Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta 18th Anniversary Charity Golf Tournament
As part of its 18-year anniversary celebration, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta hosted its first Charity Golf Tournament on 22 June 2012 at Rancamaya Golf & Country Club. The event provided a fun day on the greens and an opportunity for members of the business community, various associations, the government and Golden Circle Diamond and Jade members to mingle.
Proceeds from the event’s raffle tickets and auction were used to support the hotel’s charity programme under the umbrella of Embrace, Shangri-La’s Care for People Project, benefitting the As’syafi‑iyah Orphans Boarding School. Ten children from the school attended the event to represent their institution and entertained guests with a singing performance, which included a surprise rendition of Happy Birthday dedicated to the wife of the Chinese ambassador for Indonesia, who attended the event.
An array of prizes was distributed during the lunch, including Shangri-La hotels and resorts vouchers, smartphones and high-end gadgets such as luxury pens, golf drivers and caddie bags. Auction prizes comprised autographed sports memorabilia and travel packages on business and executive-class flights to Sydney, Istanbul and Paris, raising a considerable amount of more than US$18,000.
The 145 golfers were pampered with Shangri-La’s five-star service, from a sumptuous hotel breakfast and free-flowing champagne to massage treatments by after the game and an elaborate buffet lunch.
