Funds raised that will help change more than 60 lives through a scholarship

There were no downpours or gusty winds at the annual Caroline Chisholm Education Foundation’s golf day on Monday 14 May at the Commonwealth Golf Course. In fact, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a game of golf.

We had 80 players from corporates and industry, with more attendees joining us for dinner. Golfing highlights included the opportunity to win a new Nissan or Kia car with the hole-in-one competition on the seventh, and engage Steffan Scutti from the Australian Longest Driving Team to take the team drive on the 18th.

The final wrap up was competing for the $5,000 putting competition, which had no winners this year. Better luck in 2019 as we would love to see someone walk away with a new car or the cash.

After enjoying the scrumptious dinner we were entertained by John Shore from Ray White Chelsea with the annual auction.  Again, we had some very competitive bidding for over 25 auction items which included sporting memorabilia, food and wine, electrical goods, entertainment, and other donations.

Thanks to wonderful sponsors and good player support the day was the highly successful, raising funds that will help change over 60 lives through a scholarship.

The Foundation would also like to thank everyone across Chisholm who helped with finding sponsors and golf attendees, or donated auction items. It was a wonderful team effort with the money raised enabling the Foundation to continue to provide financial hardship scholarships to eligible students at all campuses.
