The 13th annual London Supply Trophy Golf Tournament, organized by the London Supply Group Foundation, has raised a new record high of US$809,276 for charity. The event this year took place at Club del Lago Golf in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

The monies raised at this year’s tournament will be used to continue with the works already begun by the Foundation at the Elderly House San Ramon, in Puerto Iguazu, specifically to improve its infrastructure and technology equipment.

A portion of the funds will also be used to build a Rehab Center at Marta Schwartz Hospital, in Puerto Iguazu. The Center will provide treatment, rehab, housing, and emotional support to children and adolescents with different conditions, together with their families.

“The decision to build this First Comprehensive Rehab Center in this region is framed within the spirit of the Foundation, which is to contribute to the full exercise of disabled rights, which were consecrated by the International Convention on Disabled People’s Rights and which have been recently introduced to the Argentine National Magna Charta,” says the London Supply Group Foundation in a statement.

“Thanks to the sports spirit and solidarity shown by all players, as well as the support by the sponsors who support the Foundation year after year, the London Supply Group Foundation was able to collect [this] epic record amount,” which was above expectations, says the company.

The schools currently provide education for more than 1,200 children.
