New look for 2024 charity golf day

This year’s Bendigo Community Bank’s Annual Charity Golf Day has a new-look.

Traditionally an early morning tee off, the ‘new look’ event will see teams tee off at 12.30pm on Friday 23 February followed by a two-course dinner, golf presentations, major auction, community raffle draw and a special performance by local musician Luke Matthews upon arrival to the Warragul Country Cub.

Luke Matthews has been performing as a musician around Australia and internationally for the past 20 years and has had gigs at the Australian Open, AFL and backstage pre-shows for Prince, The Beach Boys, Coldplay, Cold Chisel and The Eagles.

This charity golf day is in its ninth year and is organised through a partnership between Bendigo Community Bank branches of Drouin, Neerim and Trafalgar and the Warragul Country Club – the official event host and supporting event partner.

The annual charity event raises money for West Gippsland Hospital Supporters and Warragul and District Specialist School.

West Gippsland Hospital is purchasing new stretcher trolleys for the Emergency Department thanks to the donation they received from last year’s Bendigo Community Bank’s Annual Charity Golf Day while Warragul and District Specialist School put their funds towards the purchase of communication devices for the school.
