(VEN) - The Hong Kong Business Association Vietnam (HKBAV) will organize the Times Square Charity Golf Tournament 2019 on November 8 in Binh Duong Province.

This event, held at the Song Be Golf Course is the 4th HKBAV annual charity golf tournament since the association launched the “Enable Learning Impart Knowledge” initiative. All net proceeds of the tournament will be donated to The Library Project, Tra Leng Boarding House and other ad hoc requests.

The Library Project aims to establish libraries and reading corners in schools in rural Vietnam to improve children’s literacy. HKBAV has committed to donate 3 libraries over a period of 3 years from 2019 to 2021. This year, the association has voted to donate VND99,955,900 (USD$4275) for a reading room at the Thanh Đức Primary School in the eponymous commune, Long Ho District, Vinh Long province. The school has 785 students and 19 teachers.

Tra Leng Boarding House serves an important function in the commune of the same name. Socio-economic conditions are bad in the commune. Poor households account for over 80% of the commune’s population. The local school has around 320 students. In 2018, much efforts were put into raising funds for a new boarding house, and HKBAV decided to donate VND75,000,000 (USD $3,300) to add a bunk bed system to the integrated boarding house serving ethnic minority students.

For other ad hoc requests, HKBAV supports CSR efforts of its members and member organizations with funds as long as they meet the general objective.

This year, the “Times Square Charity Golf Tournament” event is being held as 4-Ball Scramble competition. The

“Award Ceremony Dinner” will be held at Becamex Thu Dau Mot Hotel, Binh Duong province.

The cost of tickets include a buffet lunch at Song Be Golf Course; refreshments during the tournament; welcome

drinks & appetizers before dinner; the Award Ceremony Dinner at Becamex Thu Dau Mot; and tournament prizes.
