SVI Charity Golf Day raises $80,000!

Posted: 01st November 2017

We’re proud to announce that due to the generosity of our Golf Day sponsors and supporters, more than $80,000 was raised for SVI research at our 10th Annual Charity Golf Day on Friday October 27th. This brings our fundraising total for this annual event to close to $900,000!

Thanks to our platinum sponsor, Macquarie Leasing; we’d like to paritcularly thank Andrew Sidery and Jamie Stenhouse for their ongoing enthusiasm and generous support of the Day.

Thanks also to our two silver sponsors, Maxxia Australia and Alliance Insurance, our 11 bronze sponsors and four individual sponsors; and to our entertainers on the day for sharing their talents with us: singer Emily Soon, bagpiper Andrew Lesley and comedian George McNeill.

Like last year, Melbourne’s unpredictable weather cooperated and after a rainy and windy few days, produced a beautiful, sunny day for all participants.

As mentioned on the evening, government funding does not cover all of the costs of research, so we rely on support from individual and organisational donors to ensure we can continue to make life-changing discoveries.

Thank you all again for your support; we look forward to seeing you next year for another fantastic day!
