Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship sponsors Emirates Global Aluminum (EGA) and Abu Dhabi Sports Council (ADSC), EMC have pledged to donate AED75 ($20) for every birdie scored by players in the tournament.

The three organisations will donated the money to SEDRA Foundation for the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities as part of its Drive for Charity campaign.

Last year’s tournament saw approximately 1,500 birdies scored which, if repeated, would see the three bodies donate AED110,000 ($30,000) to SEDRA.

The contribution will jumpstart an initiative to support sports and healthy active life styles for young adults.

EMC, the authorised Mercedes-Benz distributor in Abu Dhabi and the flagship company of ALFAHIM, is also giving away a Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 to one lucky spectator who visits the EMC mobile showroom

Visitors to EMC’s mobile showroom in the Championship Village will be asked to guess the number of birdies scored by the players throughout the tournament for the chance to win a weekend test drive in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz.
