KNOX CLUB CHARITY GOLF DAY ~ SUNDAY 24th MARCH 2019
Our Annual Charity Golf Day was held on Sunday 24th March at Dorset Golf Course, Croydon. The golfers were up at first light to tee off but they were greeted with a delicious warm breakfast and a beautiful day to come. As the course filled with players in black and white polos, nerves filled our golfers on the 9th tee as they were driving to win a brand Suzuki Swift! All they had to do was sink a hole-in-one, easy right? Unfortunately no one managed to drive away with the car, but there’s always next year.
Congratulations to our winning team, “The Baldies”, they comfortably took out the competition and celebrated their victory with some karaoke (“We are the champions, my friend”).
An honourable mention to “Legends of the Hawka” and “The Shiftys” who were runners up and the team with best gross score respectively.
After the game it was back to the Knox Club for the presentations, fundraising, food and karaoke fun.
The Charity Golf Committee would like to give a huge thank you to all our sponsors and wonderful helpers who helped us raise funds on the day. This allowed us to donate $20,000 to the Eastern Health Foundation which will go towards providing extra staff at Maroondah Hospital’s Breast and Cancer Centre. Additional staff means better care and support for cancer patients and their families.
Over the past eighteen years, including this year’s contribution, our total amount donated to cancer research has reached $475,000.
A special mention to Arthur Corrin whom we lost last year; his hard work and contribution to this annual event has been quite significant. Arthur you will be truly missed.
