On Par for a Purpose: Wilcon’s Drive to 100th Wilcon Depot’s 7th Wilcon’s Cup success

Wilcon Depot aced another milestone with the staging of the 7th Wilcon Cup after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. The 7th Wilcon Cup was held at Wack Wack Golf and Country Club on May 7, with over a hundred roster participants, including Wilcon’s industry partners, esteemed suppliers, and media friends. 

The Wilcon Cup is an annual event of Wilcon Depot, an activity which manifests its strong sense of social responsibility. As the leading home improvement needs and construction supplies retailer’s flagship charity cup, it gathers its partners to combine recreation and giving back to the community. It was temporarily paused because of the Covid-19 health crisis.

From its first tee off in 2015, the annual golf tournament has channeled collective energy to raise substantial funds for beneficiaries which include the ABS CBN Foundation-Bantay Kalikasan, Wilcon Builders Foundation, and Crocodylus Porosus Philippines. The golf tournament is just one of the many initiatives of the company that reflect its social conscience.

More than a hundred golf enthusiasts, prominent names in the building and construction industry, including media personalities graced the event.  The day began with ceremonial tee shots from Wilcon Depot Founder & Chairman Emeritus Dr. William T. Belo, President and CEO Lorraine Belo-Cincochan, SEVP-COO Rosemarie Bosch-Ong, and Boysen Philippines Ambassador Mr. Derek Ramsey.

She particularly expressed gratitude to the Wilcon executives, and representatives of its major sponsors, such as Boysen Paints, Kohler, and Grohe, also attended the ceremony.

The 7th Wilcon Cup champions (West Course) were Jaime Alberto Melo for Division I and Arturo Alcantara for Division II. The runners-up were Edgar Allan Pasion and Arniel Caeser Idos, respectively. In the ladies’ division, Ashley Llena was hailed as the champion.

Derek Ramsay emerged as the Low Net and Longest Drive Hole #13 winner, Marvin Caparros for Low Gross, Jordan Tan for the Nearest to Pin Hole #3, and Adones Baluyut for Most Accurate Drive Hole #13 winners.
