Youth Solutions 2019 Annual Charity Golf Day

The 2019 Youth Solutions Golf Day has been declared a hit, with golfers taking aim to raise $5,029 to support the region’s young people.

Held on 29 March 2019, the annual event saw seasoned and amateur golfers take to the green for a day of fun and fundraising to support Macarthur and Wingecarribee youth charity, Youth Solutions.

Winning team, MayTek IT Solutions, collect their prizes.

Youth Solutions Chief Executive Officer Geraldine Dean said the $5,029 raised from the event would greatly assist the charity with the delivery of its important health promotion and drug and alcohol education programs and campaigns with young people.

“I’d like to thank everyone who sponsored, attended or supported our 2019 Youth Solutions Golf Day,” Mrs Dean said.

“Not only is this event a social highlight on the Youth Solutions calendar, but it also helps us to raise funds necessary for our service to continue its important work with young people in our community.

“Youth Solutions works really hard delivering drug and alcohol prevention and health promotion programs with the aim of improving the health, wellbeing and resilience of young people and we simply cannot work towards this goal without the incredible support we receive from the community through events like our Golf Day.”
