DAP Damansara Golf Tournament 2009

This will be the second year which we are running our golf tournament, for the purpose of raising funds to help run my Petaling Jaya Utara constituency's service centre.

I have 4 staff in the office at the moment to help with constituency, research and parliamentary work, plus operational expenses - rental, utilities etc., it costs our office approximately RM12,000 per month to maintain. The Selangor state government starting this year, subsidises RM50,000 per annum of an MP's office expenses, but that'll still leave us with about RM100,000 short, which are funded by public donations, as well as from my own allowance.

We hope to raise approximately RM25,000 from this event, and we look forward to your generous support!

The details are as follows:
Date: 19 Aug 2009 (Wed)
Time: 7.30 am (shot gun)
Venue: Tropicana Golf & Country Club
Entry fee: RM350 per pax.
Closing date: 15th Aug or up to 120 participants (1st come 1st served).
There will be plenty of prizes for golfing and lucky draw winners, as well as items for auction. While the list of prizes have not been finalised, the top prizes will include air tickets to destinations overseas ;-)

Plus, if you are lucky (or unlucky) enough, we could be on the same flight ;-)

Please contact Carmen Leong or Billy Wong at our service centre hotline: 016-2208867 if you are interested to play or to sponsor the event. Or you can email leongooikuan(at)gmail(dot)com.

"RM100,000 short"? Or should it be "RM10,000 short"?

Unknown said...

Definitely ~RM100k short.

Monthly expenses ~ RM12k
Yearly expenses ~ RM144k
Less subsidy from state govt -RM50k

That'll leave ~RM94k short.

Wow, that's expensive. What is the biggest cost? Wages?

Definitely wages (and I'm already paying 'below' market rates). Wages, EPF, and related expenses tops RM10k already for 4 persons.
