LOM raises $2000 at the RE/MAX Chamber Golf Classic

LOM, one of the major sponsors of the annual RE/MAX Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic, went above and beyond in showing their support. In keeping with the annual traditions of the golf tournament, sponsors are encouraged to have additional activities or challenges at their hole or tee. LOM’s strategy proved to be the “most fun hole” at the tournament this year, winning them the award and bragging rights.

LOM sold branded golf balls for charity and encouraged players to hit their LOM ball onto the green for a prize. The associates at the tee also persuaded participants to donate monies for local charities, and their tactics proved successful as they raised over $750. LOM and some of their associates agreed to match each donation and have graciously given the Chamber of Commerce CI$2000 to disperse to local not-for-profit causes. Mr. David McNay, LOM’s General Manager and Director of LOM Securities (Cayman) Ltd enjoyed a day of golfing and told the Chamber, “It’s a great way to have a day of fun, and raise money for much needed causes on the island”.

The RE/MAX Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic celebrated its ninth year and raised over CI$7000 for charity. Benefiting from the event were the David Wade Foster Foundation, NCVO – the Pines Retirement Home and Cayman Hospice Care.

Wil Pineau, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, explained, “The sponsors and participants are the heart of this Annual event. We like to bill it as the “most fun” golf tournament on the island – and each year, we are including more and more fun activities. It is definitely not your average tournament...just about each hole has a new challenge waiting for the participants – all in good fun for a great cause!”

LOM Securities (Cayman) Limited opened in 1995 and is conveniently located on Seven Mile Beach.
