Back on the Green after COVID-19 – Annual Charity Golf Day 2021
The Mornington Peninsula delivered a picture-perfect Autumn morning for our Adroit/LTF annual Charity Golf Day on Friday 30th April.
We were delighted to ‘tee-off’ our Annual Golf Day, our first event since the COVID-19 pandemic. The sun beamed down on 112 players at the stunning Moonah Links Resort, in Fingal, as our early risers fuelled up on a quick breakfast before taking on the 18-hole championship golf course.
Our golfers then set aside their friendly rivalries to network and indulge in a gourmet BBQ lunch whilst learning more about our foundation and the program they were there to support.
So far we have raised an incredible $17,500 for our Back to School Program, providing students experiencing financial hardship and unstable living conditions with educational resources needed for the school year.
Harrison Thorpe and Lochie MC from the music group ‘Creds’ gifted guests with a live performance of their recently recorded song ‘Tough’ dedicated to the works of our Founder Les Twentyman before we presented prizes to our winners of the day.
A combined team of Daniel O’Leary and Matt Hill from Adroit Geelong, and Kate Stebbings and Ben Church from Allianz were our runners up for the day. CGU Insurance’s dream team of Peter Dean, Steven Todes, Ryan James and Ross Johansen impressed us with their skills taking home the title and bragging rights as this year’s winners. Incredibly, Ryan James (CGU) also took home the trophies for ‘Longest Drive’ and ‘Nearest to Pin’.
We were honoured to have the support of several special guests on the day including Australian TV Personality – Sam Newman, Olympic Skier and former Victorian MP- Kirstie Marshall, Detective Superintendent- Pat Boyle, Olympian and 4-Time World Champion – Sue Stanley and Chair of the Les Twentmyan Foundation and renowned surgeon, Dr David Young.
Lastly, we would like to sincerely thank Adroit Insurance and Risk for funding the day, your invaluable support and hard work towards making the day such a success is so greatly appreciated. Special thanks to Fabian Pasquini for MCing the event and the fabulous team at Adroit for helping out on the day.
On behalf of our CEO Renee Hancock, Founder Les Twentyman, and all staff and families of LTF, we would like to thank everyone who supported our event and look forward to seeing you all back on the green next year.
