GOLFERS SWING IN SUPPORT OF STRONGER MARRIAGES AND FAMILIES
128 golfers gathered on 11 July at Laguna National Golf Resort Club to hit a hole-in-one for families in Singapore at the Focus on the Family Singapore’s Charity Golf event. The annual event seeks to raise funds in support of Focus Singapore, who do preventative and upstream work to divorce-proof marriages and nurture resilient parent-child connections to raise stronger youth and young adults.
At the meaningful post-event appreciation dinner, golfers and guests received affirmation and encouragement to intentionally invest time and effort in their marriage. Gracing the occasion was guest-of-Honour, Mr Seah Kian Peng, Member of Parliament for Marine Parade GRC
and Chairman of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Social and Family Development. He shared: “I started supporting Focus
on the Family Singapore in 2015 and it is heartening to see the good work it has achieved over the years and how the organisation has grown. And this year, we also see a successful leadership guard of the CEO.” “On a personal note, this year marks my 35th wedding anniversary, and like all relationships, it requires a lot of giving and taking. This said, giving is a real blessing.”
With thanks to the corporate sponsors, generous donors and golfers who bought flights, over $191,000 was raised to fund programmes and initiatives to help families. This was Focus on the Family Singapore’s eighth Charity Golf Tournament, with Auto Servizio Italia Services (ASI) as it’s Hole-In-One sponsor. Managing Director, Eric Sim, shared, “Auto Servizio Italia’s foundation is strengthened by the timeless principles of family values and serves as the driving force behind every aspect of our company’s mission.
With a sense of pride, we extend our sponsorship to this extraordinary event in partnership with Focus on the Family, aimed at making a positive impact on society, and cultivating our future generations.” Chairman of Focus on the Family Singapore, Mr Tony Soh, remarked, “While families are not perfect and family life can be unpredictable and chaotic at times, a loving and nurturing family environment can be a safe sanctuary across life stages and provide many moments of deep joy and holistic richness, even as we navigate through life and its many winding paths.
“As Focus Singapore sharpens our strategies and double down on our efforts to strengthen marriages, deepen parent-child relationships and
cultivate the next generation of family champions, we are committed to work together with the government and our valued partners to build a brighter future for Singapore.”
