The “Helicopter Ball” was also a huge success and helped raise more money for the foundation.
The annual fundraiser has become a must attend event for many a corporate as a way of acknowledging how The Golf Foundation appreciates their contribution to the cause. A cross section of people have been approached and whether it is cash or barter, they have been very generous with a strong belief that TGF is making a difference to the society irrespective of background with a few stories dominating the golf space over the country.
