On course for a cure

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

SOME bad golf didn’t de­tract from a great day of teal-coloured stream­ers and laugh­ter to help can­cer suf­ferer Char­lene Eric­son on the week­end.

The Char­ity Fun Golf Day en­cour­aged teams to go along and play nine holes to raise money and support.

Ms Eric­son is a Ma­reeba woman who is bat­tling ovar­ian can­cer and those play­ing last week­end want her to stay strong.

Teams of men and women dressed their golf bug­gies and sang last Sun­day with fun and games on dif­fer­ent sec­tions of the golf course.

Event or­gan­iser Tracey O’Shea said they raised $295 on the day and will still be host­ing a ladies night tonight as well.

“Ev­ery­one had fun and it was great to see a cou­ple of blokes come out as well,” she said. “I am look­ing for­ward to do­ing it all over again next year.”

Ms O’Shea said that tonight they would be screen­ing Bad Moms 2 with $10 of the ticket go­ing to Ms Eric­son.

The movie will start at 8pm at the Ma­reeba RSL Club ris­ing Sun Cinema.

Book­ing is es­sen­tial to watch the movie and tick­ets are $20 per per­son.
