More sponsors, players needed

KEEN golfers will have the opportunity to tee off for a good cause and help drive support for the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation when its inaugural Charity Golf Day gets under way.

This Sunday the organisation will host a four-player ambrose event at Bargara Golf Club to raise money to fund its important patient support work.

Bundaberg Health Services Foundation manager Maria Burnet said last-minute entries were encouraged to reserve their place in the competition.

“If there’s anyone out there who wants to support a good cause and enjoy a great day out, we’d like to hear from them,” she said.

“So far there’s about 75 players confirmed and we’re hoping more will come on board.”

Danielle Thompson, an employee at Bundaberg Hospital, approached the foundation last year to volunteer to organise the event.

“And working at the hospital I know the foundation is working hard to buy extra medical equipment to help our local patients and I know the profits from this event will stay local,” she said.

The cost is $40 a person and includes 18 holes of golf, entertainment, gold coin donation barbecue lunch and the chance to win loads of great prizes.

There’s $2000 in prize money up for grabs.

The foundation is still seeking businesses to sponsor holes on the course for $100 each.

Since its establishment 12 years ago, the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation has contributed more than $300,000 towards medical equipment, patient services and training for doctors and nurses at Bundaberg Hospital.

All proceeds from the event will go towards buying new medical equipment and patient transport vehicles.

To book a team or to sponsor a hole, call the foundation office on 4150 2863.
