Papamoa Rotary Club’s annual golf tournament has raised $24,000 toward youth development in the region. The event, which took place at Mt Maunganui Golf Club last month, is now in its eighth year and has so far raised over $100,000 since its inception.
Previous funds have been used to provide bike racks, helmets, playground equipment, and funding towards Papamoa Surf Club including a boat, 4WD quad and club programs.
This year’s funds will be focused on youth development. Of the $24,000 raised, three cheques of $5,000 will go to main beneficiaries: The Graeme Dingle Foundation, RYDA Road Safety Education, and Papamoa Surf Club.
Dan Allen Gordon, accepting the cheque for The Graeme Dingle Foundation’s Kiwi Can team, advises that this contribution will benefit a further 720 children in Papamoa this year through their programs.
