On Friday, 19th September 2014, 80 keen golfers came together to play at The Eikon Charity’s Annual Golf Day. There was most certainly a pre-Ryder Cup buzz in the air as some memorable shots were played on the beautiful course at West Byfleet Golf Club. The weather always seems to be kind to us on our Golf Day and this year was no exception.
The day was a phenomenal success and despite the relaxed nature of the event, there was some seriously good golf on display. Winners of the event were team “Ball of Fire” who impressed with both their long game and finesse around the greens. The other first prize (for the highest score…) went to the “DG Bandits”.
In the evening we held a live auction with several luxurious prizes on offer including a round of golf at both the prestigious Wisley Golf Club as well as the Wentworth West Course. There was also a silent auction on the night which helped to bring the total funds raised to in excess of £10,700!
We would like to say a massive thank you to West Byflyeet Golf Club, all the golfers who took part, our sponsor GSK, the live auctioneer and evening host Russ Williams (pictured below) as well as the numerous volunteers who helped behind the scenes and on the day to make the event such a success.
Every penny raised will help us make a difference to the vulnerable young people in Surrey whom we support.
