Road to Canada Womens Open

Dear Friends/ family

Thanks so much for your support over the years and to see your daughter/ mentee blossom over the years.
She is now set to play her second LPGA qualifier in Canada at the Camelot Golf and Country Club on the 20th August 2017.

Once again we need your help to actualise this dream that she has had for the past 3 years.

She would need funding to attend the tournament to cover for flight tickets, practice rounds, accomodation, upkeep ,caddy fees and  local transportation.

Georgia began her career at the tender age of 61/2 and has never looked back which has inspired her team to go all out for her.

Below is a list of achivements so far in relation to her game and the community in general.

JOURNEY FROM THE START

Georgia is passionate about sharing her talent and knowledge by spending time with other juniors like herself in allowing them to learn from her own experiences and is currently an ambassador for Kids Golf International which is set up to increase participation in a currently disadvantaged African Continent. She has visited schools and golf foundations in Nigeria as part of this process.

APPRECIATION AND GIVING BACK

In appreciation for all the help she received, Georgia now gives back to the juniors as much as she can through being an ambassador for the Kids Golf International project.

On January 5th 2017, she received an invite to play alongside the Ladies Professionals in the qualifying event for the LPGA Pure Silk Bahamas classics in Paradise Island, Bahamas. It was a fantastic experience and she learnt a lot from playing with LPGA professionals.

Georgia's comments

"I am confident that I have the ability to compete at the highest level of competition but I am lacking the financial ability to reach all of my goals. That is why I need your help. Each dollar you contribute goes directly to my tournament expenses. My supporters are my partners and it takes a team for me to succeed.

Most importantly, this will empower me with the tools I need to pursue my bigger dream of inspiring and giving back to a younger generation of girls and boys who like me have challenges in their lives but are not going to be denied their dreams".

KIDS FOUNDATION IKOYI CLUB LAGOS

Helping out kids at her local club in Ikoyi, Lagos gives her a lot of satisfaction and she has fun with other kids too!!!

She is now set to play her second LPGA qualifier in Canada at the Camelot Golf and Country Club on the 20th August 2017.

She has always worked really hard on her game, competed regularly worldwide and practices between 6-8 hours per day and has even taken her exams early just so she can play more golf and achieve her dreams.







Most of you have followed keenly with us and shared our ups and downs and now her dream is becoming real so fast but...........we need urgent and immediate FUNDING to achieve it.

Thanks for your support and encouragement over the years, however we need to appeal desperately for this event as it's the biggest achievement of her career so far.

The funds will be used to attend the tournament for flight tickets, practice rounds, accomodation, upkeep, caddy fees, local transportation.

IMPORTANCE OF THIS TOURNAMENT

Georgia would be the youngest and first black African Lady to play on the LPGA should she achieve this goal and also she is currently a role model for a lot of younger girls and boys coming through and living their dreams
Thank you for helping her achieve her dream and God bless you.
