Sirens of Silence Charity Golf Day 21 September 2018 in Broome proved to be yet another successful locally supported event, backed by our amazing Sponsors, Supporters and all those 'great' golfers, 'keen' golfers, 'novice' golfers and those not so good at golf.
The success of the day would not have been possible without the generosity of all involved, resulting in an astonishing $7,000 raised through sponsorship, raffles and fundraising.
Thank you to all involved, those who donated goods for prizes or become valued sponsors for the day and became 'a part of the community that helps us save those who save you'.
