Since 2015, Wilcon Depot, the Philippines’ leading home improvement and construction supply retailer, annually gathers its valued suppliers and industry partners for its invitational golf tournament to support chosen charities.

This year, Wilcon is donating the funds to the communities hit by the Taal Volcano eruption. Wilcon successfully conducted its sixth annual golf tournament at the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club, Antipolo City on Jan. 29.

The golf tournament gave their valued suppliers and partners the chance to enjoy a fun-filled and meaningful day of sportsmanship. The majority of proceeds will directly benefit the affected areas in the provinces of Batangas, Cavite and Laguna. It will fund Wilcon’s continuous relief missions in assisting the thousands of displaced families.

Wilcon has initially distributed relief goods through the assistance of its local workforce in coordination with local government units (LGUs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Wilcon also engaged its nationwide employees in giving out relief supplies including food, water, clothes, toiletries, and other necessities as well as financial assistance. It also pledged to donate 500 units of toilet bowls to contribute to people’s long-term needs.

Each year Wilcon continues to advance its mission in providing assistance to victims of natural calamities and disasters. With the recent Taal Volcano eruption, the company commits to help improve and uplift others’ lives.

The following were 6th Wilcon Cup sponsors: Platinum sponsors — Boysen, Davies, Mariwasa, and Pozzi; Diamond sponsors — Grohe, ABC, Landlite, HCG, American Standard, Ariston, Emigres, Geberit, and Basel; Gold sponsors — Rain or Shine, Sentry, Yale, Globe Tape, Matimco, James Hardie, Jardine, Home Aid, and Filhome Builders; Silver sponsors — K-Plast, Main Hardware, Omni, Apo Floors, Justino, Electrosavers, Onix, Energie Ker, and Mulia; and also for the generous sponsorship of Franke and AudioWav.

Delta Airlines and Toby’s Sports were the event’s Hole-in-One sponsors.

The golf tournament is just one of the many initiatives of the company to give back to society. Also, part of the proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Crocodylus Porosus Philippines, Inc. (CPPI) to support its effort in helping preserve the crocodiles in the Philippines.

More than 150 golfers—Wilcon industry partners and media partners supported the event and enjoyed a fun play of various hole competitions and activities in the Forest Hills’ world-class golf and leisure facilities.

The Wilcon Cup also serves as an extension program in promoting partnership, camaraderie, and giving thanks to their valued suppliers and industry partners.

This year’s tournament was hosted by Wilcon longtime partner Johnny Litton. During the awarding ceremony, Wilcon also presented special raffle prizes and gifts to participants and sponsors.
