On August 28, the Muswellbrook RSL Golf Club played host to the inaugural Upper Hunter Charity Golf Day in support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
The golf day attracted more than 40 teams for a fun day of golfing which resulted in $30,000 to be raised for the community’s own Rescue Helicopter and ensuring no one ever has to pay to be assisted.
Community Liaison Office for the Rescue Helicopter Service, Danny Eather said the day went even better than he could’ve expected and thanked those involved for their time and generosity.
“Our sponsors and the wider upper Hunter business community are just amazing supporters of the Service. Whether it has been cash or in-kind support they have all gone above and beyond to make the first year an amazing success,” he said. “The rescue helicopter service wouldn’t exist without the continued support of the community.”
Danny also said it was a massive team effort in bring the day together, with thanks to the members of the Lions Club of Muswellbrook and the Lioness Club of Muswellbrook who worked alongside our Helicopter volunteers on the day. Special thanks also to the Daryl Egan and his team at Muswellbrook RSL Golf Club.
PowerFm and 2NM’s Stolzy and Jessica hosted their live show on the day, with a swag of special guests that were participating in the Golf Day. Well done to all involved who made the day a success.
Overall winners of the golf day were the Muswellbrook RSL team of Brodern Adam-Smith, Andrew Spradbrow, Lachlan Nicol & Hayden Nicol. Well done!
