More than $3,000 raised in Golf Day fundraiser
Who ever said you can’t mix business with pleasure? A group of 25 like-minded business owners sure put that theory to the test last month when they attended a fundraising Golf Day, all with the goal of raising money for Muscular Dystrophy care and research.
The successful event was held at the Eynesbury Golf Club, Victoria, on 2 March raising $3,120 for Muscular Dystrophy Australia and no doubt a few glasses of celebratory beer were also raised at the end of the day.
This was the first Golf Day organised by Tony Furci, Managing Director of 2 Feel Good Personal Health (2FG) Essendon. Tony initiated the event after being inspired by his cousin Daniella Villano, who works as the MDA Neuromuscular Nurse Coordinator Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.
“I’ve known about the fantastic work MDA does for the MD community through my cousin Dani and I decided I really wanted to do my part for a charity that helps so many people living with the condition,” said Tony.
After such a fantastic response Tony is looking forward to hosting the event again next year around March 2015 and hopes to turn it into an annual fundraiser. The aim of the event is to raise funds for MDA while also providing a fun and memorable day, with a social BBQ and beer as the sun goes down.
“It was a wonderful day, with all the funds being raised through entry and sponsorships. There was such a great feeling in the air, it was a beautiful sunny day so perfect conditions for a round of golf, all the while knowing the money was going towards such a worthy cause,” said Tony.If you would like any further information about the Golf Day or to register your interest for next year’s event, please call MDA on (03) 9320 9555.
