It provided participants an opportunity to help create a lasting effect in the community.
On Friday March 23rd, Geelong’s top businesses got together in support of St Laurence Community Services for an afternoon of golf and networking.
The objective of the day was to raise some much needed funds in support of St Laurence disability services. And of course, to provide a much needed day out of the office socialising with peers! Despite the weather, success was achieved on both counts with over $4000 being raised on the day.
The fundraising event consisted of an afternoon of golf, dinner, a live auction, and entertainment. St Laurence has been hosting this event annually and is looking forward to having even more businesses get on board for next year.
Also celebrated on the evening was St Laurence’s 10 year relationship with Ryrie Office Machines. Ryrie Office Machines have been the major partner of St Laurence during this time and their financial support is invaluable to the successful continuation of community services offered by St Laurence.
“Community fundraising events such as these truly show Geelong’s sense of community spirit and willingness to give to community service initiatives”. “Without the support and continuous generosity of these corporate bodies, our efforts within the community would fall short.” Toby oConner, CEO.
The winning teams received a cheque for $750, kindly donated by the Bank of Queensland Newtown branch. BOQ also donated $500 cash for the raffle winner, who ironically, was Bendigo Bank!!
