Tee off for charity at Golfing for Gabe’s Day

July 21, 2017 by  

Local businesses and golfers are being invited to sign up for the ultimate charity challenge being staged as part of Golfing for Gabe’s Day.

The event, which has been held annually for the past 22 years, raises funds for St. Gabriel’s School, which caters for children who have disabilities in Castle Hill.

The venue for this year’s Golfing for Gabe’s Day, supported by Castle Hill RSL, is Pitt Town’s Lynwood Country Club.

Founding organiser of the golf day Ray Millers said many local firms who had been supporting the event since its launch have already signed up to take part again this year, and marketing services are attracting great interest from throughout the Hills District.

He said the golf day, to be held on August 4, not only provides a day out but also offers an opportunity for business proprietors to engage in social networking while also helping kids with special needs.

Professional Golf Association member and local golf instructor David Reckless will be in attendance to ensure the day goes smoothly.

All the fun begins at 7:00 am with breakfast, followed by a shotgun tee off at 8:00 am and the presentation and lunch at 1:00 pm. Participants will also have an opportunity to compete in activities such as `Beat the Pro’.

St. Gabriel’s Katrina Rindfleish said:

“All funds raised will go towards The Playground Project, a major project the school is undertaking to deliver a larger more creative solution for our outdoor learning space.”
