The Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/ Dioxin (VAVA) will open its first charity golf tournament to raise funds for the over three million victims of the chemical weapon in the country.

The tournament will be convened on May 6 at the Dam Vac (Heron Lake) golf course in the northern province of Vinh Phuc. The event is expected to draw the participation of over 100 golfers.

Golfers will be catergorised into four groups, competing under a System 36 point (day handicap) requirement.

Several awards will be available for players to win, including ‘Hole-in-One’, ‘Nearest to the Pin’, ‘Nearest to the Line’, and ‘Longest Driver’ prizes.

An auction will be held to raise funds for the Vietnamese Agent Orange/Dioxin Victims Fund during the event.-VNA
