$501 for $2,300 worth of Golf?? Swing to Swim starts with seismic splash!
Posted by Vietnam Swans on January 8, 2012
Yesterday, the Swannies kicked off our 2012 season with the Inaugural Vietnam-Australian Friendship Match against the Southern Dragons (congratulations to the Dragons for winning a keenly contested match).
Swannies’ National President, Phil Johns, was delighted to announce during the after-match presentations that Montgomeire Links, Danang, and the Swannies have decided to make a seismic splash with respect to the upcoming 2nd Annual Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day and Dinner Fundraiser which will be held on 17 March, 2012.
Montgomerie Links has very generously donated a Corporate Golf Package to the cause that includes:
- Complimentary 18 hole Green Fees for 20 players
- $100 F&B Credit
- Free Driving Range balls before round.
- 12 month validity
- Conditions: Not Redeemable on weekends before 11am or on the Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day.
- Value: $2300.
This package could be yours for just $501! We are currently accepting bids for this golf package until 5pm on Monday 16 January. Please email Phil Johns at email@example.com Obviously, the highest bidder will win the package. The Swannies have kicked off proceedings with a bid of $500.
Where does the money go?
All money raised will be shared equally between Swim Vietnam and Swim Safe (Royal Life Saving Society of Australia). As you will be aware, more children die in this country from drowning than road accidents. These two organisations are doing a special job in teaching kids to not only survive but thrive in the inland waters and long shore line of this country.

Details of the 2012 Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day and Dinner Fundraiser
The Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day and Dinner will be held on 17 March 2012 at Montgomerie Links. Like last year, there will be loads of competitions, prizes and fun on the golf course during the day. For those of you who think golf is “a good walk ruined”, don’t worry. It will all come together for you when the sun starts to set and the band starts up in the evening. We’ll be seated outdoors overlooking the magnificent fairways and greens of Montgomerie when a sumptuous dinner will be served. We will also have an auction of some amazing items to raise further funds to support the swimming. Last year, auctioneer, Micky Francis provided some hilarious entertainment during the proceedings. It was an absolute highlight of the evening.
Full details are still to be announced but as a guide, please see last year’s 2011 Swing to Swim Charity Golf FundraIser.
