PDH Charity Golf Day Raises $20,500

Wednesday, 9 March 2016
Golfers and community supporters have helped to raise more than $20,000 for Portland District Health's planned Women's and Children's Health Precinct.

Former AFL star Robert `Dipper' DiPierdomenico was special guest at the PDH charity golf day and dinner on March 4 that attracted strong support from the community.

PDH community liaison Carolyn Malseed said it was a great event that raised $20,500.

We had a sold-out group of 104 golfers take part and then 120 people at the dinner, Ms Malseed said.

There was a wonderful feel to the day and we again received wonderful community support to make it a fund-raising success.

Ms Malseed said the Portland community had rallied behind the day.

We had great support from the community, including those who took part in the golf event, our sponsors and the golf club, she said. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed interacting with `Dipper'.

PDH CEO Chris Giles said the new precinct would be a dedicated area for the provision of women's and children’s healthcare.

PDH really appreciates the support of the community to make this annual golf day such a success, Ms Giles said.

Not only is a great activity, it helps to raise funds for important services and facilities for our community.

Ms Giles added that she would like to hear ideas from the community for future celebrity guests at the event.

The annual charity golf day has now raised $80,000 over the past four years.

Money raised at previous events has been used to purchase vital equipment for the emergency department and the redevelopment of various departments including palliative care and cancer units.
