Pink Texas Fourball - McGrath Day 2014. The Kiama Lady Veterans promoted a Pink Texas Fourball on July 12 in aid of The McGrath Foundation. Members and visitors supported the day with 198 players taking to the fairways and supporting the raffle held for the event.

Many teams dressed in pink vying for the best-dressed pink team that was won by the Burgess family from Sydney. The amount raised for the McGrath Foundation was $ 3,161, a great result!. Thank you to all the members and visitors who supported the golf day and to the many social members who supported the raffle.

 

KIAMA residents are again being urged to “stand their ground” when it comes to feeling comfortable with their own decisions surrounding not drinking or providing alcohol to young people.

The Kiama Stop Underage Drinking Project has updated their campaign with new posters, while utilising their website and social media to help bridge the gap between perception and reality with regard to views on underage drinking.
