Penina Hotel & Golf Resort support regional charities

Cheque donated to CRACEPThe impressive sum of €9845 was raised on August the 15th 2015 for two regional charities – CRACEP Portimão and Refúgio Aboim Ascensão in Faro.

86 golf players took part in the event and enjoyed a delicious gala buffet dinner, all with the aim of raising money for those in need.

Beginning the day on the renowned Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, players competed to win prizes during the charity tournament for competitions including top three net scores, the longest drive and nearest to pin.

After a day well-spent under the summer sun, players and spectators were treated to a cocktail before enjoying an exquisite gala dinner in the gardens of Penina Hotel & Golf Resort.
The awards ceremony followed, with an exciting auction, all of which combined to raise funds.

The two charities benefitting from the tournament were appreciative of the generosity of those in attendance and praised the initiative of Penina Hotel & Golf Resort. Refúgio Aboim Ascenção is an innovative, forward-thinking charity that is working to change the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected children… whilst CRACEP strives to provide support, rehabilitation and life coaching to young people with disabilities and learning difficulties.
The aim of the event was to assist the charities in purchasing materials and amenities necessary for their ability to function efficiently on a day-to-day basis. The organisations emphasized their need for initiatives such as the charity golf tournament in order to help them overcome the daily challenges they face.

Penina Hotel & Golf Resort have been honoured to host many successful charity events within the past few years, which mirror the sense of civic responsibility and the great commitment JJW Hotels & Resorts have to local communities.
