Port Stephens Women’s Cancer Support Group held their first Golf Charity Day on Tuesday 29 November at Nelson Bay Golf Club.
148 ladies donned themselves and their golf carts in shades of purple with teams of four taking part in the day to raise funds for the support of women in Port Stephens who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
Tracy Smith-Transton from Curves at Salamander was the major sponsor with many other local businesses very generously donating prizes for the Giant Charity Raffle and the live auction.
More fundraising options on the day were a guessing competition, 100 Club, Mulligan’s booklets full of free hits/kicks along with several novelty holes including substituting a golf club and ball for a hockey stick and ball.
Surprisingly enough, there was a hole in one on this hole.
Volunteers were out in force collecting donations from the golfers with a total of just over $6000 raised on the day.
“It was an amazing response from the local community to support this most worthwhile charity and we are most grateful for their generosity,” Rhondda Shaw, PSWCSG Secretary and Publicity Officer, told Bay News Of The Area.
Next year’s Charity Golf Day has been planned for Tuesday 14 November.
If you are a woman living in Port Stephens who is battling cancer, the Women’s Cancer Support Group can assist.
“These ladies rely on family and friends to provide much-needed assistance, but we are here to help and to give the everyday carers a break,” Ms Shaw said.
