The Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter Golf Tournament, took place on Friday 29 April 2016 at the Hill Country Estate, Havelock North.
The event, which was rescheduled due to high winds and rain on the original date back in March, was a great success, with 20 teams from local businesses competing for the coveted Golf Tournament Trophy.
This year's winners were event newcomers First New Zealand Capital, with The Grizzlies in second place, and the Pakline team in third.
The evening auction raised over $3,500, and we'd like to thank the following organisations for donating prizes: Three Doors Up, Country Garden Florists, Ormlie Lodge, ANZ, Silky Oak Chocolate Factory, Bakers Delight, Ka Tahi Wines, Farmlands, and Hooters Vintage & Classive Vehicle Hire
Laura Hyde, Marketing and Fundraising Manager at the Trust said, "We were delighted with this years event, and want to thank everyone who took part. We have raised over $10k from the event which will go a long way to helping us keep our life saving services free of charge and available 24/7 to everyone in Hawke's Bay!"
"We'd also like to take this opportunity to also thank all of our volunteers who helped to make the day a success, Brian Doyle for co-ordinating the competition and, of course, Lowe Corporation, who sponsored the event"
