Suc­cess­ful char­ity golf day

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Sixty-four golfers joined the quest to ‘Kiss Good­bye to MS’ on Sun­day by tak­ing to the De­niliquin golf course.

The lo­cal ini­tia­tive — which aims to help find a cure for mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis — raised more than $1,900 for MS re­search.

It is on top of the more than $1700 raised through the ‘Deni Walk for MS’ fundraiser held ear­lier this year.

Event co­or­di­na­tor Rob­bie Lan­dale said she was very pleased with the re­sponse they re­ceived.

‘‘A big thank you to the De­niliquin Golf Club, golfers and ev­ery­one who was kind enough to sup­port us on the day,’’ she said.

‘‘Through­out the day golfers served plenty of food in­clud­ing hold­ing a sausage siz­zle bar­be­cue and hand­ing out sand­wiches. We’d also like to thank Bak­ers De­light and Mokanger Pas­toral Co Butch­ery for their do­na­tions.’’

To add to the fundrais­ing this year, Mrs Lan­dale also hosted a char­ity mar­quee at the De­niliquin Caulfield Cup Race Day on Satur­day.

‘‘It was a bit wet on Satur­day but I don’t think it both­ered any­one too much be­cause ev­ery­one seemed to have a great time,’’ she said.

‘‘But on Sun­day we had ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful weather on the day and we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­one’s ef­forts to help raise money to help ‘Kiss Good­bye to MS’.’’
