THE annual Elders South Gippsland Charity Golf Day will be held on Friday, July 26.
This year Elders will be supporting three local families who are each going through some challenging and heartbreaking times.
The first family is the Ion family from Wonthaggi who have suffered a devastating loss of their 16-year-old son Campbell from a tragic car accident which their 18-year-old son Lucas was also involved in, and Lucas is facing a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him.
The second local family is the Dubignons, whose precious five-year-old daughter Montanah has an incurable brain tumour called a Glioma.
And the third family are the Fishers from Leongatha whose 17-year-old son had been in remission for the last 10 years, and has now been given the devastating news that it has returned and he has a stage four brain tumour.
These three families are going through tough and unthinkable times and organisers would like to help them out a little bit financially, so they have one less thing to worry about.
They are looking for sponsors, so if you would be generous enough to donate money or prizes for the raffles/auction, please contact Elders.
Last year, a massive $33,000 was raised. Over the last six years of running this event, $100,000 has been raised.
Elders look forward to great success again this year and to providing help and support to these local South Gippsland families, during this difficult time.
Everyone at Elders South Gippsland branches would like to thank everybody for their support.
Please contact Elders at Korumburra 5658 1894 or Leongatha 5662 3523, with any questions.
