Second annual Lloyd’s Australia Golf Day a swinging success

A great day was enjoyed by the capacity crowd at the 2nd annual Lloyd’s Golf Day in support of SpinalCure. The day kicked off with a putting competition and featured another narrow miss on the $20,000 hole-in-one prize, generously contributed by event sponsor Beazley.

A morning on the greens at Avondale was wrapped up with a fabulous lunch in the club-house followed by prize presentations (with the team from Guy Carpenter victorious on the day), an auction and raffle prize draw.

Proceeds from the event have generously been donated to SpinalCure to fund vital medical research into curing paralysis. Having launched Project Edge this year, much of this funding will be directed to helping establish this cutting-edge research initiative at the Centre for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine at UTS.

SpinalCure is honoured to be the standing beneficiary of the event and is very grateful to our partners at Lloyd’s, along with major sponsors XL Catlin, SURA, Steadfast Underwriting Agencies, Beazley, JLT Re and Argenta.

We would also like to thank the many generous prize donors including Blackmores, Marcus and Caroline Blackmore, Pacific Boating & NM Insurance, Gai Waterhouse Racing, The Charity Challenge, Chris & Tina Mackinnon, North Lodge Cottages, Channel 10’s Sandra Sully, Gilchrist Connell, JB Hi-Fi, Suzie White, Beazley, SURA, and Glamazon. As well as many thanks to Matt Laverty, Smokey Dawson and their team for putting on such a fantastic day.

Finally, a big Thank you to Avondale Golf Club for hosting the event and for their generous and spontaneous donation of two rounds of golf on their award-winning course!
