FIRST MARINO WORLD CUP
Preparations for the Second Marino World Cup roll, inspired by the 2020 Olympics: higher, faster, stronger.
But, players still talk of the First Marino World Cup at Club Intramuros Golf Course, November 10, with already 42 golfers in the initial launch.
Firstly, part of net proceeds shall help fund the Majayjay CSR Bridging Advocates (MacBridge), a new NGO focused on the life and family needs of marginal farmhands of Majayjay, Laguna, home to unique “Seafarers from the Mountain.”
Touched by the support, Organizer Lyn Bacani waxed lyrical:
“Thank you all, for the great support. I dared undertake the First Marino World Cup --- even if I don’t know much of the game as you do.
But how else will I learn, if not with your tolerance? It is relaxing talaga: slicing on the green, less hurting than slights of the heart.
Well, our morning produced winners. But no losers. Because if one misses the formal awards, one regains old ties. And earn new friends to cherish. As in HashtagBFF --- Best Friend Forever.
Please roll the happy mood, there’s more to cheer than jeer: in the Awards, the raffles and packages… drink and dance, with grace and gout.”
