STTA raises record amount in golf fund-raiser
The Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA) raised a record $588,000 in its biennial fund-raising golf tournament on Friday (Sep 22) at the Sentosa Golf Club's Serapong Course.
The money raised will go towards the national sports association's youth development programmes, sports excellence plans and its operational costs.
STTA president Ellen Lee said: "All the donations from the STTA Fund Raising Golf Tournament 2017 will provide invaluable resources for STTA to nurture our professional athletes, grow the youth development programmes and encourage more Singaporeans to take up table tennis.
"However, the STTA still needs a lot more if we are to continue growing the sport of table tennis in Singapore, and the STTA will continue to seek meaningful partnerships with other companies in various industries to develop our sport.”
