Huge Numbers For First Forbes CDS Golf Day: The inaugural Forbes Currajong Disability Services Charity Golf Day was held last Sunday at the Forbes Golf Club. The event, which was a fundraiser for Currajong Disability Services (CDS), was a three-person Ambrose team competition and attracted entries from Parkes, Forbes and Condobolin. In total there were 66 players. “We were absolutely floored with the interest and turn out for the event,” said CDS Communications and Marketing Manager, Dane Millerd. “We held a BBQ, lucky door raffles and trivia on the day as well. There was also a silent auction for some blue chip items,” said Dane. “In total there were 21 sponsors and 13 major prize events with final fundraising numbers still being counted. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters. We couldn’t have a day like this without them!” said Dane. “The difference all our sponsors, staff, volunteers and contributors have made is immeasurable and it cannot be stated enough how much we appreciate all that has been done,” he added.
