The Talamak Golfers Association (TGA) is a Filipino-Canadian golf & sports club in the Greater Toronto Area that has partnered with LBC Express Inc. (Canada), the Philippines premiere cargo-forwarding company, in promoting sports and community-development initiatives during almost two decades of its existence.
This year, LBC and Talamak have once again joined hands in pursuing their common goals of supporting various charitable and sports-development causes in the GTA. For example, in early spring, the two organizations successfully held the 4th LBC Badminton Funfest which attracted the participation of more than a hundred racquet-enthusiasts from Toronto and nearby cities. LBC also provided sponsorship in the 10th GTA Interleague Golf tournament in June. As well, in August, the staff and members of LBC and Talamak Golf took part and supported the charity walk hosted by ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor), a leading Philippine charity organization that provides housing and educational assistance to indigent families back home.
In a statement provided by Raffy Policarpio, LBC Country Head, he reiterated his company’s advocacy towards meaningful and responsible corporate governance, particularly within the community, through financial sponsorship of charitable and sports-development activities. Similarly, the officers and members of Talamak Golf, represented by Chito Yorro (TGA Chair) and Renato Bautista (TGA President), have pledged their commitment to support LBC in terms of product patronage, brand awareness and cooperation and assistance in the company’s ongoing cause-oriented projects.
At the recent Annual Awards & Appreciation dinner of Talamak Golf at the Remington-Parkview banquet hall, LBC was honoured with a crystal plaque of appreciation in recognition of the many contributions the company had provided the club in furthering its goals.
Likewise, Mr. Policarpio also awarded the key movers of Talamak Golf framed certificates of appreciation for their continued assistance in planning, organizing and executing LBC’s badminton tournaments and charity-walk events during the year.
Other highlights of the gala dinner included the awarding of the giant LBC Cup golf championship trophy to this year’s winner, Herbert Respall. The huge LBC Cup trophy symbolizes the company’s far-reaching promise of excellence in various fields – business, sports, community involvement and customer relations.
Some other notable club winners of the season-long LBC-sponsored golf tournaments are Jowie Jucal (TGA Points), Ed Luistro (TGA Masters) and Korean-Canadian golfer Hyun Woong-Lee (TGA MatchPlay).
After a fun night of lively dancing, sing-alongs and entertainment numbers, Talamak’s gala event concluded with raffling of door prizes, gift certificates and cash prizes.
