Daffodil golf gets Lae launch

The National, Friday July 15th, 2016

THE 2016 Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge for Lae is on again.
The event was launched with a hefty K50,000 sponsorship from foundation sponsor Oil Search Limited and Lae-based Mapai Transport Limited, who contributed K25,000 each.
This is the sixth year that the event will be hosted to support the work of the PNG Cancer Relief Society in Lae. It will be held in Lae on August 19.
Angau hospital in Lae is the national referral centre for all cancer patients in PNG.
The PNG Cancer Relief Society works very closely with the medical practitioners at Angau to compliment the work that the medical professionals do.
The sponsorship covers the hosting of the event whilst 100 per cent of the funds raised from the event go directly to the PNG Cancer Relief Society to assist their work.
Speaking during the launch at the Lae Golf Club last Friday, Oil Search PNG communications manager Ruth Waram said Oil Search was a proud sponsor of the event as the funds raised would go a long way in the fight against cancer in PNG.
Waram said Oil Search joined in the fight against Cancer in PNG 14 years ago, through the sponsorship of the annual Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge in Port Moresby, working together with the Cancer Foundation of PNG.
