On course for a cure
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.
Golfers had a blast at the charity golf day on Sunday dressing up and decorating their golf buggies.
