Successful charity golf day
Sixty-four golfers joined the quest to ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’ on Sunday by taking to the Deniliquin golf course.
The local initiative — which aims to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis — raised more than $1,900 for MS research.
It is on top of the more than $1700 raised through the ‘Deni Walk for MS’ fundraiser held earlier this year.
Event coordinator Robbie Landale said she was very pleased with the response they received.
‘‘A big thank you to the Deniliquin Golf Club, golfers and everyone who was kind enough to support us on the day,’’ she said.
‘‘Throughout the day golfers served plenty of food including holding a sausage sizzle barbecue and handing out sandwiches. We’d also like to thank Bakers Delight and Mokanger Pastoral Co Butchery for their donations.’’
To add to the fundraising this year, Mrs Landale also hosted a charity marquee at the Deniliquin Caulfield Cup Race Day on Saturday.
‘‘It was a bit wet on Saturday but I don’t think it bothered anyone too much because everyone seemed to have a great time,’’ she said.
‘‘But on Sunday we had absolutely beautiful weather on the day and we really appreciate everyone’s efforts to help raise money to help ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’.’’
