Annual SSMRF Charity Golf Day hits a hole in one!

Annual SSMRF Charity Golf Day 2023

St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation (SSMRF) raised over $40,000 for medical research at St George & Sutherland Hospitals at its annual Charity Golf Day on Thursday 18 May at The Australian Golf Club.

SSMRF CEO Pam Brown said, “the event was a huge success thanks to the generous sponsors, donors, speakers and guests, and of course, our skillful golfers who braved a chilly start to play a round of golf to raise money for medical research.

Club Central and St George Leagues Club supported the event, and we really appreciate their continued support.

Thank you to The Australian Golf Club for ensuring that everyone enjoyed the day – and the sun came out!”

2022 SSMRF medical research grant recipient Dr Brendan Smyth spoke about his research into the symptom management of chronic kidney disease using Cannabidiol, and SSMRF Board Member Kate Moore shared information about ways to support the Foundation, including the new SSMRF Gift in Will program launched this year.

“Congratulations to our winners and thank you to Paul Roser from American Golf Supplies for donating the prizes for the first-place team and the runners up,” said Pam.

First place: WedGroup team – Warrick Oates, Bradd McCann, Matthew Sear and Patrick Keating. Prizes presented by Club Central President Brian Cloney.

Runners up: Colin Daley Quinn team – Gary Miller, Michael Cross, Timothy Daley and Peter Ambrose. Prizes presented by St George Leagues Club Chairman Ralph Piggott.
