Record breaking Mayoral Charity Golf Day
Published on 20 December 2019
The 2019 Holcim Mayoral Charity Golf Day this year raised $25,211 for local beneficiaries, which works out at nearly $10,000 more than the previous highest amount, which was raised in 2018.
Mayor Kirk, along with Richard Savage and Rebecca MacLean from Holcim, on Tuesday night presented the proceeds of the day to representatives of Rotary Club of Goulburn, Endeavour Industries and the Lieder Theatre.
This year’s event attracted 130 golfers who competed on a hot and windy day on the 22nd November.
“It is brilliant to have broken the record for the total amount raised, but this was far above our expectations. I’d like to thank all of the local businesses who supported us through sponsorship, especially Holcim who have been our naming rights sponsor for the past seven years” said Mayor Bob Kirk.
“I would also like to thank the Rapid Relief Team for running the lunch BBQ on the day, and also Rotary Club of Goulburn who ran a breakfast for us.”
Rotary Club of Goulburn received 60% of the distribution, Endeavour Industries received 30% and the Goulburn Lieder Theatre received 10%. Riding for Disabled also ran a raffle on the day, taking the proceeds of ticket sales for their activities.
