More than 80 competitors took to the golf course on November 19 committed to supporting Uniting AgeWell clients to achieve their dreams.
Uniting AgeWell’s sixth Annual Charity Golf Day at the spectacular Commonwealth Golf Club in Oakleigh will inject $50,000 towards the organisation’s Wishing Well program.
In the past 12 months, the Wishing Well has helped many people realise their dreams. They include Brian, who travelled on the Spirit of Tasmania; Helen, who attended the WWE Super Showdown wrestling event in Melbourne; and John, who travelled by limousine to a special anniversary dinner with his wife.
Uniting AgeWell CEO Andrew Kinnersly said the generous support of sponsors and players at the Annual Charity Golf Day had a direct impact on the lives of older people and their families.
“This program helps people we support achieve their dreams, no matter what they might be,” he said.
Since our last golf day, we’ve been able to fulfil 20 wishes and have another 13 pending. Ninety wishes have been granted since the program began four years ago.
“We could not do this without our generous supporters. Their partnership in our work, financial commitment and time and energy taking part in the Charity Golf Day truly makes a difference.”
The on-course competition was very tight, with just half a point between first and third. Perpetual Trophy honours went to Stella Renovations, with a score of 58.
Runner-up was Procura, with a score of 58.25, while the team from Transform Physio and Asaleo Care (Tena) came in third with 58.5.
Uniting AgeWell would like to thank everyone involved in the Charity Golf Day for their generous support. Particular thanks go to Platinum Sponsors Blue Apache and Paywise Salary Packaging and Gold Sponsors Ascot Group, Cura Health Group and SJ Higgins.
