A golf day will be held on Sunday in memory of a local nine-year-old and to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.
The four-man ambrose will begin at 11pm at the BH Golf and Country Club to raise money in the name of Will Kuerschner, who died from leukaemia late last year.
The president of Club Legion, Bill Graham, said the event was being staged by the club with the help of local businesses.
Mr Graham said the money raised would also help build a village to accommodate cancer patients in Adelaide.
He said the club and other businesses had donated hundreds of dollars worth of trophies for the event.
Club Vice-president Les McQuillan is encouraging everyone to come along and attend the day.
"We're encouraging lots of people to come out ... it is for a worthy cause," Mr McQuillan said.
"We're hoping for some good weather. It has been forecast for a good day on Sunday ... we hope it is sunny," he said.
Howard Steer has donated a painting valued at $900 which is being raffled and the winner will be drawn on Sunday.
Prizes will be available for the top ladies' team and a perpetual shield will be given out in memory of Will.
There is also a $500 open order hole-in-one on the second hole only, according to Mr McQuillan.
Food and refreshments will be available on course and nibbles will be available after the game.
The day will cost $20 for members, $25 for non-members and $10 for juniors.
Mr McQuillan and Mr Graham extended their thanks to all who donated for this event.
