THE PINMAR CHARITIES 2016

THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED IN THE 28TH PINMAR GOLF FOR YOUR FANTASTIC SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION

This year's event had 320 players and collectively all of you, along with your friends and guests and our wonderful sponsors and hard-working volunteers, raised a magnificent figure of €81.000 for the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund which is a new record and takes our total over our 28 years to €843,000.

The hire of buggies, golf clubs and trolleys, along with the bars on the course and on the terrace and the lunch in the clubhouse, helped to raise nearly €25k over the two days. And this figure included the windfall from the buggies which, due to the heavy rain just before the event, we were unable to use so, once again a very big thank you to Sturge, our loyal buggy sponsors who had already paid for them, and to all the players who had rented them - as always not one person asked for their money back.

The brilliant teams selling raffle tickets over all three days (the Superyacht Charities at the golf course and the Pinmar Team at the dinner) raised a very impressive €18,600. Huge thanks to you all for buying so many tickets and also to everyone who bid so generously in the silent auction (organised as usual by James Marsden of Impulse Decisions) and the live auction (with prizes generously donated by Adaris Global, GAC Superyacht Services and Nicky Clarke). Special thanks to Jotun for a very generous donation of €10,000 and to Alan Dale of Burgess and the International Yacht Brokers Charity Golfers Association who once again very kindly decided to add their total of €5,220 to our fund.

As always the funds will be shared across a wide range of causes both here and abroad including: Joves Navegants, Handisports, Tyume Valley Schools, Allen Graham 4 Kidz, Sail 4 Cancer and Serve-on. Also, thanks to the winners of the 2015 event Mylin IV, who also won the right to nominate the beneficiaries of half of this year's fund, this year's new beneficiaries will also include the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc - Philippines.

So thank you again to all our golfers, guests, organizers and volunteers for your continued support and generosity and to all our Birdie, Eagle, Albatross and Condor sponsors without whom the Pinmar Golf would simply not exist.

Dear Friends,

Just a few lines to give you our deepest gratitude for the donation we have received from the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund. Handisport Foundation is a private non-profit organization held in Mallorca since 2007. Our main goal is to promote social insertion through sports for people with special needs. During theseyears we have developed several inclusive activities that can be done for people with disabilities and their relatives or friends.

The sports we offer are: sailing, blokarting, kayaking, waterskiing, diving, golfing and hiking. All of them with special equipment and accessible facilities. Thanks to your donation, we will continue the sailing program during 2016 in different ways: the Competition team in Hansa 303, the Summer School (for local children with disabilities) and the Sailing accessible school that we will start in May. We will dedicate your donation to repair our equipment for sailing which is essential for our organization so you can imagine how important your help is for us.

I would like to emphasize our thank you and hope we will continue working together in the future.

And remember, enjoy your abilities.

Yours faithfully,

Cristina Martin Ortega
President of Handisport Foundation
