Golfers tee off for breast cancer research
More than 60 golfers teed off at the Royal Queensland Golf Club for the Annual The Clayfield /Rotary Club of Hamilton Charity Golf Day.
The Rotary Club of Hamilton has conducted the Charity Golf Day event for over 20 years, raising in excess of $250,000 for local community projects and charitable organisations.
This year’s beneficiary is Project Pink, a breast cancer fundraising initiative of the PA Research Foundation.
$15,000 was raised on the day through raffles, registration fees and donations. PA Research Foundation CEO Damian Topp was presented with a cheque by Rotary Club of Hamilton President Travis Pullen.
“The funds raised will go towards supporting life-saving breast cancer research at the PA Hospital Campus.
“Each year, more than 2,500 women in Australia lose their battle with breast cancer. These women are mothers, grandmothers, daughters and sisters – this disease does not discriminate which is why we are fundraising for the next big breakthrough via our Project Pink campaign.
“We are so grateful of the generosity from the Aveo Group, Rotary Club of Hamilton and all who took part in the Golf Day,” said Damian.
This fundraising initiative is part of an ongoing partnership between the Aveo Group and PA Research Foundation. Aveo communities nationwide are currently fundraising for Project Pink during October with the Aveo Group dollar matching all fundraising efforts.
