7th Lisa Wilson Golf Day raises over £7500

The 7th Lisa Wilson Golf Day took place on Saturday and, despite the dismal weather, there was a fantastic turn out of over 130 member and four dozen guests to play in the golf competitions.
The prizes were presented to the winners by former Saints legend, John Sydenham, who was over in Southampton on a visit from Australia where he now resides.
Just under 250 people turned up for the evening event to see John present prizes and star cabaret from comedian Mr Mike Osman, which was followed by two great sets from Abba Revival which had the dance floor heaving.
A raffle took place which raised just under £1,000 and the silent auction for sports memorabilia raised a further £450.
The event was a fantastic success with provisional profits for the evening at being over £7,500 which is by far the best total to the Wellow Golf Day.

Many thanks to all concerned, we look forward to seeing you next year when the date has been set for August 21st.

The 6th Lisa Wilson Golf Day raises in excess of £7000

On Saturday 2nd August 2008 the 6th Lisa Wilson Golf Day took place at Wellow Golf Club where Lisa worked and played before her tragic accident. Over 120 members played in the member’s competition which was open to men, ladies and juniors. We also had a record number of guest entries; an amazing 48 people turned out to play in the Guests’ and Sponsors’ competition.

Although the weather was miserable to start with, it brightened up towards lunch time and during the afternoon became quite hot with some very sunny patches. The course was in exceptional condition and looking at the points score, the golf was exceedingly good.

The prizes were presented by former Grand National winner and race horse trainer, Brendan Powell. Brendan spoke about the race horse named after Lisa, Lisathedaddy, and told a few anecdotes about his career.

Nearly 100 guests and sponsors sat down to dinner whilst the members enjoyed a barbecue. Close on 200 people were in the club-house for the prize giving, which was followed by a star cabaret from the legendary Drifters. They gave a truly outstanding performance, singing over 25 songs including many of the Drifters hits, and many other motown classics. The dance floor was absolutely heaving.

Many thanks to everyone who supported the event, it truly was a fabulous day.

Photographs from the evening will soon be available for download and printing. Please check back later.
