Davao golf for a cause tees off July 8

" This is for charity. All of the money will go to the cancer victims," Singh said. The golf for a cause, which was endorsed by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, has been receiving overwhelming support from various groups and personalities here and abroad including former Governor William Booth Gardner of the State of Washington and JD Estella of Cupertino, California.

The Seattle-based Singh has tapped his friends in the states to raise funds for the tournament, which aims to put up a Wellness Center for cancer patients in Davao City.

In related development, Businessman Cho Leonor and the Rotary Club of Matina also expressed their support to the charity golf spearheaded by Singh.

Leonor joined the other backers like his father Bobby, Ed Bangayan and the Davao City Water District, Vince Espino of IHOP Restaurants Hawaii, former Fil-Am Chamber of Seattle President Bert Gola, Philippine Daily Inquirer's Alex Prieto, Ex-Representative Jose Macario Laurel IV, Speakwell Academy, Manila's Jerry Abinsay, AF Properties, Art Balmaceda and the Philippine Sports Commission.

Duterte lauded Singh on his new project in helping cancer victims. The mayor added Singh is a generous benefactor of Balay Pasilungan, a shelter for abused children in Davao City.
