Locals have hit mark on the golf course and helped local patients at the Bundaberg Health Service Foundation’s recent Charity Golf Day.
The Bundaberg Foundation is becoming a dynamic, not-for-profit community organisation which raises funds locally to spend on local health related Base Hospital and community-based projects.
The SSS Strawberries Charity Golf Day held on April 22 was a four-player ambrose event at Bargara Golf Club on Sunday. Local business SSS Strawberries was the platinum sponsor of the event having pledged $2000 to the golf day.
Without the support of local businesses like Infant’s Friend, Des Allen & Co Funerals, Wide Bay Australia, Ocean Pacific, Bundaberg Marineland, Donovan’s Farms, Mark Haster Painting, McDonalds, Ross Cray Motor City, Bundaberg Regional Council, Bundaberg Chainsaw and Mower Services, Teaspoon and Supa IGA Bargara, this event would not have been possible.
“The event was a great success, especially as it was our first charity golf day – and we are proud to have raised $8640,’’ Foundation manager Maria Burnet said.
Profits from the charity golf day will be used to help fund the introduction of specialised transport carts to make it easier and alleviate any distress for patients, carers and visitors trying to access Bundaberg Hospital after parking their vehicles.
