More than $20,000 was raised for the Elsie’s Retreat Project at a golf fundraising held by ClubsNSW Central Coast Region on Friday, May 7.
Approximately 114 people teed off first thing in the morning at Wyong Golf Club, and there were several fundraising events across the day.
Oana McBride represented the project at the event.
“The result is incredible, especially for a small group of people; the generosity is so appreciated,” she said.
“The funds will be used towards equipment and education for nurses within the Local Health District to assist with palliative care, both in hospital and in-home care situations.
“I was truly gobsmacked when the total raised was revealed.
“The funds have come at a critical time for us to enable us to move forward with the next phase for Elsie’s Retreat Project.”
ClubsNSW Central Coast Region Committee Chair, Phil Walker, said it was encouraging to see the level of support towards such an excellent local facility.
“I applaud all those involved and those who contributed towards such a fantastic result,” he said.
Sponsors and attendees included Wyong Leagues Club, North Construction, Gosford RSL, Ettalong Diggers, Sharp DS Central Coast, Lion, CUB and Vintage House Wines.
It was the team from Ettalong Diggers which emerged as victor on the day.
