The organisers of the Swing for the Kids golf tournament continued raising funds for the Swing for Kids 2022 Scholarship Fund as well as an integrated auction, in support for talented Vietnamese students from difficult backgrounds.

With a starting price of $872, the organisers sought active support from donors to the Swing for the Kids 2022 Scholarship Fund, thus promoting the mission of cultivating underserved young talents across Vietnam.
Prior to this, the 2019 Swing for the Kids tournament organised an online auction with three special items including a Newcastle United club jersey for the 2008-2009 season autographed by the team members and coaching staff; a Heineken ball signed by player Clarence Seedorf, and another one signed by players Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.
This year's selected item was an $1830 three-day voucher for two at the luxury resort Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. Along with the on-site auction, the organisers held a virtual auction through three digital channels including baodautu.vn, vir.com.vn, and tinnhanhchungkhoan.vn.
After 15 tournaments, VIR's Swing For the Kids fund, co-organised by BRG Group and SeAbank, has facilitated the heart-warming and inspirational spirit of this sport by promoting education among disadvantaged Vietnamese high-school and college students.
It has granted 18,000 scholarships with a total value of over $807,000 to the targeted students and assisted in repairing and upgrading educational facilities in 50 cities and provinces nationwide.
