Desert Springs had been selected to host the Grand Final of the ‘Sir Ian Botham Charity Golf Classic Series’ from Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th October 2009, as announced previously. All Desert Springs home owners and members have been sent a letter, with an event application form, from Sir Ian.
The aim of the event is to raise funds for Leukaemia Research. Festivities commence on Thursday evening with a Welcome BBQ at the Crocodile Club, followed by the announcement of the competitor’s draw sheet and live entertainment.
On Friday evening, El Torrente restaurant will be the venue for the Celebrity Gala Dinner including entertainment. Guests will also have the opportunity to bid for some very special and unique items at the “What Money Can’t Buy!” Auction.
Owners and members not competing in the event are cordially invited to take the opportunity to attend either or both the Welcome BBQ Evening and the Celebrity Gala Dinner Evening. Tickets are available to these charity events at 45€ and 75€ a ticket respectively, on a first come first served basis; they can be purchased at or by contacting the Clubhouse Golf Reception.
There has been a positive response already from those wishing to participate in the golf event itself and bearing in mind the overwhelming demand for the social functions at the event the previous two years, we would urge all wishing to have some real fun and enjoy the social functions this year to purchase their tickets now before they are sold out!
