A golf fundraiser has raised enough money to send 10 teenagers on a Spirit of New Zealand adventure.
The event, on March 15, was jointly organised by Harcourts real estate agent Karen Franklin and Gulf Harbour Country Club (HM February 13).
Karen says it was a fantastic day. “The Spirit of New Zealand was anchored off the 16th hole with the crew doing a beach clean up – it looked awesome,” she says.
Nearly 100 golfers took part, raising a total of $34,500, which is enough for 10 fully paid voyages.
The voyages provide young people with challenges, fun and opportunities to learn about things such as environmental sustainability, diversity and equity.
Karen says the Charity Golf Classic was such a success that people are already wanting to sign up for next year.
