The 11th annual McLardy McShane Golf Day was held on Friday 8th May at Portsea Golf Club. The event certainly lived up to its reputation with plenty of fun and fundraising for The Reach Foundation and Cure for MND Foundation.

A keen field of 130 golfers participated in some healthy competition at each sponsored hole. The golf, networking and fun on the day is always a highlight as was the spectacular dinner at Hotel Sorrento sponsored by CGU.

Over $22,000 was raised over the course of the day though the generous contribution from sponsors, insurers and clients.

The capacity filled room of 150 guests fell silent as they heard tales of strength and determination from Ashley Clark of Reach and Neale Daniher. Ashley spoke about the incredible support and encouragement Reach provided during her time of need which subsequently led her to be a member of the Reach crew herself. Mike Sheahan then led Neale Daniher into discussion about his personal experience of living with Motor Neurone Disease and the remarkable work he’s involved with to raise awareness and much needed funds for research to find a cure. Guests were then entertained as Terry Daniher gave some insight into his family and football.

Don McLardy, Managing Director of McLardy McShane Insurance and Financial Services, is continuously moved by the support the insurance industry shows, “I’m thrilled to see how so many in the insurance industry are inspired to contribute to these causes. With this fantastic support, I am confident that these foundations will continue to have significant impact.”

2014 Golf Day

The tenth Annual McLardy McShane Golf Day was held on Friday 9th May and certainly lived up to its reputation as the best golf day in the industry. A record number of the nation’s best insurers got behind the charity event which raises funds for McLardy McShane’s long-time charity partner, The Reach Foundation.

A remarkable field of 136 golfers turned out to the event, which was held this year at Moonah Links and for the first time on a Friday.

With the large numbers making for a slow round, the focus was never to be on the standard of golf. For that reason each sponsored hole had a competition allocated that provided a good dose of fun and healthy competition on the day.

This year we thrilled to be introduced to St Kilda Youth Services HEAT Catering by their new CEO (and Reach Alumni) Trisha Silvers. HEAT provides a practical education program for disadvantaged youth that helps them achieve their Hospitality Certificate II and training to equip them for the workforce. Keen to support this venture, we engaged HEAT to run the on course BBQ at this year’s Golf Day. Golfers flocked to the marquee to re-fuel and learnt a bit more about this fantastic program from our chef and recent HEAT graduate Bek.

The golf, networking and fun of the day is always a highlight however the involvement with The Reach Foundation is what really makes the day memorable. Members of the inspiring Reach crew attended the day and shared their stories at the dinner at Portsea Pub sponsored by UAA.

The room of 170 guests were silent as they heard tales of strength and determination of the young Reach participants who had faced obstacles at such young ages that many of the guests could have never imagined. Over $24,000 was raised over the course of the day though the generous contribution from sponsors and clients including Sportscover, Lumley, CGU/NTI, QBE, Your Claim, Veo, Allianz, Macquarie, Atradius, Sports Underwriting, Miramar, Nautilus Marine, UAA, Mecon, Zurich, Lumley Finance, Brooklyn Underwriting, Hollard, Insuret and Accident and Health.

The McLardy McShane team along with The Reach Foundation are, incredibly grateful for the support of all guests and sponsors who attended. The day is booked again for 2015 on May 8th, so save the date!

In the meantime re-live the fun of the day through the photos!
