The Charity Golf Day, a joint venture between the Rotary clubs of Attadale and Fremantle, gave locals the chance to enjoy a round of golf while raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA as well as medical research at Fremantle Hospital.
Event organiser and Rotary Club of Attadale’s Rod Rate said they aimed to raise $40,000 in honour of his close friend Frank Pyke, who died from MND in 2011.
“The trophy we play for each year is named in honour of Frank, and through our continued fundraising for the MND Association of WA we are committed to helping other people in WA who are dealing with MND,” he said.
MNDAWA chief executive Maeve Egan said the support of the charity day over the last five years had been invaluable.
“As a not-for-profit organisation we rely on the support and generosity of community fundraisers such as this,” she said.
