Golf day to raise funds

THERE are still spaces left on the green for those who'd like to have a day of golf and raise money for a local organisation.

The annual Warwick Dementia Support Group will hold its annual golf day next Sunday, November 27, as it continues to raise money to find a permanent home.

With the support of the community, the group has already raised an impressive $250,000 - but Greg Eather said more was needed to make the dream of a centre a reality.

"We'll raise money on the day by holding a raffle at $2 a sheet and the winner will be drawn that afternoon," he said.

"This is our seventh annual golf day and they've always been well supported.

"Anyone is welcome to come along. It's a fun charity day and you don't have to be a professional to join in."

Mr Eather's mother Pam, whose husband passed away with dementia, will also be on hand to encourage teams on the green.

The groups will tee off in a four-ball ambrose from 10.30am.

That will be followed by a presentation at 5pm at the club house.

Numbers are limited and players are urged to register their groups by calling the golf club shop on 4661 3664.

Those who forget to register can do so on the day, Sunday, November 27, until 10am.
