At ASL’s annual golf day during April 2015 we raised $37,000 with all proceeds going to the charities of CUFA, Backtrack and SANDS.
CUFA operates with the goal of helping people lift themselves out of poverty in the Asia Pacific region.
Backtrack helps young people who have lost their way re-connect with their education and training, to become work ready, find jobs, lead happy and productive lives and participate fully in the community.
Sands provides support to all bereaved parents and families who have suffered the death of a baby anytime from conception through to 28 days after birth
On auction this year was a powersuit provided by Heritage Bank; A one of a kind framed jersey provided by world champion BMX and mountain bike rider Caroline Buchanan; A limited edition framed State of Origin jersey signed by Laurie Daley. A special thanks to CUFA who provided a guided tour of Myanmar, Burma as a key auction item.
Of course we couldn’t achieve such a great outcome without the strong support of our Members and suppliers for which we are truly grateful.
