2010 Inaugural Golf Tournament
As the Foundation set about establishing a calendar of events, the inaugural golf tournament was played on the St Clair course in Dunedin. A field of 92 assembled for the event with the weather fine and the course in superb condition.
All 18 holes were sponsored, a number of prizes were donated and a profit for the day of just under $6000 was recorded.
