American Chamber Thanksgiving Golf Tournament 2022
Known as the most awaited event this year, AmCham (American Chamber) collaborated with Habitat for Humanity Indonesia charity partner to help survivors of the Cianjur Earthquake that occurred on November 21, 2022.
The Golf Tournament to commemorate Thanksgiving 2022 took place at the Emeralda Golf Club – Cimanggis, on November 24, 2022. The event attracted 148 enthusiastic players to participate in the tournament. The event started early in the morning with a delicious breakfast. The golfers used it as an opportunity to meet and chat again after a gap of 2 years. The event started when the sky was clear and the sun was shining bright, making the golfers excited to play and compete to be the winner.
After the match, the players were treated to a thanksgiving lunch provided by one of the sponsoring partners. The lunch event was also used to announce the winners and to auction exclusive items prepared by AmCham. The auction aims to raise donations from golfers to help the survivors of the Cianjur Earthquake who urgently need help clearing the rubble of houses that were heavily damaged or collapsed.
During the auction, a donation of IDR 44,000,000 (forty-four million rupiahs) was collected to be handed over to Habitat Indonesia. The donation will be distributed to help survivors of the earthquake. This donation is a form of the golfer’s concern for the disaster victims. Hopefully, this can ease the burden on our brothers and sisters in Cianjur to recover soon and live a normal life again. This tournament is also a testament to AmCham’s concern for many souls.
