Charity golf day a big hit
TWENTY teams supported the Monto Hospital Auxiliary annual golf day recently.
The Monto Golf Club held the day to raise funds for the auxiliary and to support awareness of Beyond Blue on October 20.
Funds raised will also go to the deck fund.
Plans and council approval have been completed for the deck and the auxiliary is in the process of applying for a grant for the remainder of the funds.
Mayor Don Waugh and his wife attended the day and presented the prizes on the night.
Cr Waugh said he was excited about winning the plum pudding raffle, donated by Valerie Radel.
The winning team for the day was Tony Dillon and Craig and Trudy Hampson.
This team won a family pass to Aussie World, two nights’ accommodation at Cania Gorge Caravan Tourist Park and a hair straightener donated by Stacey’s Salon.
The best dressed team of the day was won by the Smurf Boys who covered their bodies in blue food dye to support the Beyond Blue initiative.
The team consisted of Michael Tye, Scott Blythe and Judd Parfitt. They won three breakfast trays donated by Monto Meats.
Queensland Cricket donated to the auxiliary a signed cricket bat by Ryan Harris (only one of 12 to be made). This was won by Carl Watt who we believe is an avid cricket supporter. Funds raised from this raffle was $944. Thankyou to all those who sold tickets in this over the last few months.
A live lamb was donated by Matthew and Tracey Pattie to be auctioned on the night.
This was won by Peter and Kristine Dingle for $215.
Special thank-you must go to all the people and sponsors whose hard work and dedication made the event such a success.
Profits raised from the day were $2594.94.
