The members of the Byron Bay Hospital Auxiliary were thrilled to learn they were beneficiaries of the Byron Bay Golf Club’s (BBGC) recent Charity Day that raised over $4000.

The Auxiliary have been holding an annual Charity Golf Day for many years, but this year the Auxiliary had to cease all fundraising activities to prevent members potentially being exposed to the coronavirus. 

But Sue Charles, events coordinator at the BBGC, let the Auxiliary know that the club was going to undertake all necessary steps required to organise the 2020 Byron Bay Hospital Charity Golf day, and donate all monies to the Auxiliary.

‘This annual event at the club has been held for many years, so we felt it was vital to continue hosting the day, even in these uncertain times,’ Sue said.

Approximately 100 players enjoyed the beautiful conditions to raise money for the hospital auxiliary.

The $4,285 raised this year will go towards the purchase of equipment for palliative care patients who are in the hospital. 

Mollie Strong, president of the Byron Bay Auxiliary, thanked the Club members for all their past and ongoing support.

‘We are indebted to this wonderful club who, over all these years, have allowed the Auxiliary’s main fundraising event to occur there,’ Mollie said.
