We had a hole-in-one competition at the 14th to win a Mazda 2, courtesy of Blue Mountains Mazda. No one even came close and our “spotter” figured out the safest place to sit was next to the pin! As usual a million stories of what could have been. There were also nearest the pin, longest drives and putting competitions.
We returned to the Clubhouse mid afternoon for some refreshments and tote up the scores. We had a raft of high quality prizes, eg, Emirates Wolgan Resort, Bonville Golf package, Fishing trip, artwork, fashion items and more. After a few raffles, silent auctions we moved to the presentations to the golfers. The overall winning team was headed up by Chris Baker, with Sam Grey, John Bromhead and Ryan Evans. All Blackheathens and a couple of them work on the greenkeepers staff at Blackheath Golf Club.
Bob and Jenny Montgomery made the presentations for the top 3 places, a Bradman for the highest score and other prizes. Pauline Keyvar representing Huntington’s NSW & ACT, spoke about the plight of those who suffer from Huntingtons. She explained how this fundraising helps, where the money goes and the importance of getting the message out into the community. A good day was had by all.
The Fundraising Result
With the revenue from the golf fees, the silent auctions, hole-in-one fees, raffles, etc the total grossed for the day was over $13,000. An outstanding result by any measure and showed the generosity of our supporters. We thank you so much. This is distributed on a 50/50 basis with Iggy Get Out (MND) and Huntingtons NSW & ACT. A great start for the next few months as Bob prepares to complete The Last Leg from Darwin to Port Douglas.
