12 Jun Our support to the Butterfly Skin association at the golf tournament in Marbella
“We have two hands, one for receiving and one for giving”: these are the words of the professional golf player from New Zealand Michael Campbell, a contributor to the event.
Very pleased to have supported the charity golf tournament to help Piel de Mariposa, held at the Aloha Golf Club in Marbella on 4 June and the charity dinner also held at the Aloha Golf Club restaurant on 5th June. The funds raised will enable this national association based in Marbella to continue working to support and improve the quality of life of families with Butterfly skin in Spain.
About € 37,000 were raised at the Charity Butterfly Children Golf Tournament and Dinner 2016, with more than 200 participants and more than 300 awards given in raffles, auctions and tournament winners.
Our firm Pavés and its flagship product Shankla by Paves sponsored the 5th hole. Shankla by Pavés awarded the best classified in this hole with a Shankla pendant, a Shankla bracelet and a bottle of champagne for the best classified.
The golf tournament winner was Steve Richardson, who was coincidentally the winner in Hole 5, and therefore received the Shankla bracelet, the Shankla pendant and the bottle of champagne
The pieces chosen for the occasion were Shankla® White Love (mother of pearl) in yellow gold, both for the pendant and for the bracelet.
In addition, Pavés donated:
• for the raffle, a ring from the “Sunrise” collection in white gold with citrine and diamonds (Gerry McKeown won the bit paying € 1,500 for it)
• for the auction, a gauge-type watch of the brand Giuliano Mazzuoli. (the winner was John Jackson, who was excited with his prize, as he said he had not won anything in his life and he found it incredible to have won such a fantastic prize).
Pavés and Shankla by Pavés participated among a hundred companies sponsoring the event and aware of the needs of the association and their families who helped raise 37,000 euros thanks to the generosity of Marbella.
This is the 14th Edition of the Tournament and Charity Dinner “Butterfly Children” for the Butterfly Skin Association (DEBRA), which has become an anticipated event each year in early June in Marbella. The event brings together a cast of companies and personalities of Marbella, as the event is the result of a collaborative effort of many individuals and organisations.
“We have skin as fragile as the wings of a butterfly, but we are as strong as a lion”.
