The highlight of the Quiksilver Foundations presence at the pro was no doubt the First Annual Golf Day Classic with Landrover, Olympus and Coastalwatch on board as the major sponsors. Over 130 players participated in the day everyone was having an awesome time with Corona's flowing throughout the course, Tequila shot for shot hole, Olympus nearest to pin, Quiksilver & Roxy free watch giveaways and a chance to win $25,000 for a hole in one with Oakley. To wrap up the day more food and drinks were severed followed by an Auction.
Together with funds for the Queensland Flood Appeal being raised at the Golf Classic we also donated all funds from the Foundation product in the Quiksilver Foundation marquee during the event. We also called upon our food vendors in the event Nandos, Raw Energy and our own Retail Roxy & Quiksilver Merch tents to contribute a total of 10% of their profits towards our pledge. Prior to the pro the Foundation also reached out to our staff members to encourage them to donate to the Flood Appeal and the Foundation would match dollar for dollar.
Our total donation was handed to Events Queensland by our Strategic Partnerships Manager Jamie Wood in the sum of $46,203.83 to the Premiers Queensland Flood Appeal.
