The franchise joined with other companies to sponsor a Pro-Am golf competition to raise money for “helping children in need in the Algarve”.
Portugal News reported that the Pro-Am golf tournament raised more than €10,000 ($11,242) for the children’s charity Associação de solidariedade com as Crianças Carenciadas (ACCA), with 72 players taking part and competing for a trophy at the Portugal Masters played at Oceânico Victoria Golf Course, Vilamoura.
ACCA is a non-profit charitable organisation that assists disadvantaged children across the Algarve, and is “run by volunteers who raise funds to provide vital care and support to children with mental, physical and social needs”.
Wanda Crawford, President of the ACCA, said: “We feel privileged to be appointed the Official Charity of this year’s Portugal Masters and with the support of the tournament and the Tour Players Foundation, our ACCA team of dedicated volunteers will be able to change the lives of many underprivileged and disabled children in the Algarve.
“I truly believe that ACCA creates little miracles every time we impact the lives of these youngsters. With the support of our local community and spectators we are able to provide this amazing humanitarian work.”
