The second edition of the golf tournament “For a Smile”, held in La Romana Country Club, here in Casa de Campo last Saturday, April 25th, to raise funds for their medical mission was a total success!
David Potter and Wilson Santana came out as winners with a net overall score of 62.
The tournament, which was attended by 120 participants and had a waiting list of more than 40 players, aimed to raise funds for the foundation’s programs of pre- and post-surgeries for children from low income families with cleft lip and palate.
