The Kanoo Group on Golf Tournament: It’s for charity

The annual McDermott Charity Golf Classic tournament raises fund to support local charities

Dubai, UAE – March 25, 2013: The Kanoo Group supported a major charitable initiative as a Platinum Sponsor in the 21st McDermott Charity Golf Classic held on March 14, 2013 at The Els Club, Dubai Sports City. The organizers recognized the need for sports more than ever, combined with philanthropic focus which drew corporate clients for a challenging tournament.
Since its inception in 1992, this annual golf tournament has grown significantly and has received great sponsorship support from various local and international clients. Its goal is to raise funds for local charity institutions mainly the Dubai Center for Special Needs (DCSN).

The Dubai Center for Special Needs is a non-profit organization that provides the highest standards of service in specialized education and therapy for children with various disabilities. It is a caring environment, largely dependent on the generosity of the local communities and corporations.  Its aim is to provide each and every one of its students the key to a positive life, thereby "Lighting the path to a brighter future".
In the early eighties, the idea of establishing a Center to serve the needs of individuals with special needs took form. With an aim to raise funds, DCSN faces each day with a hope that more members of the community will step forward to offer their support.
McDermott Charity Golf Classic hosted a ‘Shrimp Boil’ in Dubai Offshore Sailing Club as an opening for the Charity Auction. It was followed by the golf tournament back at The Els Club. Teams were selected from various entries with the aim to balance the handicaps of all teams during the process.

The event ended with Awards Dinner wherein three team winners were presented with engraved trophies for First, Second, Third Place respectively; while prizes were also given for the ‘Golf Competition Hole Prizes’ for excellent performers in the 18 holes.
Mr. Bob Curtis, CEO - UAE & Oman graced the event on behalf of The Kanoo Group as a major sponsor.
