Charity Golf Day a hole in one for SVI Research

Melbourne’s dreary weather for our 14th Charity Golf Day wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of all those who participated.

As per previous years, we had no problems getting enthusiastic players and sponsors signing up to support the event and raise funds.

The effort (and fun) was all worth it – an incredible $160,000 was raised on the day!

“We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome,” Professor Natalie Sims, SVI Deputy Director said. “The energy on the day was great and I could see everyone was enjoying the opportunity to get out on the course to enjoy a bit of friendly competition and raise money to support our research.”

We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s Charity Golf Day when we’ll share news about life-saving discoveries your support has enabled.
