AIP Charity Golf Days confirms event dates
The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), in conjunction with the APPMA and the SCLAA, recently announced the dates of the 2012 New South Wales and Queensland charity golf days. The golf days can be seen as a thank you to staff, a day with clients or an opportunity to network with others in the industry.
In its fourth consecutive year the AIP New South Wales annual charity golf day will be held on Wednesday the 19th of September, 2012 at the Camden Lakeside Country Club and is members and non members to attend. Sponsors to date include: Linde, Bluestone Recruitment, Chep, Century Yuasa, Strategix Training Group, Viscount Plastics and Wellman Packaging.
About the charity
Each year there are over 600,000 child admissions made to hospitals across Australia. Sadly, Starlight reaches only 1 in 3 of these children. Starlight’s ultimate goal is to reach each and every child. 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. Physical recovery is only part of the solution. Starlight delivers innovative programs designed to make children happy and lift their spirits when they need it most. Starlight brings fun and laughter to children no matter what their illness or where they live.
Now in its 17th year, the AIP Queensland annual charity golf day will be held on Friday the 19th of October 2012 at Carbrook Golf Club. This golf day has been running now for over sixteen years and has seen thousands of dollars raised for many charities.
Proceeds from the Queensland 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 7th of December. This will be the third year for this very successful initiative in 2010, whereby 600 Hampers with a retail value of $95.00 each were packed by over 80 volunteers at our annual Xmas party. 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 sectors needs.
