MEMBERS of The Lakes Golf Club, one of Australia’s most prestigious and progressive private clubs, have raised $112,403 for The Nelune Foundation whose aim is to “help patients fight cancer with dignity”. The club’s board and members donated the championship golf course where 136 golfers participated and teed off in the inaugural Lakes Members’ Charity Golf Day. Funds raised for Nelune will assist in delivering equipment and services for the Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre at Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick. Co-Founder of The Nelune Foundation Nelune Rajapakse OAM was delighted with the event’s success. “I am overwhelmed by the generosity displayed by the people at The Lakes Golf Club,” Nelune said. “ To have raised over $100,000 to help build The Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre is an achievement for which the members and their friends should be very proud.” The Lakes Golf Club president Michael Joseph explained the key objectives in running the event. “It was the members and the board’s intention to do three things – make a significant financial contribution to the local community as befitting a leading Australian golf club; create an event that we can be proud of and have the men and women of The Lakes working together on a major project, he said. Golf clubs to benefit IN an effort to support the sustainability and health of golf clubs Golf Queensland has appointed a new team member.
