Golf enthusiast in line for a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2015
In the build-up to the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2015, one of the key sponsors, AfrAsia Bank, is auctioning off a unique opportunity at the AfrAsia Bank Cape Wine Auction. A golf aficionado will get the chance to participate in the inaugural tournament’s Pro-Am event one day before this first ever tri-sanctioned golf tournament, involving the Sunshine, European and Asian Tours, to be played at the Heritage Golf Club in Mauritius from 7-10 May.
The prize will be auctioned off during this year’s wine auction event at Boschendal in Cape Town from 13 – 14 February. The AfrAsia Bank Cape Wine Auction is an exhilarating global showcase of South Africa’s finest wines. It is a renowned event on the local and international wine calendar which is held for raising funds to support educational charities for South African children living in the Winelands. To maintain complete transparency and ensure the sustainability of the projects it supports, the AfrAsia Bank Cape Wine Auction is governed by a Board of Trustees and audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
AfrAsia Bank will be offering an incredible and unique opportunity to play in the official Pro-Am of the prestigious AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2015. This particular lot also includes two business class return tickets from South Africa to Mauritius, including transfers in Mauritius, a six night stay at Villas Valriche on a bed and breakfast basis, as well as an invitation to the Pro-Am gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony. Villas Valriche, voted Best Golf Development and Best Safe Home in Africa in the International Property Awards 2013-14, is a discrete retreat offering a world of space, peace and privacy.
“We are delighted about auctioning off an incredible opportunity for someone to attend the upcoming AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. At the same time, this charity wine auction, a commitment of our philanthropic cause to education and social transformation, is a further step in our Corporate Social Responsibility approach to reinforce sustaining positive social development of the communities we operate in. I would like to encourage everyone to join us in our drive to make a difference in the lives of these children,” commented James Benoit, CEO of AfrAsia Bank.
