Gebr Heinemann celebrates 25th year of Cannes golf tournament with Estée Lauder

Gebr Heinemann celebrated its 25th year as host of the Cannes golf tournament on Sunday, in association with partner and co-host Estée Lauder. Although the day was threatened by rain early in the round (which also pushed back the tee-off by almost an hour), it didn’t dampen the spirits of the 100-plus golfers, for which this is one of the social highlights of the annual Cannes week.

A team including Anders Tauno, Gilles Pomereau, Sebastian Clausen and Patrick Vorstenbosch (pictured above) captured the top prize, with a stableford score of 48 points.

There was also a special surprise for Estée Lauder. Gebr Heinemann Co-Owners Gunnar and Claus Heinemann presented Lauder’s President Travel Retailing Worldwide Olivier Bottrie with a cheque for €15,000 for the beauty group’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, which runs during October each year.

Gebr Heinemann’s Harry Diehl said: “We are delighted to support Estée Lauder in this campaign, a company that supports so many good causes, including, through Olivier, the Hand in Hand for Haiti campaign to build a school in Haiti.”
