Scotiabank Partners with TCIFA To Host Its 12th Annual Golf Scramble
The mission of the Turks and Caicos Islands Football Association has always been to help the local community through its youth development football programs which are based on Providenciales, Grand Turk, South Caicos and North/Middle Caicos. With over 600 registered children there is a need for funds to fuel these programs. The 12th Annual Golf Scramble and Silent Auction took place on November 3rd and saw a new headline sponsor in the form of Scotiabank. Not only did they play the critical role as headline sponsor, but Scotiabank fielded a team led by Andy Dickson, Commercial Banking Manager, Scotiabank Turks and Caicos.
“At Scotiabank we believe in football!” said Curtis Knight, Country Head, Scotiabank Turks & Caicos. “Football has the unique ability to connect people all over the world. We also believe in the power of football as a vehicle for social change. We are committed to helping the communities that we serve to become better off. For this reason, Scotiabank is proud to support the Turks & Caicos Islands Football Association which engages youth across our islands giving them the opportunity to learn both football and the important life skills that team sports impart.”
The champion team of the day was comprised of Andrea Todd, Brooke Rivers, Blair Mason, and Dale Hodgkins who won in a tiebreaker with the net score of 54. Second place also at 54 was the team of Carol Brown, Chris Haggie, Mark Bowden and Simon Dobbs while third place was captured by Ernest Gardiner, Gervin Simmons, Marc Rawlins and Mike Flynn only a fraction back.
