Once again, we are running a Charity Golf Tournament to raise vital funds for Cancer Research. This time it will be at the fabulous Bonville International Golf Resort in Coffs Harbour.

Bonville GC - Hole 17
Since 2005, we have together raised substantial funds which have been used by Professor Robin Anderson and her team to further breast cancer research.
Last years effort has contributed to the purchase of a new 10X Genomics Chromium System. Once Robin's team has learned how to drive the machine we "Beanie People" will be invited to ONJ Research Centre to learn how our efforts will assist the research.
Of course, we cannot rest on our laurels- so it is time to get together again, have some golfing fun, and raise more funds...

Please Note:
We have accessed all pricing at industry rates and charged you the recommended retail price.
The Travelling Golfer will donate any profit (margin) we make to the charity.
We (the Wood family) pays 100% of all our costs for our attendance at the event ourselves, thus ensuring all profits go to the charity.




Flight schedules for October 2019 for the commercial airlines have not been released at this stage, although we have had discussions with both commercial airlines, and charter firms who operate this route. 
It does appear very likely that one commercial airline will be able to accommodate us for the direct flights on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at a very reasonable cost (likely a few hundred dollars). We will announce this as soon as it is finalised. 
As Bonville Resort only has limited dates that can accommodate our group, we need to book the course and accommodation NOW to ensure the Beanie event can happen.

Beanie Charity Winners 

Many of you would be aware that Heather and I have coordinated the charity tournament known as "The Beanie" for many years. Each year our happy group of golfers have gathered to compete for the prestigious trophy, have a great time, and along the way managed to gather significant funds to the benefit of breast cancer research, previously at Peter MacCallum Institute, and now at Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Centre.


We have funded the purchase of a microscope, and the ongoing employment of vital researchers. 


Professor Robin Anderson is a senior research scientist working at Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Research Centre on the most insidious forms of breast cancer, and it is Robin's team that we are committed to assist.

There is no question that the work Robin and her team do is valued by society, yet as well as managing her team of researchers and postgraduate students, and maintaining contact with other breast cancer experts around the world, Robin is also expected to help raise the funds required to keep her research program viable ... and this is where we can help in a meaningful way.

Join us for a fun few days, and contribute to a most worthy cause.
