Golf for a good cause


THE DEBRA-BUTTERFLY CHILDREN CHARITY is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its yearly Golf & Ball event on Saturday 16 September at the prestigious Aloha Golf Club.

For 15 years the generous community of Marbella have been supporting events like the golf tournament and making a difference to the lives of those suffering from Butterfly Skin throughout Spain.

Butterfly Skin is a rare, painful and incurable disease that causes extreme fragility of the skin. From the moment a baby is born with the condition they have blisters and wounds all over their body. Normal routines such as feeding or changing a nappy are complicated tasks for the parents and very painful for babies. Even a simple hug can hurt them.

Thanks to people’s generosity, over the last 15 years the charity has managed to fund a team of specialist nurses, a presence in Spanish public hospitals and participation in research studies.This year the charity is inviting everyone to continue making the difference by joining these unforgettable events.

The golf tournament will take place on 16 September and the ball on Sunday 17, both held at the Aloha Golf Club which is currently undergoing a dramatic overhaul and will be in pristine condition. The tournament is Stableford Individual, with a half way snack provided, over €10,000 worth of goodies up for grabs, prizes on every hole and a prize giving cocktail at 8.30pm. All available for the Early Bird Special price of €80 per person if booked before 31st August or €85 after.

The ball will take place on the breath-taking terrace of the club’s restaurant where diners will have a chance to savour a delicious 3 course dinner with wine and be captivated by music by Mr Maph and Simone Lisa and the charm of compere and singer Ricky Lavazza. Tickets are €60 if booked early and €65 after.
