The South Golf Club is raffling off a painting to raise money for the upkeep of the club.

President of the Club, Ian Sheehan, said the raffle was part of a special annual event - the “Will Kuerschner Leukaemia Foundation Open Day”.

The day is an Ambrose and costs $20 for each player.

“We are having an open day on March 8,” Mr Sheehan said. “The painting was donated by artist Phil Jones who is also a member of the South Golf Club.

“We are raffling off the painting with $1 tickets.

“Tickets can be purchased from the club.

“We also have meat raffles every Friday night from 5.30pm and Sunday from midday.”

Mr Sheehan said it would all go towards the maintenance of the club.

“We are hoping to raise whatever we can,” he said.

“We will also be displaying the painting in various places around town.”

Mr Sheehan said it was just one of the many fundraisers they held throughout the year.

“A lot of volunteer work goes into the club, thanks to the great Broken Hill community spirit.

“People are always very generous with their support and we thank them for their work.

“We wouldn’t survive without our volunteers.”

The club always made new members most welcome, Mr Sheehan said.

“We welcome everyone. You don’t have to be a South resident to play here,” he said.

“Our prices are very reasonable and we are family-friendly.”
