2017 Golf Challenge Results

Thank you to all who participated in the 2017 Golf Challenge by way of sponsorship, donating prizes, playing on the day and/or purchasing raffle tickets.

We are delighted to announce we raised over $42,000 to make a difference in the lives of our Global Citizen Scholars.

Enormous gratitude to our overall sponsor Spirit Telecom, recently awarded the fastest internet service provider in Victoria, and our hole sponsors for their donations and support for this special event.

If you would like to consider your business supporting this day in 2018, we would be delighted to hear from you. To sponsor a hole, the cost associated is $2,500 of which $2,000 is a donation to the Scholarship Fund and is fully tax deductible. Alternatively, you may have an item you believe would be ideal for our online raffle, if so we would be very happy to hear from you. All donors are invited to contribute to the sample bag to supply promotional items and/or showcase their business. If you would like to know more, please make contact with the Foundation office.
