White balls at the ROYAL MOUGINS GOLF CLUB

A few days ago, on the course of the ROYAL MOUGINS golf CLUB, found themselves on the Greens, stars of the world of sport. The objective of the operation is to raise funds for the sick children of the hospital Lenval (Nice).

It all began many years ago: Jerome ALONZO (a former French professional footballer, who played the role of goalkeeper in the teams of OGC Nice, Olympique de Marseille, Ace Saint-Étienne, Paris Saint Germain and FC Nantes) was Invited to a charity competition as a sportsman. He met Eric DUQUESNE, the founder of the Association "LES bales blanches" in Paris. An unwavering friendship is born, as well as with Nathalie Innocenti (Vice-President of the Association).
From then on, the "Royal" White Balls project at the Royal Mougins Golf Club was born in addition to the "White balls Paris". The project has been hosting a hundred people for four years now and has helped to raise 25,000 euros last year. This sum allowed the construction of new safe playgrounds for the awakening of the children of the nursery ' the Patio ' of the hospital Lenval. The sums collected are all intended to improve the daily lives of children in hospital (the nursery now hosts 36 children up to 3 years old).

This year the challenge was even greater. The goal: to exceed the previous record of €25,000 donations established in 2016 to arrive at least to €30,000.

To succeed, Jérôme Alonzo was surrounded by 6 people. With them, he builds the project.
"Bring in stars," he says: "It's easy, it's buddies…" But they have to be free. " It is true that the organisation-transport, hotel, raffle, competition, endowment…-Requires a lot of time. "People come to spend their money for the children, in return," he says: "We must offer them a service worthy of the name".

It is therefore with pleasure that the Royal Mougins golf Club, welcomes every year and makes available its golf course 18 holes upscale, its 4 star hotel, as well as its Restaurant (the terrace of 18), where the festivities took place (lunch , Cocktail, dinner, prize-giving, raffle and auction).

During the day, 96 players sprained the fairways of the Royal Mougins Golf Club. Almost like a Pro-Am, the 24 teams were all made up of a sports personality (see below) and three amateur players.

Tuesday evening, after the golf competition and the goal shots against Jérôme ALONZO and Stéphane PORATO, the players found themselves around a dinner to evoke their day but especially to participate in the raffle and the auction.

This year were put to the auction: The racket of Rafael Nadal, the jersey of Lionel Messi signed, the jersey of Raphael Varan signed, a painting of the artist-painter Stern, as well as the flags of the American Master of Golf signed by the current N ° 1 world , Dustin Johnson. All bids were paid to the Lenval Foundation, which is present for the occasion.
