THIS Sunday they will put down their calculators and spreadsheets and pick up a golf club all in the name of supporting one little boy who desperately needs help.
Orange’s bankers will head to the greens this Sunday to play a charity round of golf to support 19-month-old Zac Robinson who is in desperate need of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
Zac has been through a lot in his short life and suffers from a rare immune deficiency Hyper IgM Syndrome, which doesn’t allow his little body to fight infection.
Bankers from St George, Orange Credit Union, Westpac, ANZ, NAB, Great Building Society and Bendigo Bank will take part in the golf match.
St George Bank Orange branch manager John Pielich said they had 80 people already lined up to play and raise money for Zac.
“We saw the articles about him at work and thought it was a good opportunity to raise money and get behind him,” he said.
“If we can get $3000 to $3500 I think that’d be great.”
Mr Pielich said all funds raised will go to Zac’s family to help cover costs as he seeks treatment in Sydney.
Following the nine-hole golf match at Wentworth Golf Club there will be trivia, raffles, a sausage sizzle and live music by Dallas Webb and Matt Holland.
“We’ve received a lot of support from local businesses who have donated goods for the raffle,” he said.
St George Bank customer service specialist Alana Johnston said they had received an amazing amount of support from the Orange banking community.
“It’s a good thing to support people in your local community,” she said.
Cost to play golf is $40 per person and the public are welcome.
Golfers are asked to arrive at 8.30am for a 9am tee off.
