The Bundaberg Foundation is becoming a not-for-profit community organisation which raises funds locally to spend on local health related Base Hospital and community-based projects.
The event held at North Bundaberg Golf Club in November was a great success and the Foundation is very grateful to have been the beneficiary of this annual event.
Foundation manager Maria Burnet said the Foundation provides the ‘extras’ which fall outside of government budget yet make a visit to Bundaberg Hospital more comfortable.
“It is fantastic to receive this amount of money as it will go a long way in helping us cross of one of the many wish list items of non-government funded equipment that our hospital needs,” Ms Burnet said.
“One hundred percent of this money will go soley to a piece of equipment which means the money is staying locally and helping local patients and hospital staff,” she said.
The Waves’ manager Brendan Royall said the success of this year’s event would not have been possible without the support from businesses who sponsored the day, in particular RCR Haden, and all those golfers who took part.
“Previously we have had great results with these annual golf days having donated over $20,000 back to various local charities so we are thrilled to be able to donate this amount to the Foundation,” he said.
