Huge turnout for Nteseng Chuene Golf InvitationaL
Scores of people turned out at Randpark Golf Club on 20 September when Tammy Taylor Mrs. South Africa Finalist Nteseng Chuene hosted a Charity Golf Day event to raise funds to support underprivileged women.
Tammy Taylor Mrs. South Africa is a national beauty pageant for married woman that, aims to share true South African stories and to empower women.
All Tammy Taylor Mrs. SA Finalists have a contractual responsibility to host an event in order to raise funds in support of Women4Women, which is an official charity for Mrs. SA.
“In honour of the Women4Women non-profit organisation,” Chuene said, “I chose to host a charity golf day and I called it Nteseng Chuene Golf Invitational, aiming to raise funds, make a difference & change the lives of underprivileged women and girl children.”
Well known Celebrities and professional golfers such as the likes of Jimmy Tau, Andrew Corthing and Bella Modisha amongst other attended the event. Hlompho Maseko was the MC of the day. Incredible performances by Lady Zamar, Lioness and Mahlatze Vokal kept the audiences captivated and celebrating.
Tammy Taylor Mrs. SA journey has been such an empowering tool, said Chuene.
“I have evolved in a positive way,” she said. “I have achieved things I never thought I would, such as hosting a successful event to raise funds. It was not easy, but I learned that determination and perseverance goes a long way.”
The journey has also taught me that running your own race is very important, she said.
“Sometimes it can be a lot, and you need to let yourself off the hook, and just do good and be sure to keep your Grace, peace and joy” she said.
She said she wants to establish her Impact Foundation nationwide if she goes all the way and win the beauty pageant competition. “The foundation thrives in providing both educational and job opportunities to underprivileged women by equipping them through training and mentoring towards their studies in order to strive for their independence. The foundation has produced 3 female graduates trained more than 20 females and pays registration fees to at least 8-10 female students yearly.”
People who attended the event expressed their happiness.
“The event was very fantastic,” said Women4Women speaker Cathy Heaton. “ I’ve been attending Mrs SA Finalist events for the past 5 years and tonight is without a doubt one of the most exceptional.
From the support she has received, to the fashion show, to the auction, the incredible entertainment and beautiful venue! Nteseng Chuene is definitely worthy of our support.”
It was an absolutely amazing golf day, said Andrew Corthing. “It shows that we are growing the game of golf in South Africa. It is a great thing to see women getting involved.”
