Representatives of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) and the liquefied petroleum gas importing company E1 visited a facility for the disabled in Nowon District, northeastern Seoul, yesterday and delivered sneakers raised by the E1 Charity Open.

The KLPGA and E1, the sponsor of the E1 Charity Open, raised 60 million won ($56,700) of donations from professional golf players and 60 million won of donations from E1 for social responsibility activities.

Using 50 million won, they will provide Prospecs’ sneakers and socks to 21 facilities for the disabled.

The sneakers will be given to 986 people in 21 facilities.

A ceremony held at the disabled facility in Nowon District yesterday was attended by Kang Chun-ja, vice chairwoman of KLPGA, Kang Jeong-seok, executive director of E1, Heo Gon, vice chairman of the Korea Association Welfare Institution of the Disabled and Kim Bo-kyung, a 27-year-old golfer who won this year’s E1 Charity Open.

The KLPGA plans to use the remaining 70 million won to support several domestic welfare facilities for the disabled, where volunteers can help any who wish to become golf players.
