Mervis Diamond Importers and South African Airways have teamed up to host the 2012 Mervis Diamond Million Dollar Invitational golf tournament to benefit The Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at the Whiskey Creek Golf Club in Ijamsville, Maryland, USA.

“We are delighted to host this event which helps bind us to the community and Komen Maryland, and we hope it will become an annual event, “says Ronnie Mervis, CEO of Mervis Diamond Importers. Mervis, a native of South Africa is especially happy that the national airline of his home country has decided to participate. “It gives me great pride that the national airline of South Africa has decided to support such a worthy cause. This should just be another reason for anyone traveling to South Africa needs to fly on SAA. They offer exceptional South African hospitality, wines and cuisine and the fact that they have daily flights from Dulles makes it easier than ever for anyone to enjoy that experience of a lifetime”.
The golf tournament will be staged on South African, and recent British Open winner, Ernie Els’ course at the Whiskey Creek Golf Club and offers the chance for all players to win one million dollars.
