Golfers Give Back For A Good Cause

The future looks bright for 12 new Bali Children’s Foundation students thanks to last month’s Marriott Golf Day at Renaissance Bali Uluwatu!

Record proceeds raised from the recent golf event will fund 10 new college scholarships under BCF’s ‘Food For Thought’ program. Initiated by Will Meyrick, the founding chef of Sarong Group, this program involves a number of well established local restaurants and hotels including the Marriott Group. The concept arose from a recognition that, despite the tourist dollar continuing to fill Bali’s coffers, the positive impact of this injection of funds does not reach as far as it should! . Many families in remote rural communities live in poverty with little to no recourse for a manageable, let alone survivable income.

Food For Thought aims to build a pathway for disadvantaged young adults to access higher education and better employment opportunities through Bali’s F&B industry – something that last month’s Marriott Golf Day contributed to in no small way!

Amid the multitudes of amazing raffle prizes, silent auctions and lucky draws, there was certainly a benevolent tone to the evening as guests regaled the events of their day during the gala dinner. Golfers and guests then paid it forward with many prize winners donating their ‘spoils’ back to BCF for future fundraising or, (as will be the case with the three TVs) to use in BCF’s education programs at the foundation’s classrooms across the island!

But an even bigger surprise was yet to come! Motel Mexicola Group got into the giving mood with a sizeable donation set to facilitate an additional two college scholarships for hospitality students who will also be taken on as interns at the group’s iconic Da Maria Restaurant in Petitenget.

The enormity of the impact such funds will have on the future of these youth is not taken lightly. These opportunities are life changing. It’s because of programs like Food For Thought, BCF, generous supporters and sponsors alike that these students get the chance to change the course of life ahead for the better!

Spa Dates for Mums and Minis

Making time for a massage might sound like a cinch when you’re in Bali but it’s surprising how many people don’t bother to book themselves in for this kind of ‘me time’! With Mother’s Day in mind, Body Temple Spa Bali has come up with a special deal that encourages everyone to take time out… including the kids!

Running from May 11 (just in time for Mother’s Day May 12!) until May 19, Body Temple Spa are offering a free mani OR pedi for one adult AND one child with every 90 minute massage booking! The only catch is that you’ll have to set aside a bit more ‘me time’ to fit it all in as the mani/pedi deal must be redeemed on the day of the massage. Book Mum in for 90 minutes of quiet relaxation and then book in for two times the sparkle on your tips and toes!

Of course, if massages aren’t Mum’s thing, Body Temple Spa also has a heap of gift packs featuring their signature face and body products and the staff can customise the perfect gift to suit her needs.

Body Temple also offer gift vouchers so that Mum can choose a combo of spa services that she’d like most! Remember, Finns members are entitled to their usual discounts off all spa services, except for the May Mani/Pedi deal – already heavily reduced!

Make it a spa date with Mum in May and book today.
