In 2020 the 31st Annual Rotary Charity Golf Day, in conjunction with Maroondah City Council, raised over $7000 to fund local community projects. This was achieved through the participation of 15 corporate teams, 60 players who had a great day of golf and in the spirit of charity, generously contributed to the result.
The success of the event relies on the generous support of local organisations who through sponsorships, provision of goods and vouchers for raffles held on the day or cash donations.
Special thanks to our key supporting organisations, The Hendrie Group (Gold Sponsor) who entered 4 teams, Bendigo Bank Mooroolbark and Bendigo Bank Mount Evelyn (Silver Sponsors) plus Millar & Merrigan and Stevens Glass (Bronze Sponsors).
Thanks to Maroondah City Council for again making the Dorset Golf Course available for the day and their further support through raffle donations of golf merchandise from their shop.
The funds raised go to our continued funding of local charities and organisations such as the Maroondah Hospital Mental Health Unit, Helping Hand Foodbank, Treasured Babies, Swinburne Young Mums and Safe Futures Domestic Violence Support. Also supported from these funds are many youth development activities such as Speech Contests for both primary and secondary school students and leadership programs
The success of the day relies on the active volunteering of Rotary members, partners and friends of the Rotary Club.
