Golf Tournament - 10 & 11 Nov

The XCM Twitface open is a charity golf tournament for amateurs which took place at Finca Cortesin in Casares over two days: November 10th and 11th 2014.

Finca Cortesin is a fantastic venue. It has staged 3 World Matchplay Championships and offers the highest level of service. With all that Finca Cortesin and the Twitface Open gives you, including a guaranteed prize fund currently of €3,500, you really should not miss out.

There were collections and an auction at the 2014 Twitface Open for two charities of which ADANA was one.

UPDATE: 31-July-2015
ADANA has received a donation of €237.40 from the organiser of the above event which was held in November of last year at Finca Cortesin.

World Animal Day - 4 Oct 2014

World Animal Day World Animal Day is an international day of action for animal rights and welfare celebrated annually on October 4, the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. It started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence, Italy who wished to highlight the plight of endangered species.

ADANA traditionally makes collections outside of Carrefour Estepona and Supersol Bel Air over a four day period covering the 4th October. We obtain a license from the Ayuntamiento and then call upon a pool of volunteers, so that we can draw up a rota covering three days from 10am until 10pm. We give one day over to Michele from Gatos y Amigos for them to collect and raise funds for their organisation.
