The Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay celebrated a milestone on March 11 when it was again host for the 26th year of its charity event at Pakuranga Golf Club.

Stephen Glading, who’s part of the Charity Golf Organising Team, has assisted with most of the events.

“The 26 years has gone very quickly, and we have had so much fun organising and executing them year after year it has become like a well-oiled machine,” he says.

“We are now back to pre-Covid events attracting 38 teams.”

The Annual Charity Ambrose Golf Day has been supported by two principal sponsors Continental Cars Audi and AA Business Solutions for over 10 years.

All holes were also sponsored and by many local businesses such as Airey, Foodtech, RSM and Team Raos, again for over 10 years.

This year’s principal beneficiary is the Rising Foundation who have been working alongside the Rotary Club to assist with the organisation of the event.

“Over the years many local charities have benefitted from the generosity of the attendees and sponsors of the Golf Day and that is one of the reasons we continue to host it,” added Stephen.

The Rising Foundation was founded in 2009 and operates a five-to-seven-year voluntary programme to assist young people in high school and beyond.

These young people are supported until they are successful in tertiary education or employment.
