The Gordonvale Police Charity Golf Day has been a highlight on the far northern charity fundraising calendar in excess of 30 years.
Our local officers and community members have raised approximately $400,000 for local charities, all the while ensuring we have a lot of fun as well.
Yarrabah Officer in Charge, Senior Sergeant Erin Shawcross explained that whilst the majority of the money raised is donated to Variety Queensland, The Children Charity, the organising committee ensures some funds remain locally to help kids in need.
“Only last year the golf day made a sizeable contribution to a 15-year-old Babinda girl battling cancer. Previous years saw funds go to a local family who’s young child was suffering a terminal illness as well as to three young children of a local police officer who passed away suddenly whilst getting ready for work,” Senior Sergeant Shawcross said.
“The aim of the day is to raise as much money as possible for local kids in need.
“This year we are proud to say that Pacific Toyota have come on board to support our event and we would love for more businesses, community groups, organisations and individuals from the wider community to come on down, enjoy a social game of golf, a chat and lots of fun.”
Everyone is welcome to attend this years’ charity golf day and those not wanting to play golf all are welcome to the massive charity auction which kicks off at 4.30pm on the driving range of the golf club.
