US billionaire Bob Parsons announced to give $100,000 to sponsor the Swing for the Kids charity golf tournament co-organised by the Ministry of Planning and Investment’s Foreign Investment Agency, Vietnam Investment Review, and BRG Group.
At the gala dinner organised on November 16 to announce the winners of the Asian Golf Awards 2017 in the central city of Danang, billionaire Bob Parsons affirmed to support Vietnamese children in poverty via the annual charity golf tournament, presenting $100,000 as his first gesture.
Parsons added that he will provide an additional $100,000 for another charity programme organised by BRG Group.
Parsons is known as the founder of GoDaddy Inc., a US publicly traded internet domain registrar and web hosting company. Besides, he was a marine of the US Army and came to Vietnam in 1969. Returning to Vietnam after 50 years, he wants to do meaningful things for the country.
“I regret not coming back to Vietnam sooner. I will try my best to help poor Vietnamese children to have a better life. The $100,000 is only the first thing that I can do,” said Parsons.
According to Forbes, Parsons current worth is $2.7 billion.
2017 FLC Vietnam Masters champion Andy Chu Minh Duc has confirmed to join VPGA to defend his title. This event from December 19 – 22 at FLC Quy Nhon Golf Links.
Two years after the Americans thought they had their Ryder Cup problems figured out, Europe reminded Sunday them why it has owned the trophy for most of last quarter-century.
The event is open to all Sky Lake members, golfers from Vietnam and around the world.
