Melbourne Market Golf Day 2016

Melbourne Market Charity Golf Day exceeds expectationsMelbourne-Market-Golf-Day-Logo

The 2016 Melbourne Market Golf Day exceeded all expectations and has been heralded as the most successful golf day the market has ever hosted.

124 players, 11 Tee Sponsors, 6 Gold Sponsors and 4 AFL players enjoyed the stunning greens and fairways of the Heidelberg Golf Club on a warm Autumn day on Friday 15 April.

Up for grabs was a shiny BMW compliments of Bundoora BMW and a new forklift thanks to Toyota Material Handling on the Hole in One competitions but sadly no winners this year.

Other competitions included closest to the pin, longest drive, chipping comp thanks to CHEP and the popular shoot out at the end of the day.    Followed by an auction of more prizes over dinner and of course the drawing of the Monster Raffle (winners published below).

Guest AFL stars were auctioned off at the beginning of play with Debra Australia Ambassador and Brownlow Medalist John Platten being bought by the Timeless Watches team and Essendon players Brent Stanton and MIchael Hurley bought by the boys at Brolec.

The winning team at the end of the day were ‘Jason’s Mob’ made up of Jason Sgro, Michael Surace, Sean Ronan and Stephen D’andrea who walked away with the Perpetual Trophy and golf bags generously donated by NAB Agribusiness.

The DEBRA Australia supports families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) which is a rare disease where the skin blisters and peels at the slightest touch. Living with EB has been likened to living with third degree burns. It is very painful, and sufferers must be bandaged every day with dressings to protect and medicate their wounds.  For more information go to www.debra.org.au
