The Louis Trichardt SPCA team writes:
On Saturday, 24 March, we hosted our third annual SPCA Golf Day and it was, yet again, one to be remembered.
It was an early start with a full field for the day and the first 4-balls teeing off at 07:34 am. What started out as a misty morning turned into a spectacular sunshine day for all the golfers.
We are so incredibly humbled and thankful to each and every person who contributed in any way to help make our golf day such a huge success and one to look forward to on the yearly calendar.
Without the amazing support of our community, it would not have been possible.
First of all we would like to thank Louis Trichardt Golf Club for the use of their beautiful facility and for their professional and friendly assistance during the planning and hosting of our event.
Then, to all the players and sponsors of the day, we truly appreciate your time and generosity, we hope that you enjoyed the day with us and that we will be seeing you again next year!
Thank you to our local newspaper, the Zoutpansberger, for all your support and advertisements, not only for this event, but for all the articles and other publicity you so kindly always give us.
Then, to our Blouberg Animal Clinic and Red Roof Guest House for contributing towards our golfers caps this year and a huge thank you to Promo Place as well for the discounted rates; we truly appreciate your contributions towards this and adding that extra value to our golf day.
Please allow us to mention the following people and businesses who assisted in making this day such a huge success this year:
* Thank you to Stephan Gaigher for spoiling us with his delicious food once again - two mouth-watering pork-spits - and to Soutpansberg Golf Club for the delectable roasted chickens and vegetables for dinner, as well as the additional catering too;
* KFC for sponsoring all the halfway meals and for the jumping castle for the kids, we really appreciate it;
* Thank you to Rampie Gilfillan, the club Captain, for your assistance with the prize giving and arrangements for our event and a massive thank you to Sors Snyman for taking care of the very special items that we had up for auction; we truly appreciate your assistance and excellent expertise. Then a special mention and thank you to André Coetzee for making sure all those items went home with him as well! We truly appreciate the support; and

Congratulations and a special thank you go to Yolanda and Johan Cronje who were the conveners for this great event. You make an amazing team. We really appreciate everything you did and you can, once again, be extremely proud of this hugely successful event that continues to get bigger and better every year.
Then, our last thank you goes out to our SPCA committee, each one who helped make this day happen:thank you for all your hard work. It’s really an honour to be part of this passionate team and the best part is to know what these funds will mean to our animals and all other animals that need our help.
Thank you, Louis Trichardt, and our surrounding community for your continuous support towards our SPCA. Thank you for helping us to be their voice, helping us to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Your support and contributions will make such a huge difference in the lives of so many animals in need.
We hope to see you all again next year!
