BINTAN, Riau: A donation of S$100,000 was made during a tsunami benefit golf pro-am here on Saturday.

The amount was given by Singapore-based the Keppel Group, which organized the benefit at Ria Bintan course for 120 golfers, including businesspeople, officials and the media.

The funds will be funneled to tsunami survivors in Indonesia through the Singapore International Foundation, a non-profit, non-governmental organization whose mission is to "encourage Singaporeans everywhere to think globally, feel Singaporean, be responsible world citizens and foster friendships for Singapore".
