ELDERS’ South Gippsland Charity Golf Day raised around $12,000 at the Leongatha Golf Club on Friday.
The proceeds of this event will be donated to Tanner and Vanderland families of South Gippsland.
Aaron Tanner of Toora is an 11 year old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in September last year, and Elliot Vanderland of Leongatha is a four year old boy who was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia last December.
The money will support the families financially for medical costs and everyday living expenses.’
The winner of the day was Barry Thomas and the team from Bass Coast Shire, who got into the spirit of the rainbow themed day.
There were 28 teams participating on the day, travelling from as far as Bairnsdale and Pakenham.
Elders’ Jean O’Loughlin said the charity golf day continues to get bigger every year. This is the sixth year Elders has hosted the event.
