19th Annual Jadot Cup Raises $16,000 For Turks & Caicos Aids Awareness Foundation (TCAAF)
On Sunday, June 2nd, ironically nineteen teams took part in the TCAAF’s 19th Annual Jadot Cup as this year it enjoyed another rowdy crowd creating fun for all in attendance many of whom stayed late into the evening at Fairways Bar & Grill in an effort to change their scores while discussing golf swing theory. Eventually clear-headedness won out as Jadot Cup Chairman and TCAAF Director Terry Drummey announced that “The 19th Annual Jadot Cup was a great tournament resulting in a “funtastic” event which featured an amazing Friday dinner at OPUS Restaurant. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support!” Congratulations to the winning team members; Tony Garland, Mike Flynn, Gervin Simons, and Tom Adams. Terry then added, “An additional special thank you to all the companies that donated and to The Wine Cellar, Opus, Provo Golf Club with all their staff members who again made the weekend a huge success.”
Each year the Jadot weekend helps to raise awareness of the TCAAF and assists with funds towards its flagship project – the Edward Gartland Youth Centre in downtown, Providenciales. The Centre is open to young people age 10-18 and has registered an impressive 2000 plus youth. Funds raised by TCAAF assists the Youth Centre with their various extracurricular programs for the many who frequent the centre. Making a difference in the lives of the youth in the Turks & Caicos Islands through the various programs, including volleyball, basketball, tennis, arts & crafts, computers, and dance to name a few, is very rewarding. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our silent auction and hole sponsors at the 2019 Jadot Cup. This combined effort made it a huge success.
