Over 120 players braced the chilly weather to battle it out at the inaugural RACQ CapRescue Charity Golf Day, held across two weeks, Friday the 3rd and 10th of June at the Rockhampton Golf Club. RACQ CapRescue partnered with Triple M and major sponsor DC Motors, to host the very popular event.
CapRescue’s Media and Engagement Officer, Kim Moss said “We had such an overwhelming response to the event. Within 36 hours we had 24 businesses jump on board to support the event and our rescue service.”
With blue skies and sunny days, the players, organisers and volunteers couldn’t ask for better weather to tee off the first annual RACQ CapRescue Charity Golf Day.
“What a fantastic day for all the golfers! The sun was out, the skies were blue, and our team were ready to go in their golf outfits,” Eryn Mooney, Events Manager at DC Motors Rockhampton stated. “We love being apart of CapRescue, it’s a great organisation that needs any help they can get, and we were more than happy to be the major sponsor for this event.”
Players enjoyed some healthy competition, competing in a four player Ambrose event, aiming to lead their team to victory and ultimately get their business’ name on the shield. The teams were eager to claim the ultimate bragging rights and the scores were close, but there could only be one winner – congratulations to 62 Sports, for taking out the first RACQ CapRescue Charity Golf Day!
The event was an outstanding success raising over $20,000 for RACQ CapRescue.
“We are delighted with the amount raised from the charity golf day and extend a huge thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers and the Rockhampton Golf Club”, Triple M General Manager Matthew Wex stated.
“Southern Cross Austereo prides itself on supporting essential community services such as CapRescue.”
With the success of this year, RACQ CapRescue and a few eager players are already looking forward to teeing off again in 2023.
