Go golfing for the museum
After a successful first year open to the public, Mangawhai Museum is fundraising through a golf day to help it continue to have something new to offer each year in its displays.
The Museum golf tournament will be held at the Mangawhai Golf Club on Friday March 11 and Mangawhai Museum and Historical Society chair Christine Bygrave says the funds generated will be used to refresh the changing exhibitions area.
“Each year we will be incorporating a different display into the Museum – like the sinking of the Niagara which we have featured in our first year.
“It does take people quite a few hours to absorb all the fascinating displays we already have, and so we see lots of repeat visitors. We want to make sure that people who come back in also have the opportunity to see new displays from time to time.”
The golf tournament will be a major fundraiser on the Museum’s annual programme and will feature prizes and auction items.
The Museum is self funding, and an essential part of its ongoing operations is an annual calendar of fundraising events to contribute to the revenue earned by the Museum so it pays for all its operations.
The Museum appreciates the support of two major sponsors, Craig Matheson of Barfoot & Thompson, and Westmoreland Homes, whose contributions will do much to ensure the success of the golf day.
Among an array of auction items at the golf day will be Air Vanuatu tickets for two people to travel to Vanuatu, vouchers for accommodation at Sea Breeze Studios and Mangawhai Chalets, and a meal for two people at the Sandbar and Grill.
Entries for the golf tournament cost $60 and are made at the Mangawhai Golf Club shop.
