Autumn charity golf day

A wrap up of The Kids’ Cancer Project annual autumn Golf Day sponsored by RAMS at St Michael’s Golf Club, NSW. 

On Wednesday 5 May 2021, The Kids’ Cancer Project held its annual autumn Golf Day at St Michael’s Golf Club in Sydney.

St Michael’s spectacular coastal views and warm hospitality of the club house welcomed 34 registered teams for the event. And although the weather only offered brief patches of sunshine, it was a fun day on the links raising vital funds for childhood cancer research.

Teams enjoyed on course activities such as longest drive, nearest the pin and putting green challenges.

In the comfort of the St Michael’s club house, players enjoyed a sit-down lunch with speeches from The Kids’ Cancer Project CEO, Owen Finegan, Paediatric Oncologist Dr Luciano Dalla-Pozza and a surprise virtual visit from Founder, Col Reynolds.

Representing the event’s major sponsor, Christian Johansson, Head of Marketing and Digital says, “RAMS has been a proud supporter of The Kids’ Cancer Project since 2018. During this time, it’s never been lost on us that many families every day are faced with the challenges cancer brings.”

“For this reason and due to our strong community focus, we find ourselves in the privileged position to be able to make a genuine impact on scientific discoveries for kids with cancer by partnering with an organisation like The Kids’ Cancer Project,” he says.  

Owen Finegan called the event a complete success, noting that many players enjoyed the view from the nineteenth hole well into the late afternoon.  

“I want to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors and everyone who attended for raising $48,000 for childhood cancer research,” says Owen.

“These funds will be invested in ground-breaking scientific discoveries to help the 950 Australian kids diagnosed with cancer every year,” he says.

Funds raised through The Kids’ Cancer Project Golf Day this autumn will go directly to ANZCHOG and access to international clinical trials for Australian kids.
