Held at the popular Hermitage Golf Club near Dublin, the 12th BEN Ireland Golf Day helped raise awareness of the automotive industry charity plus a healthy €6,500, thanks once again to the generous support of Alphera Financial Services (BMW).
The Hermitage is a challenging course played in the past by such great names as Seve Ballesteros, Padraig Harrington and even Bing Crosby making the venue a major attraction for a host of teams representing the Irish Automotive Industry. A typical mix of sunshine and showers did nothing to spoil the enjoyment of the event for any of the four person teams who ‘rounded’ off their day with prize giving and a fundraising dinner.
BEN Ireland Honorary Secretary and BEN Life Governor, Con Dalton commented: ‘This event has become a key feature of our calendar in Ireland where we acknowledge that raising awareness of BEN would enable us to help many more of our industry colleagues in times of need. We are therefore indebted to our sponsors for enabling to us to offer such a high profile attraction as the BEN Golf Classic. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we have also been able to exceed the amount raised in 2012. Everyone involved in putting the event on is already looking forward to an even more successful day next year.’
