For the second consecutive year, avid golfers from The National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) spent a day golfing for charity and raised S$200,000 for the NUS Alumni Bursary Fund at the NUSS Golf Annual Drive.
NUS President, Professor Tan Chorh Chuan took to the stage to receive the S$200,000 cheque amid enthusiastic cheers and applause. In his opening address at the Della & Seng Gee Guild Hall at Kent Ridge Guild House, a very pleased Professor Tan shared that with the “incredible leadership of NUSS”, he was confident the funds would continue to grow and be put to good use.
Professor Tan further expressed his gratitude to NUSS members for their support to these needy students. He looked forward to their continued support in 2015 which would mark the 115th anniversary of NUS and the 50th National Day of Singapore.
To round off the exciting day of golf, which saw 144 golfers tee off at the Tanah Merah Country Club’s Garden Course, a celebratory dinner was held at the NUSS Kent Ridge Guild House.
Members and guests concluded their festivities with a thrilling auction for a pair of Business Class tickets sponsored by Qatar Airways. The winning bid of S$12,000 will also be donated to the NUS Alumni Bursary Fund, bringing the total donations raised this year above the S$200,000 mark.
