Charity Golf Day 

The Charity Golf Day was held Friday, 13 May at Royal Perth Golf Club in partnership with the Rotary Club of Mill Point. We raised over $18,000 from the day which will be shared between the two organisations. We are very grateful that the Rotary Club named PlusLife as their major beneficiary once again. A BIG thank you to our sponsors and players who made the day possible.
 
Thank you to the following businesses and individuals - Terry Andrews (Auctioneer); Brad Logan (Club Pro); Bellisa Cafe; Kahlia Forbes Hair and Beauty: Spotlight; QBE; www.ausgolf.com.au; CMS Events; Da Vinci Ristorante; Angelo Street Optical.

Thank you to our golf day hole sponsors:

JOKE:
Why did the golfer wear two pairs of pants? .....  In case he got a hole in one.

Fletcher Steps Up

Scotch College student Fletcher Houston organised a charity walk to raise awareness for PlusLife. He was inspired by his childhood friend Harry O'Neill, who also volunteers a lot of his time to promote PlusLife and tissue donation. Harry was diagnosed with bone cancer at a young age and received a donor humerus from PlusLife, saving his arm from amputation.

On Sunday, 1 May at 8am Fletcher, Oliver Purton and Will Harkins set off in their bright orange t-shirts from Elizabeth Quay. After 20km, their journey ended at the Esplanade in Fremantle. Many others joined in a long the way, including Harry and his family.

Fletcher also raised over $1,400.00 for PlusLife. What an achievement, thank you Fletcher.


A big thank you to those that donated and supported Fletcher's walk.
