Friday May 18th last saw a large turnout at Galway Golf Club, Salthill for the Captain’s Charity Day in aid of Breast Cancer Research. The “Play in Pink” event saw over 120 golfers compete over the beautifully prepared 18 hole layout and the novel format of the “Champagne Pink Ball Scramble” certainly added to the enjoyment of all those present. The golf was followed by three course dinner in the club dining room, charity auction and prize giving. A total of €50,000 was raised on the day for Breast Cancer Research a national charity based at the Lambe Institute for Translational Research at NUI Galway.
Speaking at the event Club Captain, Phillip Duffy expressed his delight at the total of the funds raised on the day and thanked everyone who played their part in making the day such a huge success.
A big thanks to the support of the club members, team entrants and the very many generous sponsors including platinum sponsors Galway Golf Club, Burkeway Homes, Tom Dempsey Carpets and Flooring, Future Financial Services, The Front Door Pub and Glenlo Abbey Hotel.
