Held annually in support of our Kokoda Trek, the Charity Golf Day this year raised more than $30,000, ensuring that NSW Police Legacy can continue to send legatees out on this life-changing experience.
The day started at a chipper 6am, with a BBQ breakfast and plenty of coffee to get our golfers up to speed. Tee off was 7am, with nearly 150 participants trekking off across the green. While (golf) shots were fired, our diligent Police Legacy staff, legatees, and volunteers were setting up the clubhouse for the lunch and presentations.
Further fundraising activities continued after lunch, with live and silent auctions, the running of a raffle, and the announcements of the prizes for the golf round just completed. Guest speakers included Deputy Commissioner David Hudson and Matthew Astill, Operations Manager of Security Linfox. The undeniable star of the show, however, was NSW Police Legatee Blake Brotherson. Blake spoke very movingly about his connection over the years with Police Legacy, and how this link has improved not only his own life, but also the lives of his brother Ewen and mother Mel.
Huge thanks to the Golf Day organising committee, MC Erin Molan, and to everybody who came along and made the day such a success.
