The CLA Foundation recently held its 8th annual charity golf day on Friday October 26 at the Murray Bridge Golf Club.
With over 19 teams and 76 players participating, the event managed to raise close to $13,000 for the CLA Foundation.
Funds raised will be used to support children and adults with disability in the South Australian community through local not-for-profit community group Community Living Australia.
Des Warner, chairman of the CLA Foundation, said community Living Australia is a great organisation that provides quality services to people with disability and one that we are particularly proud to partner with and support.
“Together whilst enjoying a game of golf and lunch on a beautiful day we managed to raise a decent sum of money for people with disability in our community — if that is not a hole in one, I don’t know what is,” said Mr Warner.
Mark Kulinski, chief executive of Community Living Australia said the organisation was truly grateful for the ongoing support of the CLA Foundation and our local community in the important work we do to support people living with disability.
“The money raised will make a real difference in people’s lives and will help us to support them in increasing their independence, developing their skills and achieving their goals,” he said.
Mr. Warner thanked all involved for another successful golf day whilst also congratulating the winning team.
“I would like to sincerely thank the organisers, participants and sponsors who together helped to make the CLA Foundation Charity Golf Day a major success again in 2018,” Mr Warner said.
“We had many sponsors and we thank them all for their support but I would particularly like to recognise and thank Adelaide Mushrooms our major sponsor, as well as Nucleus Creative Agency and Thomas Foods our two gold level sponsors for their support of the event.”
Congratulations goes to the team from Thomas Foods who managed to take out first place on the day.’
