FOR the third year in a row, ProSysCom will be hosting their annual Golf Day in a bid to raise funds for Thandi House.

Situated in Chase Valley, Thandi House was started 10 years ago by Rene Morcom who, 23-years-old at the time, had read about an abandoned baby in the newspaper and immediately felt a sense of conviction come over her.

“After reading that story I knew I had to do something to try and eradicate this problem in any way, so I quit my job to take it on,” said Morcom­, who added that her husband also eventually quit his job to help her.

Ten years and countless assisted children later, Morcom­ says that, truthfully, it has been a challenge, but a worthwhile one as she and her husband get to raise and nurture less privileged individuals.

“Our home is not like any normal place. Here we are a family; we operate as a unit, always eating together, helping in the house etc.,” she said.

Morcom believes that every child deserves a parent and, as such, Thandi House cares for abandoned, abused, and disabled children. They also help teen mothers, who they house and help until they find can jobs so that they can support themselves and their children.

Jannetta Hunt, from ProSysCom­, said that they are hoping that many people will join in on the Golf Day to help them raise more money than they did at last year’s event.

“We are looking for as many businesses and individuals as possible to come on board to sponsor prizes, four-ball entries, and hole sponsors.

“We will also be having a raffle with a prize of a two-night stay for two people, including board and lodging, at an exclusive holiday destination,” said Hunt.


• Option 1 — Four Ball without golf carts R2 000

• Option 2 — Four ball with golf carts R2 500

Hunt said that both options include breakfast, green fees, halfway voucher, and dinner.
