As was in the past, part proceeds from the Golf Tournament will go towards a RCGC nominated charity and the recipient this year is the Navodhya Foundation. The Principal Sponsor of the event this year was Future Automobiles (Pvt) Ltd.
Speaking about the tournament Suren Rajanathan, President of AmCham Sri Lanka said, “The AmCham Golf Tournament has been a tremendous success throughout 14 consecutive years. Over the past 14 years the funds raised from the tournament has helped and supported different charitable projects. We are pleased to partner with Future Automobile (Pvt) Ltd on the 15th year of this Tournament as they too make their mark in the automobile industry with a top of the range brand such as Ford.”
Mr. Suminda De Silva, CEO – Automotive Sector of SoftLogic Holdings PLC stated that Ford and Softlogic Group are privileged to be associated with both Amcham and RCGC. This was our first association with Sri Lankan golfing and a deviation from our traditional association with motorsports. We trust this will be a mutually rewarding relationship going forward.
