Hospice to host its 5th Annual Fundraising Golf Day
Time to dust off the golf clubs, polish the shoes and get ready to team up with your mate in the Stepping Stone Hospice Annual “Tee for Two” Golf Day, to be held on Thursday April 16, 2020 at Reading Country Club!
Since its inception 5 years ago, the hospice’s golf day has raised just over R600 000 over the years, making it one of their bigger fundraising events of the year. “We pride ourselves of the fact that we bring a well-organized and fun-filled golf day to the players and the sponsors alike,” says Marketing & Fundraising Manager, Marietjie Tame.
“We hope to break all records this year, this being our first golf day of the new decade,” she says.
The 2019 golf day saw 124 players take to the field and with the help of some incredible sponsors, hospice managed to raise the incredible amount of R212 000, of which R153 000 was actual profit.
The format of play remains a Betterball Stableford with the fee per player set at R550 (or R2200 per 4-ball). The price includes the player’s green fees, a R50 halfway voucher and prize-giving dinner, but excludes the renting of a golf cart.
Hole sponsorships range between R1000 and R3000. Sponsors are invited to man the hole on the day, set up and distribute any marketing material and engage with the golfers. A full field of 132 players are expected to participate.
