Club Catalina tees off for a cancer free future
Club Catalina agrees to waive club fees for a day in support of Cancer Council NSW
Local golfers at Club Catalina will take to the green to tee off for Cancer Council NSW’s The
Longest Day on Monday 14 December.
Participants are challenged to play four rounds of golf in one day at their own club with their
friends and fellow members to raise funds for Cancer Council NSW.
Cancer Council NSW’s, Sari Boschiero said while The Longest Day is an endurance
challenge that tests skill and stamina, it is easy to get involved – and a whole lot of fun.
“It challenges participants to successfully complete all four rounds of golf during daylight
hours – a challenge that many keen golfers are eager to conquer!
“The Longest Day sounded like a real challenge, so we got our club on board. It’s going to
be a great day and we encourage any other keen golfers to sign up for what will be a fun
day” said Club Catalina General Manager, Guy Chapman.
Ms Boschiero said, “Participants will be making a difference by raising funds to support
Cancer Council’s life-saving cancer research, prevention programs, and information
and local support services, such transports to treatment that has transported 41 Eurobodalla community members for free to their cancer treatment with 357 trips in the last 12 months.
In NSW alone, it is estimated that approximately 5,116 people will be diagnosed with
Melanoma skin cancer, with around 11 deaths per week in 2020.
Sari Boschiero thanked Club Catalina for getting involved in The Longest Day.
“We rely on the generosity of the Eurobodalla community to work towards our vision of a
cancer free future. It is the support of organisations like Club Catalina that allows us to
continue our work,” said Sari Boschiero.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing how Club Catalina will perform in The Longest Day
challenge. We also encourage the team and all golfers to keep sun-safe and slip, slop, slap,
seek and slide, not only on The Longest Day, but each and every day.”
