Golf­ing fundraiser helps breast can­cer re­search

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The Fin­ley Ladies Golf breast can­cer fundraiser raised $1350 for breast can­cer re­search and sup­port, thanks to lo­cals and spon­sors who sup­ported its char­ity event.

For the past 10 years Fin­ley lo­cal Joanne Dean has or­gan­ised the lo­cal golf day, which was held in Au­gust. The raf­fle was drawn a few weeks later.

‘‘We live in an age­ing town and we need to con­tinue to sup­port breast can­cer re­search,’’ Mrs Dean said.

‘‘The lo­cal busi­nesses have been re­ally help­ful and sup­port­ive ev­ery year since we started.

‘‘Breast can­cer has a huge im­pact on so many lives and it’s good to know the money is go­ing back into a very wor­thy cause.

‘‘I want to thank Fin­ley Qual­ity Meats for their sup­port and al­low­ing us to draw the raf­fle in store.’’

At the golf day Ker­rie Car­lon won the stroke event, and run­ner-up was Mary Polk­inghorne.
