Marriott Golf day
The future looks bright for 10 new Bali Children Foundation students thanks to the Marriott Golf Day at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu.
Record proceeds raised from the recent golf event will fund 10 new college scholarships under BCF’s ‘Food For Thought’ program. Initiated by Will Meyrick, the founding chef of Sarong Group, this program involves a number of well established local restaurants and hotels including the Marriott Group. The concept arose from a recognition that, despite the tourist dollar continuing to fill Bali’s coffers, the positive impact does not reach as far as it should. Many families in remote rural communities live in poverty with little to no options for a manageable, let alone survivable income.
Food For Thought aims to build a pathway for disadvantaged young adults to access higher education and better employment opportunities through Bali’s F&B industry – something that the Marriott Golf Day contributed to in no small way. big time!
