The Day - Monday November 27, 2017

The SGA Tour Charity Golf Day is an opportunity for The SGA Tour and our golfers to make a community contribution and support a worthwhile charitable cause that benefits the wider community. A portion of the ticket price and charity fundraising on the day goes to support the charity. Tour members get priority booking for the event and guests are welcome to come along to enjoy the fun of the day and contribute to a worthy charity.

The day features a single stableford competition with prizes and results on GOLF Link. We encourage all participants to register with Movember and we look forward to a fun and enjoyable day for a great cause. Below we see SGA MD and Mo Bro Matthew Pitt with Social Golf Australia Ambassador Andy Lee and SGA Tour Legend Neil Hocking who outbid all comers in the charity auction with Kerry Armstrong at the inaugural SGA Tour Charity Golf Day in 2012.

 

The Charity - Movember

Our chosen charity is The Movember Foundation, a global movement founded in Melbourne that raises awareness and funds to support equally the two biggest health issues men face – prostate cancer and depression. Movember’s goals are to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and their men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression initiative. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with their strategic goals of awareness and education, survivor-ship and research.

The Event Goals – Fundraising and Awareness-raising

The SGA Tour Charity Golf Day aims to raise funds and awareness for Movember.

Funds will be raised through:
• A portion of every event entry ticket goes to the charity.
• Corporate sponsorship of the event raises additional revenue.
• The golfers playing the event are encouraged to participate in Movember
• Fundraising activities will be held on the day - auctions, etc.

Awareness will be raised by:
• Media promotion and publicity for the event.
• By encouraging participating golfers to grow Mo's, we hope for a great photo opportunity.
• We are inviting celebrity participants to assist with media coverage and promotion.
