Just one chance left to play alongside Harry Redknapp, Mike Tindall, Michael Campbell and Brian McFadden in the Swing Against Cancer Golf Series 2017

The ‘Swing Against Cancer’ Charity Golf Series will take place next week, on October 26 at Jumeirah Golf Estates, and there’s still a chance to play during the day or dine at the gala event with celebrity guests. Legendary football player and manager Harry Redknapp, England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup winner Mike Tindall, ex-New Zealand Golf pro and winner of the 2005 US Open, Michael Campbell, and now, singer-songwriter and former Westlife star Brian McFadden will all be attending. They will put their skills to the test before appearing for a fantastic evening of food, drinks and entertainment, including dinner and Q&A with the stars, a prize raffle, prize auction, live DJ, and much more!

The 16th and final spot in the amateur competition is still up for grabs until midday on October 19 at www.swingagainstcancerauction.com. You can also bid for a chance to play golf or dine with Harry Redknapp, Mike Tindall, Brian McFadden, and Michael Campbell for the day. To be in with a chance of competing with the stars, and against other qualified amateur players, or to play or dine with one of the celebrities, place your bid and get ready to tee-off!

The Swing Against Cancer Charity Golf Series 2017, launched by Sixteen10 and Worldwide Golf, follows on from the success of the Mike Clark Charity Golf Day, which over four years has raised more than US$125,000 for the Friends of Cancer Patients charity (FoCP), and over $50,000 in 2016 alone. Clark, a former UAE resident, golfing enthusiast, and Jumeirah Golf Estates employee, tragically passed away from cancer aged 30 on October 16, 2012 – hence the name Sixteen10. In commemoration of Clark’s untimely passing 5 years ago, Harry Redknapp made an appearance on Dubai Eye’s Sports Tonightshow, Monday October 16, at 7:30pm.

The celebrities will be offering further entertainment long into the evening. The drinks reception will begin shortly after play ends, followed by a sumptuous gala dinner, and a Q&A session with Harry Redknapp, Mike Tindall, Brian McFadden, and Michael Campbell, while the raffle will see some amazing prizes awarded.

The event will raise funds for the Friends of Cancer Patients charity, a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping cancer patients and their families through the ordeal of coping with the disease and helping to fund treatment. Proceeds from the Swing Against Cancer Series will go directly towards the treatments of two patients in the UAE.

Individual entry for the evening event is only AED 395, and a table of 10 just AED 3,500. Guests can reserve by calling +971 56 442 1067 or by emailing [email protected].
