Golf with fun and prizes

GOLFERS across the FNC can get their hands on sought-after prizes and help raise vital funds.

Auction items including signed sporting memorabilia and good competition will be featured at Casino Golf Club's Parkinson's Disease Charity Day.

Funds from this Sunday's event will be donated to the University of Queensland's research into the disease, which can prove fatal for those affected.

All participants are welcome to the event, which will feature an 18-hole single stableford competition.

Non-players can also enjoy a social secret handicap event.

Trophies will be available for participants.

Businesses and the Casino community are supporting the day , with several prizes donated for raffles.

The day will also feature an auction of signed sporting goods, with jerseys and other rare items on offer.

St Patrick's Day-themed entertainment will also take place after the golf, which starts at 10am.

The university's Centre of Clinical research is currently studying the degenerative disease, which affects the control of body movements.

Anyone wanting to play the event should contact the West St club on 6662 4047.

For more information or to donate, contact O'Neill on 0411 603 568.
