In January, ELYSIAN joined legendary golfers on the links at Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida as the official media sponsor for the Golf Fore Africa Pro Am and Golf Clinic. Founded in 2007 by Golf Hall of Fame member, Betsy King, Golf Fore Africa empowers the golf community to support transformational programs in Africa that benefit children and families. The two-day event raised $150,000 for the nonprofit’s clean water initiative in rural villages in Zambia. One well takes $15,000 to fund provides clean water to an entire community for life.
ELYSIAN hosted an elegant kickoff party for the Golf Fore Africa clinic at the Palm Beach home of ELYSIAN Executive Editor of Graceful Living, Rhonda Wilkins. The event brought together leading female golfers with the ELYSIAN Circle of Inspiring Women, prompting dialogue about philanthropic giving and celebrating women in golf.
Guests learned about GFA’s commitment to ending the global water crisis. GFA has installed more than 160 wells and funded 12 mechanized water systems, providing clean water to more than 750,000 people.
VR headsets gave guests a side-by-side view of 8-year-old Beatrice hauling water back to her rural Zambian village and the transformative effect a well brings.
