Charity retro fun a big hit
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.
