Issued by: AccTech Systems

[Johannesburg, 10 November 2006] – AccTech Systems, Softline Accpac’s number one Accpac business partner, has announced it will facilitate this year’s Beeld Children’s Fund Golf Day along the coastline of KwaZulu-Natal.

The golf day will take place on 18 December at the Durban Country Club’s Beachwood course.

“The Beeld Children’s Fund is an institution focused entirely on the fate of underprivileged children,” says Adrie van Staden, Public Relations Officer for the Beeld Children’s Fund.

“It has been in existence for 29 years and approximately 10 000 children in need of care are annually being helped and supported by the Beeld Children’s Fund through the following:

  • Taking care of physical and emotional needs of children in children’s homes
  • Feeding projects
  • School awareness programmes for disabled pre-school children
  • Outings and camps for children who have never had a vacation
  • Entrepreneurial training for the less privileged high school children
  • Study bursaries for promising students
  • Taking care of children in places of safety
  • Psychological and welfare services for traumatised children

1995 Springbok Rugby hero, Kobus Wiese, who acts as trustee for the Children’s Fund, will be the master of ceremonies during the prize-giving function.

“AccTech Systems is already in its 11th year of existence and our exponential growth during the past five years has led AccTech to expand to six South African and seven African branches,” says Tertius Zitzke, Managing Director of AccTech Systems. “Since the fate of underprivileged children is a cause that lies close to our hearts, we would like to invite all companies in the IT industry to participate in this day. We are excited to make this day a huge success and therefore invite everyone to join hands together with our main sponsor Absa, to enable us to raise funds for the benefit of the Beeld Children’s Fund,” says Zitzke.

Companies can participate in any of the following ways:

Playing golf: The format will be a four-ball alliance and a donation of R2 500 per four-ball will include a quality golf shirt, a broad-brim golf hat, refreshments at the halfway house, supper and attendance of the prize-giving function.

Sponsoring the first, fourth, 11th or 15th tee: This donation of R4 000 will include the playing fees of a four-ball as described above, as well as the opportunity to display your marketing material around these prominent tees, therefore introducing your enterprise to the players and guests.

Sponsoring refreshments at the halfway house: Your sponsorship of R5 000 will provide the opportunity to place your marketing material at the halfway house and on the meal vouchers, handing out of marketing material to players and guests, thereby introducing your enterprise to all the players.

Sponsoring the practice green (two available): A sponsorship of R5 000 will include the playing fees of a four-ball as described above and will provide you with the opportunity to display your marketing material on the practice green in front of the Club House as an opportunity to introduce your enterprise to all the players.

Ex gratia donation: We would appreciate it if you could consider making an ex gratia donation in addition to your donation or in the event that you cannot participate in this year’s day.

Zitzke says that except for the fact that participating companies will be showing their involvement in the community and contributing to the joy and happiness of a lesser privileged child, sponsoring companies will enjoy specific mentioning in Beeld, which will handle the media coverage of this event.
