Another successful Melbourne Market Golf Day charity event was held on the 15th March at the beautiful Heidelberg Golf Club. Over $110,000 was raised to provide essential funds for DEBRA Australia which was an amazing result. Golf day president Joe Amalfi and committee members from Fresh State, the Melbourne Markets Lions Club, Melbourne Market Authority, Heidelberg Golf Club, Toyota Material Handling, Art & Style and DEBRA were very happy with how the day went. The funds raised will support families living with EB on a national basis.
The weather was a perfect 23 degrees for the 27 teams that registered. Everyone had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thirty lovely volunteers from DEBRA and the Lions club generously donated their time and assisted with manning the holes and registration desk throughout the day.
A delicious dinner was held at the golf course after the event which was attended by 120 guests. Bianca Saunders was on hand as the guest speaker to talk about what it was like to live with EB. A cheque will be presented to DEBRA at an event scheduled in August 2019.
