    The Golf Cup is New World Hotels & Resorts’ second sports-centered fundraising program, next to the successful Run and Raise charity fun runs which were held from 2015 to 2017. Through these initiatives, New World Hotels & Resorts is able to support and give back to local and global communities through a number of ways, including offering financial support to victims of natural disasters and educational opportunities to children, to committing to recycling and conservation efforts and providing career-enhancing training for all associates.

    “We are very pleased to announce that we have raised half a million pesos for the scholars of Springboard Foundation through the help of our sponsors and participants. This will enable these children to receive quality education critical to their future. New World Hotels and Resorts strongly advocates access to education, and it’s a pleasure to be able to do this while also creating camaraderie and be an instrument for change,” says Farid Schoucair, General Manager of New World Makati Hotel.

    With a team score of 64, the winning flight was comprised of Antonio Payumo, Javier Berenguer-Testa, Roberto David, and Raymond Lacdao. On second place with a team score of 68 were Vedit Kurangil, Diana Kurangil, Paul Carpio, and Jeff Green.
