It will be a 4 ball ambrose (groups of 4 play the best shot each time!) and will cost $35 per player which includes the game, 1 entry into the raffle and a BBQ lunch afterwards! There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Bradman, longest drive and closest to the pin. Get your teams together and email me with your winning team name!! Golf buggies booked via Sandy Gallop direct: 3281 8544 Alcoholic beverages can be purchased on the day There will also be raffles, a fabulous cake stall and a pamper section for the non-golfers! I'm also looking for businesses to sponsor holes or anyone who wishes to donate a raffle prize to help make the day a success, every little bit helps! Neonatal Hemochromatosis (NH) is a condition which occurs whilst the baby is developing in the mother's womb. Toxic levels of iron accumulate in the liver as well as other places in the unborn baby's body. NH is usually deadly to the unborn baby but if born alive, in most cases kills the baby in the first weeks or months of the baby's life. The risk of a woman having another NH baby after having her first NH baby is greater than 80%. Currently there is no test for NH and the condition is not hereditary – so unfortunately it could happen to anyone. The good news is that new research has provided a treatment for such women who become pregnant again, permitting them to have a healthy baby in the future. In the meantime, researchers at Lurie Children’s Hospital are also searching for a way to screen pregnant women and detect first time unsuspecting NH mothers before they give birth to a severely ill NH baby, so that the pregnant woman may be treated early in her pregnancy to prevent the first child from being affected with NH or experiencing life threatening complications and death. Many babies have been lost to this disease worldwide – let’s raise funds and awareness so this doesn’t keep happening! (Information provided by
