The Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) celebrates the “IX GFDD Golf Tournament” on November 21st at Deering Bay Country Club in Coral Gables, Florida.

The IX Golf Tournament GFDD 2016 was created to foster social, economic, democratic and cultural advancement in the Dominican Republic. The GFDD tournament was
designed with the purpose of contributing to the more than 18 programs that the organization currently has. Every year the event is made possible through the efforts of the GFDD staff and sponsors such as LINKS WorldGroup, BVK, Reyja, NEC Investment, Cielo RD, Metro Agencia de Viajes, Movil Plus, Loteria, Pinnacle, NexTech, Barceló, UCP, Little Switzerland, El Artístico, BP Media, OROLOGI, Balcera, Alhambra, Mahou, Porto Real D’Class, Balcera and GEM.

“The GFDD golf tournaments are attended by leading figures from the philanthropic field, prominent sports figures, and others who through the years have supported GFDD’s programs. They are an opportunity to share time with partners and friends as well as to engage supporters, build community and promote fundraising
efforts,” said GFDD Executive Director, Natasha Despotovic.

“I believe in GFDD and what Leonel Fernandez, former president of Dominican Republic, has set out to accomplish. We live in a world where helping our youth achieve greatness not only impacts their financial futures and our country, but more importantly shapes the way our country is perceived in the rest of the world. Dominican Republic is an excellent opportunity for international companies looking for talent and
for foreign direct investment (FDI) in the areas of education, science and technology,” said LINKS WorldGroup Chairman Edward de Valle II.

GFDD and Funglode President, Dr. Leonel Fernandez, will commence tournament play at 11am with an inaugural shot. Cuban American actor and singer, JenCarlos Canela, will join him for the opening ceremony and lead tee off. The participating players will be split into teams of two and awards will be given to the winning teams. Following
the tournament, a banquet and award ceremony will be held for the players in which GFDD’s Tournament Director, Ricardo Jacobo, will share a few words.
