MARK ADAMS REAL ESTATE SKI & GOLF DAY
ANNUAL SKI & GOLF FUNDRAISING DAY
The Mark Adams Real Estate Company was again the proud sponsor of the 2017 Ski & Golf Event which was successfully held on Friday 4th July at Mt Buller and the Mansfield Golf Course.
Mark Adams Real Estate has been the major naming rights sponsor for the last 8 years.
We would like to thank all the other sponsors for there worthy donations.
The Annual Event which has been held for 17 years helps raise money for local Mansfield Schools children’s skiing and snowboarding programs.
In 2017 a total of $26,000 was raised for local schools snowsports programs that enabled many children to participate in snowsports for the very first time.
This fun event allows teams of 4 people to enjoy the sporting attributes of skiing at Buller & playing golf in Mansfield whilst helping to raise money for this worthy cause.
The action starts on Buller with each team Member having 2 runs on Bourke St race-course. Consistency rather than speed is the objective and teams are rewarded for having the smallest time differential that is the closest rather than the fastest times.
Following skiing, the teams make their way to Mansfield Golf Course (courtesy the MMBL) for a barbeque lunch followed by a 4 person Ambrose event.
After the golf event finishes, presentations occur at the golf club and a vast array of fantastic prizes are given out to the 8 different category winners. These prizes have been donated by the 38 secondary sponsors who also make this event possible.
Those wishing to enter the next event need to complete an entry form which is advertised on the Mt Buller website in June each year.
