RealNet putts for charity

RealNet franchises in the Western Cape recently walked the talk when they joined forces to raise funds for the Paul Steyn Foundation.


Paul Steyn with members of the RealNet Western Cape team who hosted a golf day recently to raise funds for his foundation. In the back row, from ltr are John Knight, Chris Banham, Helenus Scholtz, Keith Searle, Paul Steyn, Juan Senekal, Riaan Smuts, Shawn Pieterse and Linky Louw. In the middle row are Melinda Greeff, Sheila Knight, Ingrid le Roux, Lindsay Knight and Remuna Brooker, and in front are Geoff Stroebel, Jason Jansen, Paul Matthews, Jacques Davie and Cornel Janse van Vuuren.

 
The group held its second annual golf day at the Kleinmond Golf Club as part of Steyn's fund raising efforts on behalf of children needing prosthetics.
 
Steyn, who lost a leg at age 13, raises funds by walking long distances and the recent golf day formed part of his 49,5km walk from Gordon's Bay to Kleinmond. He completed the two-day walk, which ended at the golf club, in 13 hours, 3 minutes and 26 seconds.
 
A total of 64 local golfers, RealNet agents and friends played a four ball alliance and all participants received prizes.
 

RealNet’s Helenus Scholtz presents Paul Steyn with the cheque for his foundation, which helps children who need prosthetics.

Various RealNet franchises in the Western Cape sponsored holes and their branding at each hole lend a festive air to the course, says Lindsay Knight of the franchise in Pringle Bay and Surrounds that co-ordinated the event.
 
"Paul Steyn is a fantastic and inspiring guy and it was a rare privilege to help him raise funds for a very worthy cause. Our franchise has 'adopted' his charity and will continue to support his efforts - and we hope that all participants on the day will do the same," she said.
 
The successful event culminated in a dinner where prizes were awarded and a cheque to the value of R8000 was presented to Steyn.
