fixture in our social calendars. Along with providing a vehicle to raise awareness and funds, they create a much-needed workload for various specialists in the catering and entertainment industry,” said one socialite who makes her presence felt at most events in the City.

The evening was well attended by many prominent golfers of the City as well as their families and friends who graced the event to extend their support and to contribute towards cause of underprivileged children. The winners of the tournament were felicitated and this was followed by an evening of fellowship and interaction.
“It is wonderful that RCI started this global initiative of the ‘Christel House Open’, an international charity golf tournament. It has since become a well patronised and popular tradition attended and supported by sportspersons and socially aware folks in the City,” said Raju Shahani of Christel House.

“Two objectives must be reached for a successful high profile charity event of this nature — raise awareness and raise funds while creating a practical and memorable event,” added Indur Hirani, one of the organisers.

And going by the warm response from the gathering, the targets were well achieved.
