The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) have announced the dates of the New South Wales and Queensland charity golf days.
The charity event can be used by companies for the staff or clients and is also an opportunity to network with peers in the industry.
The charity golf days will aim to raise funds for different charities in NSW and Queensland.
The AIP/SCLAA New South Wales annual charity golf day will be held on Thursday, the 15th of September 2011 at the Camden Lakeside Country Club. Open to members and non members, the event will be sponsored by Linde, Viscount Plastics, Cormack Packaging, Reema, SSI Schaefer, Trojan Workforce, VersaCold and Wellman Packaging.
AIP NSW Charity Golf Days to support the Starlight program
Since being formed as an Australian children’s charity in 1988, Starlight has brightened the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families throughout Australia. Starlight programs are delivered both in and out of hospital, providing positive distraction to children in their time of need.
Starlight’s ultimate goal is to reach each and every child from the over 600,000 children who are admitted to hospitals across Australia each year.
Now in its 16th year, the AIP/SCLAA Queensland annual charity golf day will be held on Friday, the 30th of September 2011 at Carbrook Golf Club. This golf day has seen thousands of dollars raised for many charities. Sponsors to date include Fibre King, Strategix Training Group and Loscam.
AIP QLD Charity Golf Days to support Christmas Hampers initiative
Proceeds from the Queensland charity golf day will be used to assist with the provision of items to be packed into 600 Christmas Hampers as part of a Christmas function, which will be held on Friday, the 2nd of December.
A repeat of the very successful initiative in 2010, the hampers will consist of Christmas ‘cheer’, food and personal hygiene items and will be distributed to charities through Foodbank Queensland.
Foodbank is a not-for-profit organisation that supports over 300 charities in Queensland alone by acting as a conduit between the food and grocery industry’s donations and the welfare sector’s needs.
