Ingham Institute Charity Golf Day
Friday 18 March - Enjoy a great day of golf whilst raising money for cancer research.
The Ingham Institute Charity Annual Golf day is held in memoriam of former CEO Michael Skegg who unfortunately lost his battle with bowel cancer in 2012. This event has now been held in conjunction with the Green Industries Group and Ingham Institute as the beneficiary for three consecutive years & a generous $30k has been raised.
In 2016 the focus will again be on Prostate Cancer so our dedicated researchers can continue to find better ways to treat health conditions affecting South West Sydney and beyond.
Prostate Cancer is the fourth highest cause of death in Australian men, behind heart disease, lung cancer, and stroke. It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Through research survival rates for over 5 years are now 93%.
Associate Professor Kieran Scott from the Ingham Institute comments:
â€œWithout the ongoing support of the community our research would not have continued. The ultimate goal of re-search is to obtain better treatment to diagnose life threatening diseases earlierâ€.
The organising committee who has members from NGINA, LNA and the Institute are in full swing organising the 2016 event to be held on Friday, March 18th 2016 at Camden Valley Lakeside Resort. We are planning for even more surprises this year to keep the competition fierce.
Player registration is only $125 and includes Green Fees, Snacks and limited beverages on course and a Gourmet seafood buffet lunch.
Hole Sponsorship Package includes: 4 player registrations plus, your company banner on one of the 18 holes, acknowledgement in Power Point presentation at Lunch concluding the event and materials surrounding the event as well as a tax receipt provided for your company donation component.
Golf Day Backs Cancer Research with a Smile
If there was one word to describe this year's charity golf day, it was fun. From the moment golfers arrived there were smiles all round which continued throughout the day. A warm sunny day always helps, but it's hard to beat a friendly welcome from NGINA and Ingham Institute staff, a hospitable greeting from Stonecutter's Ridge Golf Club staff and a well organised venue.
