Once again blue skies, creative putting skills and generous pockets came together for our 2019 Charity Golf Day event which raised a record amount to support Very Special Kids.
On the 11th of September, we hosted over 90 partners on the gorgeous greens of Spring Valley Golf Club who showed their generosity through entering teams, providing donations and outbidding each other during the live and silent auctions.
In 2018, we raised $58,000 from this great event and are very proud to say that this year we scored a hole in one with a massive total of $65,000.
These funds are vital in supporting the work that Very Special Kids do.
Very Special Kids CEO, Michael Wolsey was able to attend the day, and had the below to say, “Very Special Kids provides support to families that have a child with a life limiting condition.
We get involved through the time of diagnosis at birth, we help the family cope and we stay involved into bereavement.
Thank you, our work is very reliant on your support, and to Simply Energy, we cannot function, we cannot stretch to our families without the support of the community and Simply Energy have been a great support.”
Simply Energy CEO, Shannon Hyde spoke of the positive atmosphere on the day, “These sorts of days are great. We work with our business partners to come here and actually help out for a charity like Very Special Kids.
It’s an amazing vibe, everyone’s working for the same reason. We have some fun, we have people that maybe don’t go to the golf course too often, but they give it their best shot and later on we try to raise as much money as we can.
It’s a great day. From me to all of the participants today, thank you so much for everything you’ve done to be here, to make your time available.”
We are proud to continue supporting this worthy and special charity but we rely on the support of various companies to provide the auction items that contribute to much of the fundraising. Countless organisations dug deep to support the day, and we are tremendously thankful.
