Fundraising was in full swing at the annual Wee Waa ‘Tee Off for Breast Cancer’ golf day.
Attendees dressed in pink to reflect the worthy cause and the clubhouse looked particularly ‘rosy’ decked out in beautiful pink decorations from precious peonies to polka dot cups.
“It was a lovely day and everyone looked so pretty in pink,” said one of the event organisers Anna Baird.
Fourteen ladies from Wee Waa and Narrabri braved the cooler conditions and played a nine-hole stableford individual event, teeing off to raise funds for breast cancer research.
The winner on the day was June Lang (Wee Waa) with Louise Penberthy (Narrabri) placing second and Kate Knight (Wee Waa) third.
Nearest the pin on the 18th was June Lang and the captain’s award went to Lyn Almagro.
There were also prizes handed out for ‘pinkness’ when it came to fashion and every golfer took home a pink golf ball.
About 30 people attended the lunch after play and COVID-19 precautions were in place.
“We had beautiful salads and frittatas and even pink punch made with grapefruit juice prepared by the Wee Waa lady golfers,” said Mrs Baird.
The charity event raised an impressive $1024 for breast cancer research.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
And unfortunately, its incidence is increasing – with one in seven Australian women and one in 675 Australian men expected to be diagnosed in their lifetime.
It’s a disease that impacts too many people’s lives but the fundraising initiative is a way for people to show their support and assist critical research.
“Overall, a fabulous effort by our small band of lady golfers,” said Mrs Baird.To order photos from this page click here
