Take a Swing for Charity Golf Days
The City of Greater Dandenong through its business networking unit SEBN (South East Business Networks), together with our key corporate sponsors, holds an annual afternoon of golf followed by dinner and charity auction to raise funds for local beneficiaries.
Thanks to the generous support and sponsorship of local businesses and manufacturers who have chipped in over the last seven years, local charities have benefited from over $350,000 in funds raised through this annual event to support crucial programs and activities that could otherwise not run.
Take a Swing for Charity 2018
Monday 26 February
Settler's Run Golf and Country Club
Great weather, great venue, great golf (?) and a terrific camaraderie throughout the day. Thanks to local business and industry, the CGD-Industry Take a Swing for Charity golf day is a special event in Greater Dandenong’s calendar and once again their generosity of time, money and spirit has resulted in a fabulous outcome for this year’s charity recipients - Cornerstone and Avocare - with more than $43,000 raised.
These funds will enable both charities to continue to provide services and material aid to help those most in need in our community. Funds will be used to provide breakfasts for 12 months for local secondary school students and hygiene packs for those living on the street, in cars, in rooming houses etc.
A new ‘Changing Face of Poverty Network’ will be established, bringing service providers together to share information and resources. This Network will also enable workers to gain a holistic understanding of the issues facing their clients and collaboratively plan and address interventions more effectively than one agency working on its own could ever do. This network will be facilitated by Avocare.
