WOMEN: Tee Off for Breast Cancer Trials Research

22 October 2020 proved to be a very successful day for fund raising for Breast Cancer Research at Cooroy Golf Club.

50 eager women set out in a blaze of pink to master the novelty course. The winning team consisted of Tina Thomas, Juliet Hall, Joyce McKay and Kaye Gilmour, with Chris Michael, Sarah Brogden, Amanda Tie and Margit Cruise coming second.  Pin shots went to Juliet Hall (twice) and Leith Barr, with Toni Mason winning the accuracy drive for nearest to Bundy Bear resplendent in a pink feather boa. Maria Taurer had reason to celebrate – her tee shot on the 10th somehow managed to find its way through the small gap in the toilet seat surrounding the hole to finish in the hole.  Congratulations on your hole-in-one, Maria.

The auction held after the game, very ably conducted by Kirsty Patten (who prefers playing soccer to golf), proved to be a huge success.  Her sense of humour struck a chord with those present and she managed to encourage the bidding to the point where $875 was raised from the items auctioned.

More was raised from a continuous raffle, competition fees, escape tickets, raffle of Dimples Scotch, a sausage sizzle and donations.  All up approximately $2 400 was raised – a very worthy amount.

Thanks to our sponsors Cooroy Country Wear & Jeanery and Noosa Cruises and all those members and friends who generously donated products and their valuable time to help this worthy cause.
