Golf pays off for girls
GOLF: The Mundubbera State School girls volleyball team hosted a three-ball ambrose event at the weekend with Skye Ward, Evelyn Kimber and Rebecca Kimber combining to claim victory with 35 points.
The competition raised money for the volleyball team which will head to Melbourne later this year to compete.
Mundubbera Golf Club president Graham Carlyon said the ambrose had been well received.
“The participation and
support is just a sign of how we support the kids at school,” he said.
The ambrose is the second fundraising event staged at the club after the Imperial Challenge was played earlier this month.
“It was a great effort from everyone and we’ve raised about a $1000 for the girls volleyball team,” Carlyon said.
Carlyon said the course was in great condition following recent rain.
“The course went from dead to green in a week,” he said.
“It’s a lot easier to play and the green makes people feel better. It may sound silly but it’s a fact.”
Volleyball coach Adrian Brady said it the event had been a success and it had been great to see the two organisations working together.
“The golf club did a great job running the day,” Brady said. “On behalf of the volleyball team, I would like to thank all of our generous sponsors, the parents that have gone above and beyond with the organisation of the event and the golf club who did an amazing job.”
The team’s final fundraiser will be held on Saturday, November 4.
