Char­ity retro fun a big hit

Pilbara News - - News - Peter de Krui­jff

A swing­ing 1970s Kar­ratha char­ity golf day for Telethon has raised just over $35,000.

About 85 golfers hit the Kar­ratha Coun­try Club golf course last month in the spe­cial Am­brose event.

Colleen and Greg Wolfe, aka the Elvises, looked the part with their popped col­lar and statue-stiff quiffs.

The pair were named best dressed at the event.

As the day wound down, a silent auc­tion was held and fines were doled out by fines master Harry Hip­worth.

No one was safe from the fines master’s gaze and Spirit 1220 break­fast an­nounced Pablo New­ton Far­ley copped it for start­ing one too many holes from the ladies’ tee-off.

Lo­cal band What Now? pro­vided free mu­sic into the night.

Pil­bara News branch man­ager Car­rie Gane said it was a bril­liant day and ev­ery­one had en­joyed them­selves.

“It was fan­tas­tic to see ev­ery­one dressed up and happy to do­nate money for the kids of Telethon,” she said.

Spirit 1220 sta­tion man­ager Ju­dith Chap­man said there were lots of gen­er­ous do­na­tions.

“The golf was great fun, not sure how true and ac­cu­rate some of the scor­ing was, but in an event like that it didn’t mat­ter,” she said.
