28 Apr IBN Charity Golf Day 2015
2nd Annual Charity Golf Day 2015
The 2nd Annual IBN Direct CHARITY GOLF DAY was held on Friday, 18th September 2015 at the Pelican Waters Golf Club, Sunshine Coast.
Despite overnight rain, the forecast was for “mostly fine” and we woke up to glorious blue skies, albeit a bit of of a breeze. With an chance to win $10,000 on three separate holes, our Players arrived bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and after a sausage sizzle, some coffee and the obligatory player briefing, they were ready to hit the greens.
Unfortunately no-one scored the elusive hole-in-one bounty on the day, though the closest was Pelican Waters Golf Club Member, Gary Tronc, landing just 0.7 metres away from the hole on the 6th.
The best part of the day came when Lanai and son Lindsay Carter were able to join us for lunch. Lanai gave us an insight into the struggle for treatment and their fight to have it made available in Australia. She had two images showing the size of Lindsay’s tumour, before and after treatment overseas, which was a remarkable result.
The day concluded with lots of lucky door prizes, the raffle and Charity Auction, all of which could not happen without the generosity of our Sponsors and Donors.
We are pleased to announce next year’s date, so lock it in your calendar: Friday, 2nd September 2016.
