Thursday August 29th saw the Lions Club of Katikati join forces with Waihi Golf Club to hold their annual Daffodil Day Golf Tournament. Fortunately the weather was kind to us, as the tournament had been held over due to heavy rain the previous week.
The men’s committee ran the golf for the day and Katikati Lions ran the raffle and sausage sizzle. The raffle prizes were kindly donated by Katikati Lions Club members, a special mention must go to Heather Groves who generously gave us a beautiful, queen sized patchwork quilt. This year Lions also had an unusual wooden putter, which we auctioned after the golf.
Thank you to the 77 golfers in the field who generously supported our raffles and enjoyed the tasty sausages for sale on the 8th tee. The combined efforts of Waihi Golf Club and Katikati Lions Club made it a very successful day, which raised $1578.10. This amount was topped up by Katikati Lions to give $2000 for the Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day appeal.
