The fundraising initiative for the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa has already resulted in a significant contribution from the Pro-Am Auction Dinner at Mount Edgecombe Country Club on Tuesday evening.

A total of €6,215 was raised through the auctioning of various portrait photographs of Nelson Mandela and several other items, with the Sunshine Tour’s professional golfers also donating their Pro-Am prizes to the auction.

These funds, as well as all the funds raised through sponsorship revenue and ticket sales for the tournament, will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund as part of the efforts to raise money for the building of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital.

A total of € 17,462,500 has already been raised, which is half the amount required to start building what will be Africa’s largest children’s hospital.
