Char­ity golf day a big hit

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

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.
