The members of the Filipino Golfers in the Middle East (FIGME) tee off not just for love of the game but to give back to their countrymen as well.
On February 29, 2012, FIGME, headed by chairman Ramon Navea, donated an undisclosed amount to Bantay Bata 163 through program director Tina Monzon-Palma. FIGME has donated countless times to Bantay Bata 163 since 2008; the members had donated to different causes in the past, but they always went back to Bantay Bata 163.
FIGME’s relationship with ABS-CBN is of no surprise as TFC Middle East managing director Edgardo Garcia is a member of the group. Monzon- Palma also visited Dubai for a foundation event; a golfer herself, she teed off with the FIGME players, which started the long-standing relationship between the two organizations.
ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. donors like FIGME come from four other continents—North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania—where TFC broadcasts its signal, video materials for AFI included.
