On Friday 19 September the Woollahra Golf Club hosted its annual charity golf day with proceeds going to Shake It Up.
The whole event was a perfect example of how a group of united and passionate people can make a huge difference in the quest for a cure for Parkinson’s. This group was inspired by Club Member, Lew Carter, who has Parkinson’s and wanted to make a difference. Through the support of the club, his wife Gloria and the ladies committee they pulled together a day that was nothing short of brilliant.
A full contingent of players hit the course early on what was a beautiful spring morning in Sydney. Throughout the day there was competition for the best dressed team and players had the opportunity to take advantage of a refreshing drink at the Pimms for Parkinson’s hole.
Following the round, much fun was had back in the clubhouse where guests were entertained by Kevin Joyce while being treated to a fabulous lunch. Shake It Up founder, Clyde Campbell shared his Parkinson’s journey and guests had the opportunity to bid on a range of donated auction items.
Shake It Up CEO, Ben Young was extremely grateful for the club’s efforts in making the day such a success.
Ben said, ‘Woollahra Golf Club has truly made a difference in our quest for a cure and on behalf of the 30 Aussies diagnosed with Parkinson’s every day I say a heartfelt thank you. In particular, we would like to thank Lew, Gloria and the committee for their passion and expertise which resulted in the most successful event in our Foundation’s history.’
