Avid golfers are being urged to join an annual charity golf day to raise vital funds for PlusLife, Western Australia’s only bone and tissue bank.
The Rotary Club of Mill Point will hold their Rotary Charity Golf Day at the Royal Perth Golf Club in South Perth on Friday, May 12.
For the third consecutive year, PlusLife will receive 50 per cent of the money raised from the golf tournament. The remaining funds will be channelled into other local and international community projects run by the Rotary Club of Mill Point.
Through PlusLife, more than 560 West Australians were given the gift of improved mobility and wellbeing last year, thanks to the selfless donations of bone and tissue.
PlusLife provided an incredible 908 individual grafts to patients undergoing life-changing operations, such as surgery to treat spinal deformities, bone cancers, complex joint surgery and treatments of patients with dental and facial bone loss.
Rotary Club of Mill Point President Alison Thair said the club was proud to support such a worthy community organisation and the life-changing benefits PlusLife made to individuals.
“We are very happy to have such a wonderful organisation as the major beneficiary of our charity golf day,” Ms Thair said.
“PlusLife makes a very real difference to the lives of hundreds of West Australians every year, yet there is very little awareness of tissue donation or the amazing work they do.
“Our annual golf day is about raising that awareness and having fun along the way.”
PlusLife Managing Director Anne Cowie said money raised from the charity golf day would go towards equipping the new building in Midland, which is currently under construction.
“We are so grateful to be a beneficiary of this Rotary Club of Mill Point fundraiser,” Mrs Cowie said. “This generous financial support will supplement our life-changing work.
“Thousands of West Australians have been helped by PlusLife and bone and tissue donations in incredible, life-changing ways.”
PlusLife is the only bone and tissue bank in WA and has delivered services valued at more than $30 million to the community over the past 24 years – at no cost to the State. In addition to supplying grafts for local surgical procedures, it also provides bone and tissue for procedures around Australia.
Individual registrations for the Rotary Charity Golf Day are $220, which includes a pre-competition lunch, 18 holes of golf with on-course drinks, followed by canapés and beverages during presentations.
