The 7th annual VJs golf day hit a hole-in-one, raising money for a charitable cause close to many women in New Zealand. Ninety-two VJs customers and suppliers came together for a fun day of ambrose golf, competing in teams, where the ultimate winner was The Breast Cancer Foundation.
Last year, when the cause became personal, VJs Managing Director Craig Bridgman decided it was time to take action.
“Our motto is about making people’s lives easier, but I reckon we can help to make people’s lives better too. That really hit home when Vicki was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were humbled by the support we received from our suppliers and customers. It meant a lot to us. So, we saw a great opportunity in our annual golf day to raise awareness, and a few dollars, for an important cause.”
The day was such a success, Craig plans to continue to make the VJs annual fixture a charity event.
“I’m blown away by the generosity and commitment of all the participants on the day. There were a heap of sponsors and a lot of donated prizes for the table and auction. I’d like to give a huge shout out to Harcourts, Noel Leeming, Total Oil, Pacific Hygiene, Cottonsoft and Kemsol for sponsorships and donations, but everybody got in behind the cause and contributed so much. Together, we raised $5000 for The Breast Cancer Foundation.”
“To everyone who made the day possible, on behalf of myself, Vicki and the team at VJ Distributors, thank you all so much. We look forward to doing it again next year and raising even more.”
