Broome Advertiser - - Advertiser | News - Jakeb Wad­dell

From keen golfers to char­i­ta­ble hack­ers, play­ers of all abil­i­ties turned out at Broome Golf Club last Fri­day for First Na­tional Real Es­tate Broome’s char­ity golf day.

The annual event raised money for the Kyle An­drews Foun­da­tion camp, which brings 18 chil­dren to the Kim­ber­ley town for a week of fun ac­tiv­i­ties.

The sold-out event saw 18 teams of four clash in a re­laxed com­pe­ti­tion with nine holes, be­fore en­joy­ing a bar­be­cue, drink, auc­tion and raf­fle in the rooms.

More than $5000 was raised by the real es­tate com­pany through do­na­tions, spon­sor­ships and en­try.

First Na­tional mar­ket­ing and events co-or­di­na­tor Rachael Aber­nethy said the day was a great suc­cess and it would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the help of donors and vol­un­teers.

“It’s wonderful to see so many com­mit­ted golf en­thu­si­asts who re­turn each year to make this event a suc­cess,” she said. “We thank you all.”

Ms Aber­nethy said First Na­tional wanted to get in­volved to help the Broome com­mu­nity, in ad­di­tion to the annual fundrais­ers the com­pany takes part in for the Cancer Coun­cil and other na­tion­wide char­i­ties.

The win­ning golf team was Boom Time, who ousted run­ner­sup Ca­ble Beach Roof­ing.

Tim Forde had the long­est drive of the day, with the short­est drive go­ing to Ben Cook.
