Annual charity golf tournament returns

The Rotary Club of Barbados West in partnership with Diamonds International will be again be staging the  highly anticipated Diamonds International Rotary Club of Barbados West Charity Golf Tournament.

For the first time post-COVID-19, 16 teams will tee off at Royal Westmoreland Golf Course from 1 p.m. on Sunday to compete in this annual event which has raised in excess of  $2.5 million, allowing the club to support several notable causes such as the refurbishment of the Paediatric Ward of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Managing Director of Diamonds International, Jacob Hassad, said he was glad to see the return of the competition which had run for 18 consecutive years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The partnership between the Rotary Club of Barbados West and Diamonds International in supporting the annual golf classic exemplifies the power of collaboration and community spirit,” Hassad said.

“Together, we are driving positive change and making a lasting impact in local communities. As we tee off for a worthy cause, we aim to create a brighter future for those in need. We express our thanks to all partners and contributors who have joined us on this journey of compassion, camaraderie and philanthropy as we swing for the greater good and continue our efforts to impact lives and build stronger and better communities.”

The tournament, which was conceptualised and initiated by the Rotary Club of Barbados West in partnership with Diamonds International, has helped pay for the enhancement of the Medical Intensive Care Unit and the establishment of the Renal Dialysis Unit.

The proceeds will support the work of the Nature Fun Ranch as well as help identify and provide support for students with dyslexia, a common learning disability that remains largely undiagnosed in Barbados.
