Twelve of our Apollo Bay women golfers took part in the Tee Off for Cancer Charity day. The players all wore something pink, and had fun on the course by recording their minor misdemeanours, and badly hit golf shots, which incurred small fines. The women were able to donate $227 by giving the entire proceeds of their golf day to the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia. The amount included competition entry fees, donations, raffle proceeds, and the above minor fines. Bright pink flags, kindly made by Sue McKenzie, adorned the flagsticks. The pink flags will be used for the rest of the month of October as a reminder of the cancer risk and the need for more research to be done into this disease.
