I rise today to show some appreciation for the Werribee Rotary Club, who held their annual charity golf day on Friday at the Werribee Park Golf Club. I attended a dinner that evening with some 120 very, very tired golfers who had shared a great day of golf for a great cause. The golf day is an annual event run by the Rotary Club of Werribee. This year, as was the case last year, the funds will go to assisting homeless youth in our community.
I would like to thank Wendy Roper, the president of Werribee Rotary; Graham Roper, her husband; Roman Koslowski; and Ross Conley, who all worked tirelessly to put the day together. They were very pleased to have exceeded last year's target of $20,000, this year raising $23,000 to support Whitelion and its support of homelessness in my community. The money raised by Rotary will go to assist in funding a rental property, a three-bedroom residential property, where young people are looked after with outgoing costs and rent as well as support for those young people to find independent living of their own.
