With October being breast cancer awareness month, a charity golf day to be known as the Joanne Mackay Pink Ribbon Golf Challenge is being staged on the 26th September 2003 at Bankstown Golf Club. Proceeds from the day will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Joanne Mackay Helping Hand Foundation which will go into research and awareness programs.
The Joanne Mackay Helping Hand Foundation has been setup in memory of Joanne Mackay who was the wife of former Australian, NSW and St George Illawarra rugby league star Brad Mackay. Joanne passed away from breast cancer in July 2002.
The golf challenge has been well supported from the rugby league fraternity with the National Rugby League (NRL) and St George Leagues Club sponsoring the day. There will be a number of former Australian and State of Origin legends that will be playing in the event.
Tickets for the golf challenge are $190 each or $760 for a grouping of four. Cost includes green fees, breakfast, lunch and after golf catering, drinks, giveaways and prizes.
