9th Annual Cystic Fibrosis Golf Classic
The unexpected rain didn’t dampen spirits at the 9th annual George Jones Cystic Fibrosis Golf Classic hosted at Lake Karrinyup Country Club in November last year.
Despite the rainy weather, spirits at the annual event to raise much needed funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis (CF) were high! An incredible 32 teams took to the prestigious course at Lake Karrinyup Country Club to compete in the name of charity. Later in the day the players were joined by their guests and filled the dining room for a delicious three-course dinner. They were entertained by the always vibrant MC Steve Mills and special guest speaker Caz Boyd.
Players and guests who attended the event contributed to one of the most successful years to date, raising over $115,000 which will go towards critical CF research development and supporting families affected by CF in WA.
The Golf Classic has a history of contributing significantly to CF research and this year we were excited to announce the appointment of an additional two PhD Top Up Scholarships for WA CF researchers: Renee Ng and Naomi Chapman.
Thank you to our long-term platinum sponsor George Jones Family Foundation and gold sponsors Gillard Builders, Arc Infrastructure, AMS, Qube, Gulf Hydraulics, National Geotech and Money Partners. We’d also like to thank the silver and iron sponsors, and our event sponsors Lake Karrinyup Country Club, Range Ford, Trident Insurance, Simpson Estate, Seashells and Mondo Butchers. The ongoing success of this event is attributed to the continued support from these supporters and the hard-working committee members: Heath Gillard, Hayley Gillard, Di Gillard and Emma Bacci.
This year will be the 10th year anniversary of the event and we’ll be aiming to increase the funds raised to over $1m.
