The club would like to thank those who donated prizes for the raffle: Brian Wastenage—red wine, Mari Earthy—neck cooler, Colleen Buckley—club shirt and the VLB Club—beer/white wine,  as well as all those who helped run the tournament.

It couldn’t have been a more spectacular day to be out on the green in support of a Society which provides compassionate care for so many.
