THE PINMAR GOLF CHARITY FUND

THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED IN OUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY PINMAR GOLF FOR YOUR FANTASTIC SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION, OVER €1MILLION NOW RAISED IN TOTAL!

The 2018 event had 288 golfers and collectively over 800 attendees across the three day event, who along with our wonderful sponsors and hard-working volunteers raised a magnificent figure of €92,065 for the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund which pushes the 30 year total beyond the €1million mark to €1,036,480. A very special way to celebrate our 30th year, so many thanks to you all.

The hire of golf buggies and trolleys, along with the course and terrace bars, the lunch in the clubhouse, the water station and the social competitions, helped to raise over €30k over the two golfing days. The brilliant volunteers selling raffle tickets over all three days raised a very impressive €17,810. Huge thanks to you all for buying so many tickets and also to everyone who bid so generously in the silent auction (organised as usual by James Marsden of Impulse Decisions) and the live auction (with prizes generously donated by Voly, Priva, Privatus Club, Seaking Group, Sovren and Mark Conyers). Special thanks to Alan Dale of Burgess and the International Yacht Brokers Charity Golfers Association who very kindly donated a huge total of €6,300 to our fund.

Through the charitable fundraising from the Pinmar Golf Tournament we have now raised over one million euros to date, which has been used to great effect supporting a host of worthy Mallorca based and also industry related charities. In the last year funds have been shared across a wide range of causes both here and abroad including: Joves Navegants, Fundación Handisports, OK Prosthetics, Tyume Valley Schools, Sail 4 Cancer and Serve-on.

Whilst we will continue to support such charities we have decided to introduce an environmental focus to our fundraising. Starting at this year’s 30th anniversary event we will apportion 25% of the fundraising to projects focused on marine conservation. We hope the Blue Marine Foundation’s involvement at The Pinmar Golf 2018 Gala Dinner educated and inspired you all to spark a movement for change within the marine industry.

So thank you again to all our golfers, guests, organizers and volunteers for your continued support and generosity and to all our Birdie, Eagle, Albatross and Condor sponsors without whom the Pinmar Golf would simply not exist.

Dear Nick, Peter and Team,

We want to say a very big thank you for the donation we received from last year’s event. It is very much appreciated and an association that we are very proud of. It means so much to us as a small charity that the Pinmar Golf has continued to support us and that the sponsors, supporters and guests appreciate our work and want to help us support the families who are in desperate need of a break.

We have seen a steep increase in the number of families referred to us over the past year and we are aiming to provide respite breaks for a record number of beneficiaries in 2018 to keep up with the demand. It is only possible because we have wonderful supporters like you and the generosity of this caring industry.

Thank you so much and we hope you have a very successful event again this year. Below is feedback we received recently from a family who has been on a much-needed break:

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We have just returned from a break that would not have been possible without the support of your charity. It allowed us time together as a family, away from appointments and thinking about cancer. We laughed a lot and spent quality relaxing time together which hasn't happened for a long time! We are forever grateful to you and the generous people who donate and make these valuable breaks possible. Thank you!” Jessica

Thank you!

Dear All at Pinmar,

It was with such joy that I received the phone call this morning, notifying us that Shambhala would be benefitting from the incredible work you all do in your annual golf tournament.

To hear from Nick Entwisle that the winners of the Pinmar Golf event, MY Zenobia, had included Shambhala in their allocation of charity funds, well that was just incredibly unexpected and massively appreciated. From all of us at Shambhala and especially the youths whose lives are so massively impacted, THANK YOU ZENOBIA for remembering us, for including us and for believing in us to make us one of your allocated charities.

Every year I actually pinch myself with the magic that has become Shambhala, I look at the youths who come to us for help and I watch them as they leave and enter employment, their lives irreversibly changed.

This year we opened up our doors to two young Syrian refugees, you can’t even imagine their hardship and how desperate they were to find support, and we increased our numbers from 20 to 25. Next year we will with any luck open up our first Shambhala centre so that we can help so many more youths and not limit our numbers.

When we open our Youth Centre there will be a little plaque specially reserved for Pinmar because we couldn’t have done this without your endless support. To the winners a special thank you and I hope one day you will visit our Shambhala Centre and feel great pride that you were part of this!

Thank you, all of you, so much.
