(L-R) Wilcon Depot SEVP-Chief Operating Officer and Wilcon Foundation President Rosemarie B. Ong, Wilcon Depot Founder and Chairman Emeritus William T. Belo, and Wilcon Depot President and CEO Lorraine Belo-Cincochan.

Wilcon Depot, the Philippines’ leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, successfully conducted its sixth annual golf tournament at the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club, Antipolo City on January 29, 2020.

Over the past five years, the charity golf tournament has raised a generous amount of funds to assist its chosen charities. This year, Wilcon has decided to donate the raised funds to the communities affected by the Taal Volcano eruption. Majority of the proceeds from the tournament will fund Wilcon’s continuous relief missions to the provinces of Batangas, Cavite, and Laguna in assisting the thousands of displaced families.

The golf tournament is just one of the many initiatives of the company to give back to the society. The Wilcon Cup is also an extension program in promoting partnership, camaraderie, and giving thanks to their valued suppliers and industry partners.

“We are delighted to host the annual Wilcon Invitational Golf Cup as this event brings our valued suppliers and partners together for an exciting day of sportsmanship and fellowship. But aside from that, this year has been made extra meaningful as we decided to donate majority of the proceeds as a continuous effort of Wilcon to assist those communities affected by eruption of the Taal volcano. We are grateful for the generous contributions and for those who helped to make this big event a huge hit of success.” Wilcon SEVP and COO Rosemarie Ong said during her opening remarks.

Part of the proceeds from the tournament will also be donated to the Crocodylus Porosus Philippines, Inc. (CPPI) to support its effort in helping preserve the crocodiles in the Philippines.
