We are extremely happy to announce that thanks to your support the 14th edition of the “Butterfly Children Golf & Ball” raised €37,012!

On Saturday 208 players displayed their golfing skills around the fabulous Aloha Golf Course in glorious sunshine. On Sunday evening nearly 200 guests wined and dined on the stunning terrace of Aloha Clubhouse enjoying live music and beautiful fireworks.

Local boy Luis Lima who has Butterfly Skin told us his story and personally thanked all the supporters. Special guest Michael Campbell presented a signed U.S Open flag for the auction and donated €1,000 on behalf of his golf school. In his speech he managed articulate the spirit of the evening through words his grand mother used to tell him as a child:  “we have one hand to take and the other to give”.

The funds raised will help the charity to continue supporting the Butterfly Children families all over Spain. For instance in 2015 we gained the commitment from the Government and Regional Authorities to supply treatments (bandaging materials) free of charge, that otherwise would cost between €200 and €2000 a month.

After 14 years of celebrating these events, we learn once again that with the generosity of others success can be achieved.
