2017 Schepisi Communications Golf Day – Melbourne

The annual Schepisi Communications Charity Golf Day was held in Melbourne on 20th October, 2017. Huntingdale Golf Club, located in the heart of Melbourne’s world famous sandbelt region and one of Australia’s premier golf destinations, was the perfect venue for a day of golf and fundraising for our participating 70 players.

With event sponsorship, ticket sales, raffle, auctions, Distraction Box Sponsorship, and RAPID TLC pledges all considered, and amazing $31,060.95 was raised on the day for sick kids and their families. Since the first Schepisi Communications Golf Day took place in 2013, there have been nine charity golf days, which have raised a total of over $240,000 – amazing!

The event wouldn’t have been possible without the contributions of many committed people. Special thanks to Ben Giblett, Andrew Schepisi and Lisa Longaretti from Schepisi Communications, as well as the TLC for Kids Events Team, for dedicating themselves to the event, and to Huntingdale Golf Club for hosting us. We would also like to thank our MC Shura Taft and special guests – Matt Butcher and Dennis Armfield – for speaking on the day

Sponsorship is a vital part of the Schepisi Communications Charity Golf Days, and this year was no exception. We would like to wholeheartedly thank the following sponsors:
