Golf tournament raises money towards Cardinal Otunga’s beatification process

Over 250 golfers on 19th August 2011 converged at the Muthaiga Golf Club for the beatification of the Servant of God Maurice Cardinal Otunga Golf Tournament.

The guest of honour at the event was His Eminence John Cardinal Njue. “We are here to celebrate the Servant of God’s heroic action as a Christian,” said Cardinal Njue.

The Nairobi Archbishop expressed his appreciation for the overwhelming turnout. “Our gathering here is a sure commitment to the fulfillment of this noble process.”

In her address, Mrs. Margaret Njuguna, the tournament Organizing Committee Secretary said they were pleasantly surprised at the huge turnout which was a record in the history of the Club. “Today has been an overwhelming day for us as a committee and for the Golf Club for it has never received such a great number of golfers in one day,” she said.

The winners of the tournament were presented with gifts at a ceremony held at the club’s conference hall. Later the golfers and invited guests shared a sumptuous dinner prepared in their honour.

The main sponsor of the Golf Event was Bonafide CSF Company which donated Kshs 500,000. Others who gave their donations included individuals and the corporate sector.

The organizing committee aimed at raising Kshs. 3 million to facilitate the process of beatification which includes expenses on data collection, transportation of judges to places where the Servant of God lived and publicizing the process through the media, among other activities.
