For more than 20 years, the Rotary Club of Boronia has conducted a Charity Golf Day to raise funds for Club projects that assist the local community.
This year our Golf Day was held at Eastwood Golf Club on 18th February and we were once again fortunate to have excellent weather. More than 70 players took part in an Ambrose Event hitting off at 8:00am and returning to the Club House for lunch around 1:00pm.
Barry Plant Real Estate of Boronia was again the principal sponsor, having taken on this role for a number of years. Additionally, twelve individual local firms ‘Sponsored a Hole’; a number of these have also supported the event for several years. A full list of our sponsors is available … [ink to “Our partners” page].
This year’s event was again a great success. Thanks to the support of players, sponsors and the Eastwood Golf Club, we were successful in raising more than $7,500. The profit has been donated to three specific charity organisations/projects:
- “Reaching Out Because We Can” – a local organisation helping out the homeless community in Melbourne. It prepares more than 150 “You Are Special” food bags each week, to be handed out on the street, along with clothing, toiletries and blankets.
- Stonehaven House – a local charity supporting the Disabled.
- Boronia Heights Primary School – towards the purchase of a Defibrillator for the school.
Our next Charity Golf Day will be held in February 2020. Please contact the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0448 743 335 if you are interested in sponsorship opportunities or participating as a player.
