SATURDAY 16th April is a “BLUE DAY” at the Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open to raise awareness of Autism during the month of April.
Under the auspices of the Sunshine Tour, Golden Pilsener and the Zimbabwe Open, there will be a fund raising initiative where for a donation of $5 you can register and predict the name of the winning Professional and his final score.
Spectators are encouraged to wear something BLUE in colour on Saturday and to visit the Pathways Autism Trust information tent which is situated between the 9th green and the 1st tee.
Flora and Gordie Chinhaire, who are Trustees, will be available to answer any of your questions about children on the Autism spectrum, and the work they are doing to try and establish a Centre of Excellence for education and therapeutic care of children affected by this condition in Zimbabwe.
The global statistic for the prevalence of autism as cited by the Centers for Disease Control(“CDC”) is 1 in 68 – so the chances are high that you may know a family who have been affected by this condition.
Predictions will be recorded at the Pathways Trust information tent and will close as the final group tee off on Sunday 17th. The winner/s who have a combination of both the correct name and final score will receive a share of 20% of all monies raised.The more people who support this drive, the bigger the prize purse will be.
NOW, THAT’S SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY……Share this with all your friends and family and bring them to Royal Harare.
