Organized by Pepsico Vietnam, the event aims to raise funds to build an infirmary in the impoverished commune of Ia Dom, Duc Co District, in the Central Highland’s province of Gia Lai. Proceeds from the tournament will also go towards a program called “Nghia Tinh Truong Son” (Sentimental Attachment to Truong Son Road) supported by Sai Gon Giai Phong.
Pham Phu Ngoc Trai, chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pepsico Indochina turned deputy chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Golf Association and Management Broad, said the 8th annual event also aims to express gratitude to the company’s customers and partners.
The tournament is expected to attract around 240 local and foreign golfers.
