The annual corporate social responsibility Golf tournament – Dutch Open 2018 – hosted by the Dutch Business Association in Vietnam (DBAV) on November 30th has raised over VND 97 million to assist not only one but two charities this year. The charities supported by the event were none other than Peerke Donders Stichting which provides financial support to projects in the field of Leprosy control in Southeast Asia and Lien Doi, an organization that provides aid to people that live in the most remote area of Vietnam with the majority being of ethnic minorities.

The event was taken place at Song Be Golf Course, Binh Duong with the support of over 30 sponsors and partners, UniGolf is a Media Partner. The event was able to raise funds through sponsorships, auctions and raffles sales. The number of participants attracted by the event this year exceeded a respective number of 120 participants.

Tradition, Dutch society and caring for one another, the three points described what was taken place. This tournament is an amazing tradition, a Dutch tradition that has grown over the past years with Participation from the private sector as well as Vietnamese companies growing rapidly. The conclusion basically is that we are having a great time playing Golf but also taking care of the community.

It has been a tremendously successful night where the attendees not only opened their wallets for their greater good but also their hearts. We as a foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank the business community on behalf of everyone that will be supported with the funds raised today”, shared by Mr. Carel Richter, the Consul General of the Netherlands in Vietnam.
