Tournament Charity

One of the aims of the event is to raise money for a worthwhile charity organisation. The event we will also be supporting the Research into Dementia for Elderly Greeks conducted by Clinical Psychologist Dr Mathew Staios from Monash University. Dementia is prevalent not only throughout the Hellenic community but is also widespread across numerous cultures, following mass migration to Australia in the 1960s.

We encourage the participants to dig deep and donate towards the charity. All proceeds raised will go towards the Research into Dementia. The Golf day will provide all participants with the chance to win some great prizes as part of the scheduled Charity Hole in One, including a car for each lucky Hole in Ones achieved.

All proceeds will be donated to Dementia in elderly Greek migrants.
