SJ’s inaugural charity golf event raises over S$120,000

elderly persons charity golf event support elderly yellow ribbon CSR

Surbana Jurong held its first charity golf event on 9 December 2015 (Wednesday) at Jurong Country Club. The inaugural event saw a turnout of 150 golfers who managed to complete their game on a sunny day!

The event was organised in support of Surbana Jurong’s adopted charities – St. John’s Home for Elderly Persons (SJHEP) and The Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP). A sum totalling slightly more than S$120,000 was donated to the two beneficiaries to support their efforts in caring for the displaced elderly residents and providing training and education for ex-offenders. SJHEP, established in 1958, provides shelter and care for the needs of elderly persons aged 60 and above, with no home or next of kin with adequate resources to care for them. The YRP, initiated in 2004, supports ex-offenders aged 18-30 in their reintegration back into society.

We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all golfers, sponsors and donors for their generosity and kind support in making this event a huge success! We hope to see you at the next Charity Golf!
