GPCCI's German Ambassador's Cup 2019

The German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GPCCI) in cooperation with the German Embassy Manila held the GPCCI German Ambassador’s Cup (GGAC) last October 15, 2019 at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club. This is an invitational golf tournament under the patronage of the German Ambassador.

The tournament was attended by close to 100 golfers representing German-Philippine businesses, leaders from the Philippine government and members of the diplomatic corps. Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, German Ambassador Anke Reiffenstuel, GPCCI Tournament Director Klaus Schroeder, BDO Senior Vice President Mr. Walter Wassmer and Trends and Concepts Vice President Ms. Leni Bantiling headed the Ceremonial Tee Off.

The golf round was followed by a dinner reception at the Ambassador’s residence where players and other guests had the chance to get together. Ambassador Anke Reiffenstuel and GPCCI President Mr. Tristan Arwen “Bobbit” Loveres welcomed and thanked the guests for taking part at this year’s golf tournament.

For this year, GGAC supported Plastic Tides PH, a non-profit organization tackling the issue of plastic pollution in Philippine waters. Ms. Isabel Kittel and Mr. Julian Rodriguez, representatives of Plastic Tides PH, gave a short background, shared their outreach programs and invited everyone to take part and join their advocacy.

During the reception winners of the golf tournament were awarded prizes. The awarding was led by Event Chairmen Dr. Roland Schissau and Mr. Klaus Schroeder. Exciting prizes were also raffled off to the guests.
