Tiger Woods’ caddy can be bought

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

The chance to win a round of golf for you and two friends with Tiger Woods’ caddy Steve Wil­liams is up for grabs dur­ing an auc­tion at this year’s Friends of Starship Mel­bourne Cup lun­cheon.

Per­sonal train­ing along the way from Wil­liams and a se­lec­tion of Nike golf gear is in­cluded in the once in a life­time prize.

The lun­cheon has been or­gan­ised by Friends of Starship and New­mar­ket Ro­tary who are once again join­ing to­gether at the Eller­slie Con­ven­tion Cen­tre for an af­ter­noon of fun, fash­ion and food to cel­e­brate the an­nual run­ning of the Mel­bourne Cup.

Money raised at the Novem­ber 4 event will help pur­chase head cool­ing caps for ba­bies in Starship’s neona­tal in­ten­sive care unit.

The New Zealand pi­o­neered caps cost $75,000 each and cool the heads of ba­bies who have suf­fered trauma from oxy­gen de­pri­va­tion. This has been shown to greatly re­duce the risk of per­ma­nent brain dam­age.

Held in the Great North­ern Room at the Eller­slie Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, the pro­gramme in­cludes on-course racing at Eller­slie, live and si­lent auc­tions, cal­cutta auc­tion and other prizes and raf­fles in­clud­ing best dressed, best hat and best tie.
