The long week­end saw a big turnout for the Na­vo­rina Aux­il­iary’s golf day fundraiser, held at the Deniliquin Golf Club, on Sun­day.

It was the first char­ity golf day hosted in Deniliquin since Fe­bru­ary, with var­i­ous events be­ing called off through­out the year due to the Coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

Golfers ral­lied for the oc­ca­sion with 107 play­ers on the course for the am­brose event, brav­ing the heat and strong winds.

The day also in­cluded a sausage siz­zle lunch and raf­fle, and raised more than $3500.

Aux­il­iary pres­i­dent Shirley Wil­lis said the day far ex­ceeded her ex­pec­ta­tions.

‘‘We were and still are ec­static with the day,’’ she said.

‘‘Last year I be­lieve there were only about 60 golfers, so to have this kind of sup­port is amaz­ing.

‘‘The lo­cal spon­sor­ship was also amaz­ing, par­tic­u­larly with the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion sur­round­ing Coro­n­avirus. We’d like to thank ev­ery­one that got in­volved for their sup­port.’’
