Janouras Custom Designs Limited team of Anthony Hosang and Adrian Sampson will be out tomorrow to defend its title at the 19th annual Scotiabank Foundation’s annual Charity Golf Tournament at the St Andrew’s Golf Club in Moka, Maraval.

Hosang and Sampson will be challenged by teams from 39 other corporations including last year’s second-place finisher, Rentokil Initial in an event themed “Tee Off for Women’s Wellness”.

The 40 teams, comprising two players each, will take to the course from 11 am in a competition devised through the partnership between Scotiabank Foundation and the St Andrew’s Golf Club for the last 18 years.

For the second straight year, the Scotiabank Foundation will be donating the proceeds of the Golf Tournament to the Family Planning Association (FPA) of T&T.

Last year, FPA received $100,000 towards their efforts in promoting women’s health and wellness. The FPA provides a number of services to women, including contraception, pap smears, voluntary counselling and testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases and breast examinations, consistent with the Scotiabank Foundation’s mandate of supporting women and engaging women in the community.

In 2016, tournament proceeds went to the T&T Cancer Society, towards their Community Cancer Screening Clinics in Mayaro, Matura and Moruga.
