Drakes raises over $75,000 for Ronald McDonald House

Drakes’ eleventh annual charity golf day has raised $75,618 in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland (RMHC SEQ).

Over 150 suppliers and Drakes employees came together for the day, to raise funds and awareness for RMHC SEQ, which provides vital support for families navigating the challenges of their child’s medical journey.

Emma Thompson, CEO of RMHC SEQ, said the Drakes charity golf day is one of their most anticipated fundraising events.

“Thanks to this longstanding partnership, Drakes has been able to fund over 2,500 nights of accommodation for families with ill or injured children. We are so grateful for Drakes’ ongoing support and unwavering commitment to the charity. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.”

Participants enjoyed various games throughout the day, with prizes awarded for nearest to the pin, longest drive, and straightest drive. The competition also included 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards, along with a range of lucky door prizes.

Mark Meszaros, Queensland State Manager, thanked those involved and expressed his pride in the event.

“The Drakes team are very proud of this event and what has been built over many years to support the families who need RMHC SEQ, we could not make this happen without the outstanding support of our supply and service providers, so to them it is a heartfelt thank you.”

Since the inception of Drakes charity golf day in 2013, Drakes has raised more than $500,000.
