2013 Nomads / Allan Gray Charity Golf Day a raging success!
Mark Howard-Browne and his 2013 Charity Golf Day Committee are to be congratulated on their magnificent effort in raising $54,105 at Long Reef Golf Club on 26th November 2013.
132 participants enjoyed good weather, albeit windy, and the winning fourball was Dave Twycross, Jack Newton, Stephen Rix and Blake Windred.
Lauren McAlister of Cancer Council NSW was on hand to accept a cheque of $44K from Mark Howard-Browne and a further $10K was presented to Jack Newton for the furtherance of junior golf development.
This year’s event raised funds for Cancer Council NSW osteosarcoma research. This is the most common form of bone cancer which usually affects young children. The researchers from the Bone Research Program at the ANZ Research Institute are working to understand why Vitamin D helps to prevent bone cancers from growing and the money we raised will be directed into this grant and it will make a difference in raising awareness and growing our understanding of this rare cancer.
This was a join effort between the Nomads Sydney North and Nomads Sydney Souths club and we convey our heartfelt thanks to the fantastic sponsors and participants.
