The annual Mayor’s Golf Day last month raised $30,000 for the five St Vincent De Paul Society parishes in the Canada Bay region.

Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said the day was a great success with more than 140 golfers turning up to play 18 holes on a spectacular day at Massey Park Golf Course, Concord.

“The $30,000 raised from this year’s Golf Day will go a long way to helping the St Vincent De Paul Society in their work to assist local people in need.”

Mayor Tsirekas commended the community for all efforts and time dedicated to raising money for those in need and less fortunate.

“Over the past seven years, more than $150,000 has been raised directly for the community,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

“This is an outstanding effort by all involved and I congratulate and thank everyone who took part.

Winning the Mayor’s Golf Day was the Communities for Communities team, with Regatta Motor Body Repairs coming in as runners up.

Sponsors of the day were Recoveries and Reconstruction, Cleanaway, Briars at Greenlees, Fuji Xerox, Truscott Toyota, Regatta Motor Body Repairs, Canada Bay Club, Massey Park Golf Club and The Palace Hotel.

Please note that the City of Canada Bay will also be collecting for St Vincent De Paul during the Christmas period, through its Christmas Giving Trees, which will be placed in the City of Canada Bay Administration Centre and Council’s libraries.
