Konect Events ‘Putt’ on a Competition for Charity

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 13.20.26A LEADING North East events company is set to score a hole in one, after being chosen to deliver a major event next week.

Konect Events has been appointed as the organisers of this year’s annual Mayor of Sunderland’s Charity Golf Day on July 31.

And one lucky player could walk away with a £15,000 car if they are able to show their skill on the day.

The event, which will be held at Wearside Golf Club, will see teams of four take part in an 18-hole competition in aid of the Mayor of Sunderland, Councillor Barry Curran’s chosen Mayoral charities.

And if anyone is lucky enough to score a hole in one on the first hole they will take away an added prize – a Ford Fiesta Zetec donated by sponsors, Benfield Ford.

Gavin Brown, Group CEO for The Konect Group, said: “The Mayor of Sunderland’s Charity Golf Day is an amazing event and I’m absolutely delighted that Konect Events has been contracted to run it for 2015.

“It’s going to be a fantastic day and I hope that we are able to send one lucky participant away with a car, as well as raising money for a number of good causes.”

The Mayor of Sunderland’s Charity Golf Day, organised by Konect Events, will include tea, coffee and a bacon roll on arrival, a two-course meal after the competition and a raffle, along with the chance to win a number of additional prizes for achievements such as winning team, nearest the pin and longest drive.

The tournament itself will take the form of a Texas Scramble, whereby each player takes a shot before choosing the team’s best drive overall.  All four players will then take their next shot from that same location.

Money raised on the day will go to the Mayor’s chosen charities – Sunderland MIND, Sunderland Armed Forces Network and NDRC (North East Disabilities Resource Centre).

For more information, or to book a place at the tournament at a cost of £48 per person or £192 per team of four, visit www.getkonect.com/events.  Tee time is9.30am.
