In the ladies' division, Vita played an almost bogey round to best UP's Abby Tumbocon by 3 strokes.
However, it was the UP alumni who figured prominently in the fun category with Tom Firme and Ruby Cortes earning the most prolific golfer awards in their respective divisions. This only shows that UPians definitely know how to have fun!
We were honored by the presence of Bella Cenezero, Program Director of Parent Support Services (PSS) Society of BC, who was very appreciative of being chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the tournament. During the awards ceremonies, Bella talked about the activities of PSS and emphasized that the funds raised will go a long way in supporting the Filipino families’ circle of PSS.
QE Club Manager Vicky Goodwin was also very pleased to have been given the opportunity to host our golf tournament and looks forward to having more events from UPAABC in the future.
The tournament was made possible by the sponsorship from Ruben Versoza, Dwelling Place (c/o Aurel/Ching Muego), Vancity (c/o Ruby Cortes), Tony Somera, and Nestor/Evelyn Navasero.
Special thanks go to Gigi Cagampan and Fe Alluri for taking charge of the logistics, prizes and refreshments. Big hand to Jun Esquejo for being our official photographer and to Del Gachallan for manning the registration table. Kudos to Ruby Cortes for soliciting giveaways, Evelyn Navasero for lending a hand with the refreshments and Nezz Navasero for organizing this tournament!
