Pink Ball competition winners – Pam Woolcott, Deb Stewart, Kerry Lollback and Heidi Darwell.

The Byron Lady Golfers were pretty in pink as they set out for the annual Pink Ball fundraising day, but not before they participated in some fun activities, namely honing their chipping skills by taking aim at various sized buckets – and Bra Pong.

Unfortunately, there were no points scored on the day in either competition however, armed with some wonderful prizes for post-golf pampering, Tracey Timperley was awarded a ‘closest to the cup’ in the bra pong and Marcia Kelly won the Nutrimetics mystery gift bag for her wonderful ‘technique’.

It was then onto the actual golf and the Pink Ball competition with Deb Stewart, Kerry Lollback, Pam Woolcott and Heidi Darwell taking out first prize, closely followed by the team of Carol Wells, Sally Symons and Val Ryken, while Vicki Mortimer scooped the individual Stableford event with 35 points.

Almost $120 was raised from the pre-match games with more funds expected in the coming weeks from the club’s Mother’s Day raffle which will all go to breast cancer research as part of this year’s Mother’s Day Classic event, an annual, national fun run/walk for breast cancer research.

Adding to the fundraiser, Ballina Cinemas will host a ‘chick flick’ night on Thursday 19 May for a screening of the new comedy release, How to Please a Woman.

There will be pre-show wine and cheese from 6.30pm. Tickets are $15.00 and can be pre-purchased by emailing [email protected]

The Mother’s Day Classic will this year celebrate its 25th anniversary and the 10th event hosted at Missingham Park Amphitheatre, Ballina on Sunday 8 May from 8am.
