Thank you to our 135 guests (golfers and non) who participated in this year’s Marcus Oldham Annual Fundraising Golf Day held at Eynesbury Golf Club, Eynesbury on Friday 28 February. $33,000 was raised on the day!
A beautiful sunny day with some great golf played (see results below) and non-golfers were entertained in the homestead by the delightful guest speaker Jane Webster, (My French Table), author, French wine and gastronomic tour guide extraordinaire. Lunch was hosted by the bubbly Catriona Rowntree, (TV Travel host and Ambassador for Australian Wool), who provided a lot of laughs and banter amongst the crowd. Auctioneering this year was well delivered by our very own graduate James Bufton (FM 94) and friend Jock Richmond as they ensured generous bidding for auction items. At the end of the lunch the Charity Helicopter ‘Golf Ball Drop’ took place with 500 balls dropped from the skies with the nearest to the pin resulting in a $2000 cash prize. This year’s winner – Cottage by the Sea!
Funds raised have being allocated to the Marcus Oldham Foundation’s Recreational Hub project, and part proceeds were donated to ‘Cottage by the Sea’. Surplus food on the day went to SecondBite. www.secondbite.org and www.cottagebythesea.com.au
