Golfing for a great cause
THE Dalby Golf Club will be a sea of pink today, as the club hosts its inaugural Pink Day.
The charity event is open to all golfers in the region, and is raising money for the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia.
The event was postponed after the original date three weeks ago was abandoned due to rain.
With anticipation for the event now sky-high, the club is preparing for a successful day.
Dalby Golf Club member Jan Macmaw said the day was open to everyone and the cause was close to many members' hearts.
"Basically, we want everyone to dress in pink and come out and enjoy the day while raising much needed funds for the Breast Cancer Institute Australia which conducts breast cancer clinical trials research for the prevention of and cure to breast cancer,” Macmaw said.
"Recently, we have had lady members who have had breast cancer so we felt that it was something we wanted to do as a club to support those who have been affected.”
It will be a two-person ambrose event, with an opening tee-off time at 11am.
There will be fundraisers throughout the day, as the club tries to raise as much as it can for the cause.
"The quality of the golf played is not the focus of the day, it is a chance to celebrate being with friends and enjoying the outdoors whilst donating to a good cause,” Macmaw said.
"There will be a barbecue in operation as well as raffles on the day.”
The event begins at 11am today, at the Dalby Golf Club. It costs $30 per person to play, and the event will be a two person ambrose.
