Adding to the entertainment and activities at Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort’s recent Family Food Fair was a Hole in One competition.

At $1 per ball entry there were plenty of people who tried to claim one of golf’s impressive shots although it was only over 100m.
All the money raised from the competition has been donated to the three groups who assisted running the completion in Mulwala Public School, Yarrawonga P-12 College and Helping Hands (Yarrawonga Health).  
All three groups received a cheque for $600 to go toward their chosen projects.
Mulwala Public School will be utilizing their contribution toward their Reading by the Lake program.  The program encourages reading at home and each student will receive an allocation to purchase their own books.     
Yarrawonga P-12 have teams participating in this year’s RACV Energy Breakthrough at Maryborough in November and their funds have been welcomed in their endeavour to purchase new equipment for the challenge.   
Helping Hands is the fundraising committee of Yarrawonga Health who work tirelessly to raise critical funds for much needed equipment.  
They are presently undertaking an upgrade of 100 hospital beds.  
“It is very pleasing to know that our contribution has been well received and provides significant assistance to these organisations.” Gil Cunningham President YMGCR said.
“It is very gratifying to know that funds donated are put to such worthwhile projects and we look forward to a bigger and better result at our next food fair”.
