GOLF DAY NRL GREATS SWING BY FOR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS - CHRIS HONNERY

THESE Queens­land cham­pi­ons are gear­ing up for Sun­corp Sta­dium’s Char­ity Golf Day this month to raise money for the Hear and Say Foun­da­tion.

The ninth an­nual event is be­ing held at Sanc­tu­ary Cove and this year a sep­a­rate auc­tion prize – two nights at the Pull­man Ho­tel with he­li­copter trans­fers to Sir­romet Win­ery for lunch – has also been added to raise funds for the Queens­land Drought Ap­peal.

NRL leg­ends Wally Lewis and Gene Miles, along with cur­rent Bris­bane Bron­cos Matt Gil­lett and Corey Oates, will be swap­ping the footy for the 9 iron, in sup­port of the event on Oc­to­ber 26.

Sun­corp Sta­dium gen­eral man­ager Alan Gra­ham said his pas­sion for golf was slightly bet­ter than his abil­ity, but he’ll be head­ing along to sup­port the great cause.

“I’ll be out there hav­ing a swing,” he said. “And it’s sen­sa­tional to have the sup­port of Wally and Gene each and ev­ery year.”

Since its in­cep­tion, the Golf Day has raised $326,000, with an­other $50,000 ex­pected this year. To put in a bid for the auc­tion prizes, visit ss­golf­day.com.
