The Kids Rehab Golf Day was created by Paul Bardetta, CEO of MARKi, in 'Memory of Liam O'Flaherty' in 2010. It is an annual event that raises much needed funds for Kids Rehab at The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
MARKi is an important client and good friend of Andrew’s and he has attended the event for the past 3 years. At Laurentide we support important causes and those of our clients.
Funds raised from the Golf Day go towards the 'Liam O'Flaherty Fellowship Trust Fund' which has been setup to assist Kids Rehab Clinicians including Nurses and Therapists gain further training in the area of Paediatric Disabilities. The care of children with physical disabilities is continually changing and requires staff to be trained and skilled in a range of treatments and therapies. Money raised at the Golf Day is directly used in the ongoing education of Kids Rehab staff that may not otherwise have the opportunity to further their knowledge.
The 2017 KRGD was a huge success on all levels. There was huge turnout of players on the day; with an enjoyable day of golf in picture perfect weather plus an equally enjoyable post golf lunch. Most importantly $30K was raised for the Liam O’Flaherty Fellowship Trust.
Organisation for the 2018 KRGD has already commenced and we wish them the best of luck.
