The much anticipated 9th Annual KFC (Yum) Victorian Charity Golf Day was held on Wednesday 14th March at the Waterford Valley Golf Club, Knoxfield.
The golf day was attended by Yum head office management, KFC Franchisee owners and staff, Yum suppliers and various corporates with a strong interest in assisting the fundraising efforts of Whitelion.
Highlights from the event included the unusually warm weather, a competitive team spirit, and the unmistakable enthusiasm from each of the golfers to reach into their pockets and support each fundraising activity.
It was also fantastic to see our Co-Founders, Mark Watt and Glenn Manton at the dinner, a rare occurrence in their typically busy schedules. Glenn took the reins as MC for the dinner adding a distinct element of entertainment to the evening’s proceedings.
Winning this year’s event with a nett score of 56.125 was the ‘Retzos Group’ team, consisting of Chris Retzos, Tony Lowings, Simon Riordan and Craig Hosking – congratulations to all players.
KFC has been an integral contributor to Whitelion over the years, supporting disadvantaged young people with employment opportunities and helping to raise much needed funds. This event raised in excess of $23,000 through player registrations, donations and auctions – a fantastic effort from all those involved.
Congratulations and thank you to KFC (Yum) and all those involved on another very successful KFC (Yum) Victorian Charity Golf Day.
