14 businesses across the Murwillumbah region showed their support for the Wollumbin Family Support Inc by participating in ETC’s Charity Golf Day on Friday 13 March at the local golf club.
A generous $2310 was raised for the service which supports domestic violence victims in the local community.
ETC Business Relationship Manager Alec Betham said he was proud of the local community’s response to the fundraising event.
“The support we’ve had from the local businesses has been great – they are very community minded. The money raised came from a collection of sponsorship dollars and items raffled off to golfers on the day. There were even some businesses who couldn’t attend, but still wanted to support the cause,” Mr Betham said.
“One of the raffle prizes was won by a volunteer and was donated to the charity for a silent auction. This auction currently sits at $1000 dollars which will increase the current total of $2310 at the completion of the auction.”
Wollumbin Family Support President Ilze Jaunberzins thanked ETC and the local community for their generosity.
“My heart is so full. It was a tremendous event of goodwill and support to the mission of Wollumbin Family Support. The money raised will pay for another term of the Love Bites Program at Murwillumbah High School – which is an extremely successful school based domestic and family violence, sexual assault and consent awareness education program,” Ms Jaunberzins said.
ETC would like to thank and acknowledge all businesses who sponsored golf holes for the day and contributed items for raffles at the ETC Charity Golf Day:
