River’s Gift are proud to be hosting the River’s Gift Golf Day 2024 at The Sands, Torquay!

As a leading annual charity golf event in the Geelong region, the day provides an opportunity to enjoy the spoils of one of Australia’s top-rated golf courses and facilities on the beautiful Surf Coast. Following golf, a delicious buffet lunch and drinks package is provided in The Sands’ Shirley’s Bar and Restaurant, with music, guest speaker and fundraising activities keeping us well entertained into the afternoon. And plenty of incredible prizes will again be up for grabs!

We’re aiming to top this year’s incredible fundraising result, and raise at least $80,000 next year! We’d love for the Geelong, Melbourne and coastal business communities to get around our cause and be involved!
