On Course for Rosies – Friends on the Street for the Time to Share Golf Day
July 8, 2017 8:48 pm
What a brilliant day on the Golf Course was had by all. Middle of winter, sun shining and no breeze. Couldn’t ask for more!
144 players lined up to help raise over $30,000 for the Industry Foundation “Time to Share” of which $20,000 will go directly to Rosies – Friends on the Streets.
Laura Younger General Manager of The Australian Timeshare Council said “they are very proud to support Rosies. When we heard that more than 3,500 children under 12 were homeless, we felt that Rosies had very similar objectives to our foundation in helping support children in need.” Laura Younger said that the Golf Day is so popular that it is sold out within a month of the date being announced. With activities on every hole, it doesn’t really matter if you can play golf. It’s all about having fun and helping raise money for good causes.
Andrew O’Brien, General Manager of Rosies advised that “over 95% of the work done by Rosies is funded through donations from the community. We appreciate that we are a recipient of this years ATHOC Foundation Golf Day and will put the funds to great use.”
THE ATHOC Foundation has raised over $400,000 through this golf day and has been very proud to grant some fabulous things to many who need them.
There were activities on every hole to keep people busy and also have the opportunity to win a large amount of prizes that were on offer.
Congratulation to the winning company a supplier to the Industry Lifestyle Panel who get the honour of holding onto the trophy until we meet again next year.
Classic Holidays did well not only grabbing second place and scoring the frozen chooks for the team that came last. Did any one really care where they came? Possibly some, but the reality is everyone was out there to have a terrific time and raise money for some great causes.
Date will be out shortly for next year. Can’t wait to see you there.

Tonight, 20,000 Queenslanders are homeless. Nearly half are women.*
Over 40% are aged 25 or under. More than 3,500 of those are kids 12 or under.*
Rosies reaches out to those most in need, those people who are abandoned, marginalised, socially isolated within our communities.
