ATHENS – The countdown has begun for the shipping community’s top golf tournament, the Greek Maritime Golf Event, to be held for the 5th consecutive year at Costa Navarino from June 8-9 and will raise funds for the non-profit organization Mazi gia to Paidi (Together for Children).
The 5th Greek Maritime Golf Event will help support Mazi gia to Paidi (Together for Children) in two ways: 1) During the shotgun scramble, to be held on the morning of Saturday, June 8, players participating in the tournament can offer the amount they wish to support the good cause. Specifically, golfers will be able to buy up to three extra efforts at the 10-hole Dunes Course. 2) During this year’s award ceremony participants will have the opportunity to contribute directly the amount they wish at the specially designed area. The amount to be collected in total will be given to the union of non-profit NGOs Mazi gia to Paidi in operation since 1996 and supports more than 30,000 children, on an annual basis, including more than 10,000 direct beneficiaries. Its main aim is to support children and young people in need, particularly those facing poverty, social exclusion, domestic violence, chronic diseases, mental or physical disabilities or the sickness or death of an immediate family member.
