A Lismore cancer charity that has raised close to $160,000 since its inception will be kicking off its fundraising efforts this year with its third annual charity golf day next Sunday.

More than 200 golfers will drive Jodie’s Inspiration Ltd into its 2018 fundraising season at the Lismore Workers Club.

The charity was founded by Lismore woman Jodie McRae, who passed away from breast cancer in 2016.

It has continued to raise funds for the cancer care centre at the Lismore Base Hospital, and last year secured $84,000.00 worth of scalp cooling machines for the centre.

The annual golf day event will see over 200 players take to the pristine Lismore course as they compete in a four-player ambrose. The two shotgun starts will occur at 7.00am and 12.30pm.

Players will be treated to a complementary BBQ and will be able to participate in various on-course fundraisers, such as a hole in one competition on the par three 8th hole, a longest drive for both male and female players on the 9th hole, plus a ‘buy a birdie’ putting competition on the 13th hole.

Organisers have thanked the generous support of sponsors, particularly major sponsor the Lismore Workers Club.

Players on the day will walk away with over $5,000.00 worth of prizes, ranging from new golf bags, shoes, complementary rounds of golf at some of the best courses on the Gold Coast and much more.

Holes on the course have been sponsored by generous local businesses, with money donated going directly towards supporting the work of Jodie’s Inspiration in the area of local palliative care services.

Charity chairman Jess Smith said the golf day was shaping up to be another wonderful community fundraising event.

‘We will be launching our 2018 Major Raffle at this weekend’s golf event and yet again we have some wonderful prizes to give away this year.

First prize is an Australian built 7 x 4 on road camper trailer suitable for four persons, donated by WOW Campers & Trailers Superstore. The second prize is a 4 Night P&O Cruise on the Pacific Aria departing Brisbane on 17 May 2019, visiting Hamilton Island.

The lucky winner of our third prize will take home a CHiQ 70” LED HD U70G8 Smart Television. Collectively over $12,000.00 worth of prizes will be won in this year’s Major Raffle.’

The hole sponsors are: Simes Bros Coaches, Somerville Laundry Lomax Solicitors, L J Hooker Lismore, WOW Campers and Trailers Superstore, Beaumont Tiles, Katrina Beohm Real Estate, Budget Eye Wear, Trevan Ford, Sidney & Hacking Plumbing, Katrina Beohm Real Estate, Signarama Casino, Bolt Barn, The Richmond Hotel, The Goonellabah Tavern, Spinifex Recruiting Byron Bay, RDS – Rendering, Driveways, Slabs, Perkins Caravans Lismore, Trenches McKenzie
