2016 Charity Golf Day
Carers NT hosted their annual Charity golf day on the 27th of August. It was a successful day with everybody enjoying themselves and raising money for a great cause. We had a 9 hole Ambrose at the Darwin Golf club with 18 teams participating. The staff at the Darwin golf Club were exceptional in regards to their support for our event. We would like to say thank to Amy Prior and one of their Volunteers Rex who was on the course for the duration of the event keeping people hydrated and also giving out some helpful tips in regards to the course.
Our major sponsor this year was Able Finance. Thanks to Sam Crowley & his team, they played a good game on the day.
TIO were a silver sponsor and their team looked like they had an enjoyable day too.
This year we had more hole sponsors than previous year which was great. We would like to thank the following:
- Darwin RSL Club
- Darwin Port Landbridge Group
- Bendigo Bank, Nightcliff
- A.J Gallagher Insurance
The over all winner for the day was the Toyota team who took out the highest score and closet the pin. We also had a Carers team play on the day, and that team was actually sponsored by Darwin Port part of the Landbridge Group . This gave carers an opportunity to have some time out and for many of them try something new as they had never played golf before.
Carers NT Staff were on hand to film and upload photos live from the event to our Facebook page which is something we haven’t done before. You can go to Carers NT Facebook page and look for these videos from the 26th August.
The day was not just about raising money but also raising awareness of Carers, who they are and what they do and how Carers contribute to the community as a whole. The day was an overall success and we look forward to hosting this event again next year.
