River’s Gift Golf Day at The Sands, Torquay, sponsored by Southern Star Group of Companies raises an incredible $70,155!

On Friday 24th March, as the sun rose, 21 teams consisting of 84 golfers joined us for the 8th River’s Gift Golf Day, sponsored by Southern Star Group of Companies. It was a day filled with laughter, great (and not so great 😉) shots, networking, and reflection on what River’s Gift is all about.

Our guest speaker, Cameron Schwab captivated the room for an hour, sharing his highs and lows about what having purpose, and application, is really all about.

River’s Gift currently relies solely on corporate and community support to fund research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), whilst also providing education and support to families.
