Drakes Charity Golf Day raises over $75K for charity

Drakes Supermarkets held its annual charity Golf Day on 10 May 2024 at Carbrook Golf Club in Queensland, marking the 11th year of this fundraiser.

Over 150 golfers took to the greens for this cause, raising an impressive $75,618 in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland (RMHC SEQ).

The event brought together suppliers and Drakes employees for a day filled with friendly competition and generosity.

Every drive and putt served a greater purpose, to raise much needed funds and awareness for RMHC SEQ, which provides vital support for families navigating the challenges of their child’s medical journey.

Participants enjoyed various games throughout the day, with prizes awarded for nearest to the pin, longest drive and straightest drive. The competition also included first, second and third place awards, along with a range of lucky door prizes.

“The Drakes charity Golf Day is one of our most anticipated fundraising events. Thanks to this longstanding partnership, Drakes has been able to fund over 2500 nights of accommodation for families with ill or injured children. We are so grateful for Drakes’ ongoing support and unwavering commitment to the charity. We are already looking forward to next year’s event”, says Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland CEO Emma Thompson.

“The Drakes team are very proud of this event and what has been built over many years to support the families who need RMHC SEQ, we could not make this happen without the outstanding support of our supply and service providers, so to them it is a heartfelt thank you”, says Drakes Queensland State Manager Mark Meszaros.

Since the inception of Drakes charity Golf Day in 2013, Drakes has raised more than $500,000.
