The Tamilore Areola Foundation (TAF) will, on Saturday, mark its second anniversary with the “First TAF Golf Tournament”, at the prestigious Ikeja Club, Lagos. The tournament will feature 120 golfers from different clubs across Nigeria.
TAF was founded in memory of Tamilore Areola as an establishment to promote charity, entrepreneurship and improved healthcare, as means of touching lives.
Announcing activities lined up for the anniversary celebration, TAF co-founder, Jeffrey Adebayo, explained that the Charity Golf Tournament draws its inspiration from Tamilore’s personal connection with golf and the Ikeja Golf Club. He added that the foundation will also have its first report presentation and fundraising event on the same day.
“In her formative years, Tamilore actively participated in golf, and her father’s involvement in the Ikeja Golf Club community fostered numerous friendships. Notably, golfers played a significant role during TAF’s launch two years ago. This resonates deeply with our belief that the Charity Golf Tournament provides an ideal platform for presenting the foundation’s initiatives.
“TAF has had two years of impact hinged on our three key initiatives: charity, new path, and Isinmi Fund (healthcare), all of which were initiated by Tamilore Areola before her passing. Immediately after the tournament, there will be a fundraising event at the Upper Pavilion of the Ikeja Golf Club House, during which the foundation will present its first report to volunteers, donors and partners. The event will start at 5pm,” Adebayo said.
He also called on individuals and corporate organisations to support TAF’s mission to spread love and impact more lives.
“Individuals can volunteer their time and also make donations. Corporate organisations have a unique role to play as potential strategic partners in our programmes. We’ve been fortunate to collaborate with partners in the past, and now, we’re seeking more like-minded collaborators to amplify our positive impact. Your contribution, whether as a volunteer, donor, or strategic partner, holds immense potential to drive positive change through TAF’s initiatives,” Adebayo said.
