The 9th Annual Marcus Oldham Golf Day was again held at Eynesbury Golf Course. There were smiles all round when the sun greeted players to the pro-am standard course. During the game golfers were given the opportunity to some delicious lamb cutlet tastings and carcass weighing competitions, courtesy of JBS, longest drive, nearest to the pin and beat the pro.
Golfers returned to drinks, live music by Catherine Shelley and Buddy Holly and lunch in the homestead marquee. This year’s master of ceremonies Will McLachlan showed his talents as he entertained guests, introduced lunchtime speaker John Silvester (crime reporter and co-author of the Underbelly series) and awarded golf prizes (see below for results). He and the fantastic salesman, Nick Strauss (Director Berwick Motors) sold auction items and promoted and awarded the raffle draw.
Monies raised on the day have gone to the Marcus Oldham Foundation to assist with the building program and part proceeds to SecondBite, who with their assistance, 40 leftover morning tea packs and 15 kg of roasted meats from the lunch went to the Geelong outpost to help feed the homeless.
The day is only a success with the wonderful help from our supporters.
