Teeing off for medical research & patient care

Keen golfers enjoyed a great day out for the charity golf event.

Nearly 100 keen golfers and guests grabbed their clubs and hit the green for a charity golf day, aimed at raising funds to support medical research and patient care at Westmead.

The charity golf day, organised by Arab Bank Australia to support the work of Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF), raised more than $24,000 for vital services at Westmead Hospital and the Westmead Institute of Medical Research.

This year, 20 teams registered and played on the day.

Arab Bank Australia CEO and managing director Joe Rizk said all the golfers enjoyed a glorious day at the Twin Creeks Country and Golf Club.

“It was great to see so many golfers supporting such a great cause,” he said.

“A special mention and thanks to our co-sponsor Construction Consultants, our shirt sponsor BP Australia and our event sponsor Billbergia.

“I want to recognise all our hole sponsors and donors, and the players – the day wouldn’t have been such a success without your friendship, support and giving nature – a great overall result.”

WMRF provides support across all aspects of the Westmead precinct through its fundraising and awareness initiatives to support the dedicated staff and patients who visit Westmead.

The foundation has funded state-of the-art medical equipment, life-saving research and enhanced patient services for Westmead Hospital and The Westmead Institute for Medical Research.

“All of this would not be possible without the generous contributions we receive from donors like Arab Bank Australia and its corporate partners – a dedicated group who supports this fantastic fundraising event,” said WMRF development head Joe Conneely.
