Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Mackay’s business community was at its charitable best last Friday, September 1 as the M&P Services and Key Solutions Group 8th Annual Charity Golf Day took over Mackay Golf Club.
The event was once again a sellout, with 36 teams taking to the fairway on a beautiful spring day, all for a good cause.
“Before we’d even teed off, we raised over $37,500 for 10 local charities,” said M&P Services General Manager Max Lamb.
The number of beneficiaries has doubled on previous years, with all money raised to go to RACQ CQ Rescue, Mackay Cutters Change the Game, Mackay Surf Lifesaving Club, Australian Street Aid Project, Mackay Netball Association, CASA, Mackay Hospital Foundation, Broken Ballerina Inc, Kidney Support Network and Mackay Community Visitors Association.
“This has become one of the most iconic charity golf days in our region and this is the eighth one, so congratulations to Max and his team,” said Mackay Regional Council Mayor Greg Williamson.
