Over 80 golfers came out this year, many of whom take part year after year and we would like to thank all of them for their continuous support. Our congratulation to this year’s winning team: Francois Hubert, Steve Johnson, Tony Arata and I! A Wine Cellar, Kobrand and Dave and Sean from the Provo Golf Club, who helped to make our 15th year quite a success.” Director of Golf at the Provo Golf Club, Dave Douglas highlighted “This year’s Jadot Cup event was a record breaking fundraiser for the Provo Golf Club in its 15 years of operation.”
In conjunction with the golf tournament the Wine Cellar hosted its 15th Annual Jadot Cup dinner at Seven Stars, Grace Bay on Friday, 26th June 2015 with a No-Holds-Barred menu of delectable dishes, intriguing wines, and exciting surprises at every turn. The sold out event was enjoyed by all and a portion of the proceeds was donated to the TCAAF. A silent auction was held during the evening to raise further funds for the Youth Centre. Mr. Galmo Williams, TCAAF Patron, said “Kudos to Seven Stars’ team for an unforgettable food and wine pairing. Their staff’s professionalism and courteous manner was icing on the cake; A special ‘Thank You’ to our sponsors, who donated excellent prizes which inspired wallets to open eagerly. We would also like to thank the patrons that bid generously on the silent auction prizes knowing that it was all going to a worthy cause.
Dinner at Seven Stars
The weekend’s events not only helps to raise awareness of the TCAAF but also assists with funds towards its flagship project – the Edward Gartland Youth Centre in Downtown, Providenciales, which opened its doors 6 years ago. The Centre which caters to young people between the ages of 11-18 years old has had over 1600 young people registered.
Centre Director Roxann Wake-Forbes stated “We are especially grateful to all the local companies that lend their support to such a worthy cause every year. All of the funds we receive go directly towards various extracurricular programmes and projects for the young people who frequent the centre and the operational costs of the centre. Being able to make a difference in the lives of the youth in the Turks & Caicos Islands through the various programs, including volleyball, basketball, tennis, art & craft, computers and dance to name a few, is very rewarding.”
