Golfers chip in to help raise money
ABOUT 300 golfers helped raise $25,000 at the annual Brown and Hurley charity golf tournament at Kyogle.
Participation numbers were up from last year with Kyogle golfer Dianne Betts finishing as the overall winner.
Golfers competed for a prize pool in excess of $12,000 and came from as far afield as Melbourne, Perth and Rockhampton.
"The event would not be possible without the enormous support we receive from our customers, suppliers and North Coast community,” event organiser Colleen Hurley said.
"We thank all the golfers and sponsors for the continued support which enables us to raise much needed funds for charities within our community.
"We've raised upwards of $375,000 to date in the events 43-year history.”
It is the third year that Kevin and his wife Colleen have run the event, taking over the reins from Jim Hurley who ran it since its inception.
Money raised this year went to Kyogle Lions Club, SES, Jodie's Inspiration, Rotary Rural Youth Leadership Program, Westpac Rescue Helicopter and the golf club.
