Skipton Golf Club Special Golf Event

The inaugural Col Sharpe (1935-2019) Memorial four person mixed Ambrose event (any combination) will be played at the Skipton Golf Club on Monday 10 June 2019.

Traditionally the Open Golf Tournament the 2019 event will be altered slightly with the event being held in honour of Mr Colin Sharpe was a much loved character of the Skipton Golf & Bowls Club who sadly passed away recently after his own battle with his health.

Having just completed fifty (50) years as a Club member, Committee and Members of Skipton Golf & Bowls Club wanted to organise a special event in Col’s memory and to celebrate his remarkable life here in the Mannibadar farming area. Earning his Life Membership, Col served as Tournament Director in past years, as well as holding the positions of Club Captain, and Club President.

The Club will be directing a portion of the day’s finances towards the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute and St John’s Anam Cara Oncology Centre.

1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Only research can improve the treatments and outcomes for patients. Diagnosis and treatments are improving all the time. But while this disease kills, research must continue.

FECRI’s Professor George Kannourakis said, “As a non-government funded research facility, we rely on community donations and generous people fundraising, for our work to continue our important research.”

FECRI currently has 10 PhD students from Federation University and 10 senior scientific staff. Recent achievements of FECRI have included:
• Identification of potential new immunotherapy targets for ovarian cancer
• Identification of a new immune cell subset in histiocytic disorders.
• Further immune studies in various cancer and leukaemias.
• Identification of a new method for isolating new viruses.

Teams will travel from all over the District and representatives from the Institute are looking forward to coming out to Skipton to help with some of the novelty fundraising ideas.
