The Mildura Fruit Company, NCF Exports and Seaway Intermodal Annual Charity Golf Day, which was held on Thursday, November 14, has again been hailed as a great success both financially and for it’s fun and enjoyment. This year’s proceedings commenced with a river cruise the evening before (13th ) to Trentham Estate Winery for dinner and entertainment, with a capacity crowd of about 160 people enjoying the evening.

The golf day commenced Thursday morning at 7am with a breakfast, followed by golf, with a capacity field of 180 players which included people from as far away as Japan and New Zealand. This was followed by lunch and the raffle draws which was attended by 230 people who enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon. The day concluded around 6pm with a lot of tired but happy people.

With the fantastic support of our major sponsors locally, nationally and also from overseas and the support from the attendees on the day, this year we managed to raise a fantastic $90,500 for local charities.

Since the event commenced back in 2005, we have raised a massive $676,000 which has been donated to a diverse range of charities and community organisations.

This includes scholarships for horticultural course’s at La Trobe University, local cancer support group, Mildura Specialist School, Make a Wish Foundation as well as other charities which assist disabled and under privileged children and families from Sunraysia.

We have also made donations to purchase much needed special equipment for the local hospital, ambulance and State Emergency Services over the years.
