International insurance broker Gallagher Australia held their inaugural Golf Day at Sydney’s verdant Killara course, on a blistering 37°C October afternoon. Thanks to the efforts of long-time SpinalCure supporter Andrew Quartermaine, and with the generous backing of Gallagher CEO Andrew Godden, we were elated to be chosen as the beneficiary for the day.
After playing on through the afternoon heat, the stoic golfers retired to the cool of the club house for a well earned glass and a sumptuous dinner. Prizes were awarded and an auction of generously donated prizes held. SpinalCure’s Duncan Wallace gave a short after dinner talk thanking everyone and telling them of the important work their generosity is helping to support.
Later, on a visit to Gallagher’s North Sydney offices Duncan was presented with a cheque for the proceeds of the day—a tremendous $24,150 for SpinalCure’s research funding!
Our sincere thanks go Andrew Quartermaine and Andrew Godden for their support and to Peter Kelly and all at Gallagher’s for organising such a memorable and successful day.
