Take a swing to help charities at Motor Traders Golf Day

FOR 37 years, the Gladstone Hospital Auxiliary and other local charities have benefited from more than 100 people gathering for a game of golf and socialising.

The Annual Motor Traders Golf Day will be held this Wednesday, May 21.

And the organiser, the Gladstone Midday Rotary Club, hopes many people will come along to swing their clubs for a good cause.

Gladstone Midday Rotary Club member and event organiser Jeff Osborne said this year the club hoped to raise $10,000.

"Over a period of years, the event would have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars," Mr Osborne said.

"And the bulk of that money goes to the hospital auxiliary.

"We do retain some funds, which go into our community account and that is distributed to various charities throughout Gladstone, like Anglicare and the Gladstone Salvation Army."

For $25, participants compete in a three-person ambrose event.

A range of prizes is also up for grabs for competitors.

"I think we all know it's important to support charities," Mr Osborne said.

Nomination forms are available at the Gladstone Pro Shop. For more information phone Jeff on 0438 685 639.
