Charity golf day for Westpac chopper


The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter will host its annual Corporate Charity Golf Day on Friday November 15 at Ballina Sports & Golf Club.

Major sponsor Yellow Pages has come on board once again to support the charity golf day in which teams of four will play an ambrose competition over 18 holes.

There will be two tee-off times in 2013, being 7am and 1pm, with up to 32 teams per tee-off.

The Yellow Pages Corporate Charity Golf Day is an opportunity to network with clients and business associates in a social setting while fundraising for Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

Several holes will have unique challenges for the day including a raft chip in to the water on the fourth, a sporting hole in which golfers exchange their clubs for bats, racquets and footballs and a chance to fly a helicopter (simulator) while waiting for your putt.

Presentations will take place on the 19th hole, in the golf club, at 6pm with the results calculated over the two tee-off times.

Blackburn Prior has donated the prize for nearest to the pin on one of the course’s par threes and there are lots of prizes up for grabs for placing teams, including last place. Raffles and auctions will take place during the day with prizes donated by Cummings Electrical & Lifestyle Centres.

Places are still available for teams on both tee-off times for $200 per team and can be booked by calling 6627 444 or emailing [email protected]

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
