First National O’Donoghues Second Annual Red Cross Golf Day
Giving back to the community, raising over $40,000 for Red Cross
Held on Tuesday 14th June 2011, the day was a massive success with over $40,000 raised for Red Cross, via First National Foundation.
Established in 2006, the First National Foundation embodies the philanthropic efforts of over 450 First National Real Estate offices to provide financial support to charitable organisations across Australia. The First National Foundation has been founded to tangibly demonstrate First National Real Estate’s commitment to the community. As a registered, not for profit, Independent Corporation, the First National Foundation involves itself in fundraising in order to engage with the local and wider community, not to profit from it.
It was a fantastic day incorporating an 18 hole Ambrose, played at the Darwin Golf Club preceded with a light brunch and a BBQ afterwards. Every player received a presentation pack prior to tee off and enjoyed our special First National O’Donoghue hospitality during the afternoon.
Congratulations to the Gross Winners of the day who won our mystery prize … a scenic flight in a Squirrel Helicopter which landed on the Driving Range to collect them! There were plenty of other fantastic prizes on offer, thanks to our very generous sponsors and all players had the opportunity to win a Harley Davidson Motor Bike and Jet Ski. Also a big congratulations to the Harley Davidson Raffle winner, Brad Carey!
It was certainly inspirational to raise as much money as we did for The Red Cross who are always there for all of us, in time of need.
