Take a Swing for Charity

Now in its 12th year, the Take a Swing for Charity Golf Day will support local charities to make a difference.

The charitable event was launched on Monday at Victoria Golf Club, where the Golf Day will be held on Wednesday 24 February.

Mayor Angela Long said the event was hosted by Council and local industry.

“Money raised over the past 11 years has provided significant support to many local charities, enabling some exciting new initiatives to be delivered to those most in need – and this little golf day has raised almost half a million dollars in that time,” Cr Long said.

“As a bonus, this event is a chance for business and industry to come together to have fun and network.”

This year’s recipients are the Keysborough Learning Centre and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

Major sponsors for the event include KPJ Group, Grenda Group, Future Recycling, Norden Group, Telstra Business Technology Centre and Erntec. A car from Dandenong Nissan and Kia is once again the prize for a hole in one.
