GFDD/Funglode VI Golf Classic to be Held September 21th

September 16, 2015

The Golf Tournament will be held on September 21, 2015 at Glen Head Country Club

(New York, September 16, 2015) This event helps benefit GFDD/Funglode and its programs which support social, economic and democratic development in the Dominican Republic. It also serves as a networking opportunity for high-ranking officials, industry leaders, business executives, and celebrities. Previous tournaments have hosted leading individuals from the
philanthropic field and prominent sports figures, along with others who have supported GFDD’s programs and projects. Mr. Juan Marichal, the first Dominican to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, will carry on the tradition of being the first to tee off for the tournament. Since the first one in 2010, the golf tournament has remained a popular event.

The objective of this event is to benefit the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD), its projects and programs promoting social, economic and democratic development in the Dominican Republic. GFDD is a private, 501(c)3, US registered not for profit, non-partisan organization, dedicated to promoting collaboration between international institutions and the Dominican
Republic, conducting research and analysis, providing educational and training programs and implementing development and exchange opportunities for Dominicans in the country and the diaspora, in areas critical to the advancement and modernization of the Dominican Republic. GFDD Executive Director Natasha Despotovic says that the tournament is a “GFDD tradition to share time with partners and friends and promote fundraising in order to continue implementing a variety of projects
geared toward the development of the Dominican Republic and Latin America.”

There are several sponsorship opportunities available for interested companies or individuals. Players can register online at
