Community swings into action for good cause
LOCAL golfers came together recently to support an animal rescue service with their annual fundraiser.
CQ Pet Rescue hosted their annual golf day at the Emerald Golf Club on Saturday, March 27 to help them continue their rescue, fostering and rehoming efforts for animals in Central Queensland.
Starting with a 10.30am tee-off, a number of teams from around the Central Highlands competed on the day, consisting of golfers and non-golfers alike.
Emerald Golf Club publicity officer Peter Bailey said it was a fantastic day.
“We had a great field of players,” Mr Bailey said.
“It was a popular event for a worthy cause and a great day from the club’s perspective.
“The winning team was Scott Cooper, Cec Ivers and Tim Eversham.
“Thank you to all the players and visitors for getting into the spirit of things and supporting a good cause,” he said.
Each team teed off from a different hole on the day, and refreshments were on offer to keep players hydrated and golfing their best.
CQ Pet Rescue Fundraising Co-ordinator Maddy Day said the day was “very successful”.
“It was a great day, and everyone is looking forward to next year,” Miss Day said.
“Thank you to all sponsors and everyone that attended to help make the day successful.
“We met our fundraising goal, raising close to $5,000, which will help us to continue what we’re doing.”
