Calling all golf enthusiasts to tee off for charity

Local businesses are invited to take part in the 7th annual VBD Chartered Accountants charity golf day. Golfers and sponsors are invited to help raise over $15,000 for The Fred Hollows Foundation and Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise.

The 7th annual VBD Charity Golf Day will be held on Friday 28 May 2010, with the aim to raise over $15,000 for The Fred Hollows Foundation and Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise.

The golf day provides networking, promotional and social opportunities for businesses over a round of golf on the picturesque Merewether golf course.

In the six years to date, VBD Chartered Accountants have raised over $60,000 for charities and organisations. With the golf day now in it’s 7th year, VBD invite business owners and managers to take part in what is increasingly seen as one of the best charity golf days in our region, as either a sponsor, a player, or simply by donating a prize or cash.

Partner of VBD Chartered Accountants, Greg Valentine, believes that the event is a great opportunity for local business people to network, promote their business, relax and at the same time, contribute to worthwhile causes.

“The Charity Golf Day is a great reason to pull out the clubs, and support two organisations that really need our funding to continue their great work.” says Valentine.

“We are supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation and the Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise because our values really lie in what these two organisations are striving to achieve – The Fred Hollows Foundation in restoring sight to those suffering from avoidable blindness, and Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise for the projects they carry out locally, nationally and internationally.”

“If you're not in a position to sponsor, or you’re not a golfer, you can support the event by donating cash or prize donation on our website at www.vbd.com.au
