SO45 Online Charity Golf Day is 10!
Friday 1st July see’s Dibden Golf Course host the 10th annual SO45 Online Charity Golf Day.
120 golfers are expected to take part in this years event. All attempting to be crowned champion golfer and win the prestigious Paul Brogan Memorial Trophy.
Paul a local man and a keen golfer sadly lost his life to cancer in 2012 and as he was a friend and a part of a local golf society we asked his family if we could name our main trophy in his memory.
On the day we have the 18 hole golf tournament followed by a BBQ, and then a raffle, auction and the golf presentation.
Ellie and her team on the refreshments side at the course and Anthony and his team on the golf side really help to make this event run smoothly working with the event organisers Michael & Donna Osman from Oyster Financial Planning.
All funds raised on the day are donated to local good causes. The Waterside Cancer Centre has been a major beneficiary over the last 10 years along with other SO45 causes. So far the team have raised £56,000 on the golf days alone and SO45 Online with the other events we have organised over the years including the SO45 Lottery have raised in total £92,000.
Michael set a target of raising £100,000 in the coming 10 years and with our golf day coming in July if we can raise at least £8,000 we will achieve this goal. Every penny raised stays in the SO45 postcode.
Lots of the golfers have played every year and really feel a part of the team which is fantastic.
Lots of local businesses help the fund-raising effort by sponsoring holes, golf prizes and donating raffle and auction prizes. If you would like to donate a prize on the day to aid the fund-raising please do get in touch by popping into our Oyster office in Hythe.
