The weather was kind and so were the corporate golfers for our 2017 Charity Golf Day on October 20.
Southern Golf Club in Keysborough provided the perfect backdrop for 97 players to enjoy 18 holes of Ambrose golf, with Reflex Technology Group taking out the 2017 Perpetual Trophy. Australian Essential Services Maintenance and Cura Health Pharmacy came second and third respectively.
The real winners will be the 200-plus children and adults with disabilities who access our Flexible Respite Service in Wantirna South.
They will directly benefit from the almost $65,000 raised to help transform their currently tired and outdated space into a fun, welcoming and interactive area. An edible garden, water play area, cubby house and accessible and open spaces for dancing and arts and crafts are just some of the exciting plans we hope to see come to fruition.
Now in its third year, the VMCH Charity Golf Day has become a popular event, attracting generous companies and corporate golfers who want to make a difference.
The donation of funds and raffle prizes, including a $1000 pre-paid VISA gift card, a weekend away in Marysville and a summer Southern Golf Club membership helped to boost the fundraising total.
We are getting close to our $120,000 target to see the transformation of our Flexible Respite Service become a reality. To help us get there, simply click here or call 1800 036 377 to make a donation.
