Cellcosmet & Cellmen: Official partners of “Golf for Africa” - a charity event held on behalf of the Roger Federer Foundation
The very first GOLF FOR AFRICA tournament took place in August 2018 at the Holzäusern Golf Club in the stunning Swiss region of Zug. The event that brought together more than 80 participants, was held on behalf of the Roger Federer Foundation that strives to provide educational opportunities for children in Southern Africa and Switzerland.
“I admire Roger Federer both for his sporting and human qualities. It is therefore a great honour to be able to support this charitable event and to raise money for his foundation," concluded Anna Chappuis, Cellcosmet & Cellmen owner and tournament participant.
Governing board members and parents of Roger Federer, Lynette and Robert Federer, also attended the event. The atmosphere was sporty but serious in its intent. There was a fun, laid-back feel to the African-themed evening thanks to, amongst others, Bianca Sissing and Pit Kälin who hosted the event with such brio. In her very moving speech, Lynette Federer reminded us that “We must do everything we can so that children affected by poverty can take control of their future and have access to education”.
The event ended with an auction sale and the presentation of a cheque to Lynette Federer on behalf of the Roger Federer Foundation. The cheque of 72,685 Swiss Francs came as a wonderful surprise to all those present.
At the end of the event, all the participants received a Cellcosmet & Cellmen gift-bag. A Cellcosmet prize was also awarded to the tournament’s best female partnership.
