AMASA (the Advertising and Media Association of South Africa) is pleased to announce that the organisation’s golf day was a resounding success thanks only to the support from the media and advertising industry. The annual occasion took to full swing at the Parkview Golf Club last Thursday the 14th May. The day is organised with the key aim to raise funds for the AMASA Bursary Fund to help uplift the education levels and expertise of the media industry.
With a shotgun start the day kicked off with a bang and all teams were rearing to go in their Forbes Africa and AMASA sponsored Golf shirts. As always with AMASA events, the day was full of valuable networking, team comradery and a lot of on course action thanks to fantastic sponsors.
The field of 4 balls was filled by some of AMASA’s greatest supporters including; NAB, Central Media, Primall Media, Continental Outdoor, Adreach, Exponential, SABC, Vicinity Media, Advine, Boo Media, Freshly Ground Insights, Ads24, Ster-Kinekor, United Stations, Provantage, Radio heads Colour in Mail and Forbes. All of the action was perfectly captured by the CNBC Africa film crew and Trudon sponsored photography
Sponsors took hole activities to a new level. There was an engaging dart board competition with NAB and Habari on the 9th, spicy shots and a fantastic looking Transit TV minivan hosted by Provantage on the 15th, Trudon dominated the 5th, Zee World’s delicious Indian feast on hole 18 and finally an SAB watering hole at the end of the course to quench everyone’s thirst at the 19th.
The perfect day on the course would not be complete without the delicious dinner sponsored by the SABC and a very exciting prize giving ceremony, hosted by AMASA Chairperson Wayne Bischoff and followed by Forbes Africa goodie bags for all. The prize table was full of donated prizes from additional AMASA members which added to the hype of the elegantly decorated dining hall sponsored by In Any Event (Event Management).
With the huge turnout, superb support and exciting sponsorship activities, the day was an overall resounding success and AMASA was able to raise a healthy pot of funds for the fund. The monies raised for the Bursary Fund which aims to provide education, support and bursaries to up-coming talent in the industry and to provide an injection of this talent and skills back into the industry’s top agencies and media owners.
AMASA extends a big thank you to all those who entered and participated in and supported this year’s golf day and look forward to an even more heated competition and participation at the 2016 AMASA golf day.
