The Tomaree Breast Cancer Support Group's committee would like to say a huge thank you to the Management, Staff and Members of Nelson Bay Golf Club for helping to make our Charity Golf Day a "Roaring Success". Due to the amazing generosity of our Sponsors, Donors and of course our Lady Members we raised the incredible sum of $10,000.00.
Our sincere thanks to you and the members of The Board and to Natalie and her team in the office. A very special thank you to the girls on Reception they were exceptionally helpful. Terry and the Bar Staff were fantastic as were Maurie, Warren, Maria and the boys in the Pro Shop. Greg and his Green staff were, as usual, extremely supportive and helpful. We would like to acknowledge the hard work and enthusiasm they all put into the day. We are very lucky to have such wonderful people employed at our Golf Club.
The theme of the day was 'The Roaring 20's'. The ladies did not disappoint and turned up attired in some amazing costumes. Flappers adorned in boas, beads and feathers were joined by gangsters brandishing plastic pistols. They all teed up for a fun filled game of golf.
The 'Party Hole' was manned by Club Members, Jeff Melrose, Bill Harding, Peter Griffin and Neil Gouge who were dressed very colourfully in the theme of the day. The ladies were served champagne and cake while our 'Hotshots', Graham Allen and Peter Sutton took their shot across the lake for the cost of a gold coin.
It was all great fun and our resident photographer, Dave Flatt, managed to capture the essence of the day with some amazing photos which have been posted on the Club's website.
The Function Room decorated by Sarah & Amy from A Beautiful Occasion looked sensational decked out in pink and white with roses and feathers adorning the tables. A lovely lunch was served by Tanya and Will, followed by a delicious cupcake. It really was a lovely day.
Once again, our sincere thanks to you and all the members and staff of Nelson Bay Golf Club. The support we received as usual was outstanding. The funds raised on the day will enable us to continue supporting people suffering breast cancer in our community. I am sure you will agree it was all worth it.
