Four women golfers from Flagstaff Hill Golf Club represented Living Choice at the Liquor Industry Charity Golf Day played at the Grange Golf Club on Monday 5th February. The annual golf day raises significant funds for children’s charities.
Anne Graham, Wendy Butler, Rae Angel and Jane Drummond took part in the Ambrose competition on a perfect day for golf – 28 degrees and sunny – and although they did not feature amongst the winners, they all enjoyed receiving their goodie bags containing stubby holders, bags of crisps, chocolates, tees, golf balls and a golf pencil.
After an early breakfast and coffee, they teed off at 7am and continued to be plied with food at various stalls around the course. There were also plenty of raffles and even a hole in one competition with $10,000 up for grabs.
Following the golf, everyone enjoyed a fabulous lunch in the Bank of SA marquee and there was a major auction with Lindsay Warner from Brock Williams officiating.
“It was a great day and very well organised with a full field on both the east and west courses,” said Wendy. “Although we didn’t bring home any prizes we all played well and Anne did win a raffle prize of 3 bottles of whisky.”
This year, more than $170,000 was distributed to children’s charities, including $100,000 for two projects, a Variety SA Sunshine Coach for Trinity Gardens Primary School’s St Morris unit, and a Magic Carpet for Autism SA clients. The balance of $70,000 was shared amongst 10 charities including Unite for Kids/Advertiser Sunday Mail Foundation, the Leukaemia Foundation Young Bloods program and Little Heroes Foundation.
