IN THE NAME OF CHARITY
While a great deal of fun is had, old rivalries renewed and new business connections made at the BCX Supersport Shootout, charity has, since the inception of the event 17 years ago, been at its core. The recipients may have changed over the years, but the event has proudly raised in excess of R26 million for worthy charities.
The Saturday night auction is always a highlight. Dave Usendorff got proceedings underway in his usual energetic and entertaining manner and soon had bidders competing for some desirable auction items. Donations to the auction included collectable wines from La Motte, Rupert & Rothschild and Leopards Leap, a dining experience from Anthony Rupert, a generous airtime offer from CNBC Africa and Primedia and a custom set of irons from Callaway and Odyssey. Beneficiaries over the years include The Gozololo Centre for Needy Children, Qhubeka, MAD Charity, the SAB Caddies Trust and the Legend African Foundation.
LIV Villages, a registered NPO, collected and distributed the funds raised for charity during the 2019 BCX SuperSport Shootout.
