It’s “all systems go” for our 60th anniversary commemorative Golf Challenge, taking place at the Durban Country Club on 10 May 2018.

Tafta Council Chairman, Wicus Jacobs, expressed the association’s gratitude at having received such widespread support from Durban Corporates who have registered teams to play and sponsored various holes.

“The support we’ve received is overwhelming. Tafta is working hard to go beyond the role of providing shelter and care for elders. I believe an opportunity like the Golf Day and other fundraising events is the perfect platform to encourage corporates and society in general to get involved with what we are doing,” he said.

Jacobs, who has been involved with the organisation for several years as a volunteer and now serving as Chairman, said he was proud of the range of services Tafta offered to the community.

“I have seen how communities have lagged behind in the protection and care of its elders and Tafta works continually to close this gap. As an organisation, we’re open to discussing partnerships with like-minded organisations, so that together we’re able to extend our outreach and expand our footprint further into communities of need,” said Jacobs.

The golf tournament, which will be a 4-ball format, tees off at 11am on Thursday, with proceeds from the event once again benefitting Tafta’s hot meal provision service, Meals on Wheels.

“Escalating food prices are a challenge and we are looking to communities and corporates to help us extend our reach to elders who are in need of care, by participating at the golf event or through sponsorship,” says Tafta’s Income Development, Marketing and Public Relations Divisional Manager Gail Samuels.
