John Keells Properties (JKP) participated as a silver sponsor for the annual Dialog Enterprise Rotary Metropolitan Par 3 Golf Classic, highlighting its contribution over the years to the golfing community in Sri Lanka.
The fundraiser tournament -organized by the Rotary Club of Colombo Metropolitan in partnership with the Royal Colombo Golf Club- is not just a highly anticipated event on the golfing calendar, but also a means through which sponsors, organizers, and participants are provided with the opportunity to donate funds towards various worthy causes.
Through this sponsorship, John Keells Properties too, contributed towards COVID-19 PPE requirements and PCR testing, the Meth Sewa Foundation -a home for differently abled children in Thanamalwila-, Sunshine Games –a sports day and fun carnival for differently abled children from across Sri Lanka-, and the Caddies Children Christmas Party & School Books Project, where children of the golf club’s caddies are provided with school supplies for the year.
Myungock Jane Hong emerged as the Overall Gross Winner for the tournament, with Kathey Twenbold earning the title of Overall Nett Winner. Afflli Raheem, Somanath Fernando, and Muditha Premathilake, took winning spots at the A, B, and C Division games respectively, with Raja Nagalingam winning the Masters game and Yun Jeong Choi the Ladies tournament. Additionally, the Seniors cup went to Mohan Wikramanayake, and Kaya Daluwatte triumphed at the Juniors tournament.
