Our Emerald Golf Day was held on Saturday, despite strong winds and swirling dust which made for some tricky playing conditions.
This fun annual event has grown into a major fundraiser for our Emerald service centre, and we were delighted that this year we again received fantastic support from the Central Highland Community, with 37 teams comprising 103 golfers teeing off.
In total the event raised over $30,000 which will be used to employ an Allied Health Assistant in our Emerald centre to support kids and families in the local community.
Thanks to everyone for their support

As always we had wonderful support from the Central Highlands’ community, with 30 teams taking part on the day and incredible support from local businesses including Emerald Golf Club, Mitre 10, Enwise electrical, Central Highlands Toyota and Westpac.
Sadly no one got a hole-in-one on the 17th to win the car, but some competitors came very close to the pin. Better luck next year!
Special thanks go to Charlie Wilson and the Friends of BUSHkids (FoBK) team in Emerald for organising the event and giving their time to make the day such a success.

Early Childhood Early Intervention is a new program fully funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme and is designed to help children aged zero to six years with a disability or developmental delay to access the support and services they need to achieve better long-term outcomes.
BUSHkids chief executive officer Carlton Meyn said through the program the organisation was hoping to help more local children through its new team of early childhood professionals.
