Events firm plans charity golf tourney

RPM-TV and its president, Manrique Mata, are sponsoring a tournament at the  Costa Rica Country Club to raise funds to fight child abuse.

The firm said that the event will be Aug. 10. The beneficiary will be the Fundación Centro de Estudios para la Paz.

RPM-TV is known in Costa Rica and many other countries for its production of family entertainment events, such as concerts, rodeos, and soccer games. 

Golfers from around the country will pay to play in the tournament, which is expected to have a large participation, the firm said.

The company has organized charitable events in the past but this is the first time that the money collected will go to a single recipient, the company said.

The foundation says that its goal is to eliminate direct violence and structural violence, which includes racism, sexism and xenophobia.
