Even the scorching sun did not deter the 51 Lexus owners from thoroughly enjoying the game of golf they had each donated $1,200 for.

Together, they raised $68,000 for the Singapore Children's Society (SCS) at the very first Lexus Love for children Golf Challenge 2010 with one participant donating $10,000.

Familiar faces from Lexus Charity Golf Days of previous years were thrilled to be back for more, and the reason was no mystery. From the moment participants arrived at the Sime Course at Singapore Island Country Club, they were showered with true Lexus hospitality, with warm smiles from staff volunteers from various departments.

Every golfer was treated to a goody bag worth over $500, not to mention the attractive Hole-in-One prizes which included a Lexus GS Hybrid, luxury holidays to Paris and Bora Bora at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts worth $50,000 each, as well as a case each of Chateau Ausone 2006 and Chateau Latour 2005 valued over $52,000. Many gifts and prizes were given out over the 18 holes of golf, with a Mystery Prize hole and fun challenges like Nearest the Pin at each par 3 hole, Nearest the Line and Longest Drive to add some spice to the game.

Refreshed after a good shower, the sporting Lexus owners dressed up for Lexus' very own sarong dinner party. Those who were early had the opportunity to enjoy pre-dinner cocktail games like the putting challenge, as well as a lucky dip. Mr Koh Ching Hong, Managing Director of Borneo Motors (Singapore) Pte Ltd, commenced the night with an opening address before everyone tucked into the decadent eight course meal.

Soon, hearty guffaws, singing and cheers filled the room as our party guests joined Doreen, the emcee, in crooning golden oldies backed by a live band. Two big-hearted souls promised and delivered $1,000
each for the songs Doreen belted out upon their request, raising the total amount donated to $70,000.

The cheque, which was received by Mr Chia Boon Khiang, Director for Fundraising, SCS, and the additional donations, will certainly go a long way in furthering the SCS's cause. The 58 year old charity
cares for children and youth of all races and religions, especially those who are abused, neglected and come from dysfunctional families.

The day's events were captured on screen to the delight of many, and the top golfers were awarded with the tournament prizes. Categories like 'Most Kan ChiongGolfer' and 'Best Dressed in Sarong' followed,
to enthusiastic pumping of fists into the air and clapping of backs.

Then everyone waited with bated breath as the last two lucky draw names were picked for the top prizes -the latest Apple iPads.
Thus it was a blissful end to the Lexus family gathering as members left, each bringing back fond memories encapsulated in personalised photo frames and looking forward to next year's golf challenge.
