Ron Drew golf day to raise funds for nurses

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE an­nual Ron Drew Char­ity Golf Day is fast ap­proach­ing.

Over the past eight years, the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil has held a char­ity day in hon­our of for­mer build­ing cer­ti­fier Ron Drew, who passed away in 2007 fol­low­ing a bat­tle with can­cer.

Dur­ing this time, Mr Drew was cared for by the Proser­pine Blue Nurses, who are the ben­e­fi­ciary of this char­ity drive.

The ini­tia­tive hopes to raise funds to al­low the Proser­pine Blue Nurses to con­tinue with the care and sup­port that so many peo­ple have and con­tinue to rely upon.

The Char­ity Golf Day, which will be held on Septem­ber 13, is seek­ing spon­sor­ship for the day, in the form of do­nated prizes or cash.

For more in­for­ma­tion in re­gards to the event, con­tact Kelvin Stephens on 0408 753 833.

GOLF­ING FOR A CAUSE: The Ron Drew Char­ity Golf Day will not only pay trib­ute to the for­mer build­ing cer­ti­fier, but also raise funds for the Proser­pine Blue Nurses.
