José de Mello Golf Tournament raises €50,000 for Acreditar
The 1st José de Mello Golf Tournament held at Belas on April 3rd brought together more than a hundred employees and leading business partners of companies of the José de Mello Group, all of them golf players. The event raised a total of €50,000 (fifty thousand euros), including sponsorships, enrolment fees and other donations in kind, all of which reverted to Acreditar, the Association of Parents and Friends of Children with Cancer.
The idea behind the 1st José de Mello Golf Tournament came from several top managers of the José de Mello Group and it took the form of the Stableford Net Texas Scramble (pairs). A total of 116 players took part and the first prizes were won by António Purificação/Duarte Pereira (net) and Mário Marques Pinto/Luís Filipe Pereira (gross).
While the tournament took place on the 18-hole Belas course, about thirty other employees and business partners of the José de Mello Group interested in taking their first steps in the game had the opportunity to take part in a Golf Clinic organised by the golf pro, Keith Barret.
