Abbey Real Estate “score above par” for Praxis Care!
The third annual Praxis Care / Abbey Real Estate Golf Classic at the Hilton Templepatrick Town and Country Club was a fantastic success.
After enjoying a late morning brunch, and being presented with a goodie bag including tray bakes made by Praxis Care Conlig Work Skills, the golfers teed off.
Once the teams had started, there was a special Praxis Care service user competition sponsored by Bank of Ireland and run by Eamonn Logue (Director of Golf at the Hilton Templepatrick Town and Country Club). Service users from Praxis Care schemes from throughout Ireland took part. The top service user awards went to Jessica McGowan and Noel Haughian.
Once the teams returned from golf they were treated to a barbecue in the Kinahan restaurant.
Fred Ashton (Managing Director – Abbey Real Estate) says:
“Abbey Real Estate was delighted to run the Golf Classic with both the day and the night being a great success. It was a pleasure to be involved with the event and support the fantastic work of Praxis Care and I am looking forward to next year’s Golf Classic. It was particularly rewarding to have Praxis Care service users involved in the Golf Classic.”
Paul Collins (Assistant Director – Fundraising and Public Relations – Praxis Care) says:
“The Praxis Care / Abbey Real Estate Golf Classic is one of our main corporate fundraising events in 2014.
It marks the third year that Praxis Care has worked with Fred Ashton and Abbey Real Estate on the Golf Classic. This partnership shows what can be achieved by the voluntary sector working in partnership with companies.”
