Gulgong Golf club goes pink to fight against breast cancer

Gulgong Golf Course became a collage of pink last Saturday when the Gulgong Golf Club held its annual “Pink Day” in support of Tee off for Breast Cancer Trials.

“The day has now been running in October for the past seven years and is becoming more popular each year”. Said the event organiser Julianne Furney.

Eighty six Golfers participated in this year’s event, with every one of them dressed in something pink.

The eventual winners of the day were Paul Nagle and Glen Thompson who were presented with the Mary Moore Trophy by John Moore as well as meat and beer vouchers.

There were prizes for everyone and an auction.

The auction items were a two cartons of beer won by Troy Mckellar and a Jim Bean Barrel fridge won by Tony Harrison.

President of The Gulgong Golf Club, Mal Mallinson said

“It has been an exceptional day with good fun, good friends and a good cause. It is a credit to the town of Gulgong.”

Gulgong Golf club to run another charity day

Gulgong Golf Club will be holding a Corporate Charity Day on November 11.

Funds raised will go to The Gulgong Bush Fire Brigade who will use the funds for much needed training areas and hose nozzles.

Funds will also go to the Gulgong Hospital Auxiliary who will use the funds for a new blood machine, exercise bike and privacy curtains.

The day will be a three person Ambrose at a cost of $150 per team. This includes the golf, lunch and dinner at the RSL club.

There will also be an auction after the dinner with prizes being donated by business owners of the town.

Get your mates together and register for this worthy cause.

The Pink Project

The colour pink is fun, it is vibrant, it is bright and it has long been associated with the fight against breast cancer.

But, there is nothing pretty about breast cancer, it does not deserve to be associated with such a great colour.

That is why Project Pink is out for revenge on the disease that affects so many families in Australia, to make pink just a pretty colour again.

Hold your own pink party. How will you fundraise for Project Pink?

Maybe a morning tea, a pink day or even a pink night out.
