They all generously supported the Bentley Sydney Celebrity Charity Golf Day held at Terrey Hills Golf and Country Club on 25 March 2004.
The event was a joint fundraiser for the Trish Foundation and the Roseville College Foundation and was supported by Dr. Brendan Nelson MP, Federal Minister for Education Science and Training.
“Bentley Sydney’s major sponsorship together with the generosity of Telstra Stadium and Toshiba and the support of so many celebrities who freely gave their time ensured the event was a great success. Approximately $50,000 was raised for these two worthy Foundations. This was our inaugural event and all participants want to come back next year,” said Chairman of the Joint Organising Committee Barry Bradford.
The funds raised, boosted enormously by the great auctioneering skills of Craig Marshall Century 21 Gordon, will add significantly to the Trish Foundation’s future research and will also enhance the education provided to Roseville College girls.
Brian McMillan, Managing Director, Bentley Sydney Five Dock said the event was a winner for all organisations involved. “I was most impressed by the support of the 25 celebrities such as Pat Rafter, John Newcombe, Fatty Vautin and Mark Taylor, who worked tirelessly and freely gave several hours of their time to entertain and play golf with their teams. It was wonderful to see such a big turnout in support of MS research, and that the players were not so much focussed on winning, but felt special just to be part of the day.”
“Overall it was a fantastic day – money man Paul Clitheroe as MC, the venue, the organisation, even the weather. Like the whole event, the Bentleys parked around the clubhouse were well received, some people expressing their pleasure at being able to sit in a Bentley for the first time. The auction dinner following the golf was a tremendous money raiser and it was great to see that the Bentley goods we donated assisted in the success of the auction.”
“The feedback received from our customers who played was all positive. Bentley Sydney is pleased to have been involved in an event which attracts such support from both celebrities and the community, and for such a good cause as MS Research. Also I was very happy with the unexpected gift of a NSW State of Origin jersey signed by the celebrities.”
