12th Rafael M. Salas Golf Cup
For the past 11 years, the Forum for Family Planning and Development has been holding the Rafael M. Salas Golf Cup. On Nov. 8, the 12th Salas golf tournament will be held at Camp Aguinaldo Golf Club in Quezon City, with former President Fidel V. Ramos as guest of honor.
The Salas Cup is named in honor of Rafael M. Salas who is remembered as a patriot who dedicated himself to serving people in various private and government posts, most importantly, as the Filipino who created for the world a population program that centers on people and quality of life regardless of faiths and beliefs. For this, he served as the first Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with the rank of Undersecretary-General, and the first Filipino to make a mark in the pursuit of a sound population policy for all countries in the world.
At least 100 avid golfers are expected to play to support this year’s tournament with the theme “Early Child Bearing Teenage Pregnancy, a National Concern.”
The tournament is open to all amateur golfers for an entry fee of P3,500.00 which includes a donation to the Forum, a green fee, mulligan, golf balls, buffet lunch during the awarding, and raffle.
Entry verification starts at 6 a.m.
