Woking, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2013
Inchcape Lexus are celebrating the success of One More Hill’s first PRO-AM Charity Golf Day, which raised over £53,000 for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) treatment research!
The grand event took place on 21st May 2013 and was hosted at Woking Golf Club. Partnering the event, Inchcape Lexus donated towards the £53,000 total donation and put up a luxury 2013 plate Lexus RX for the prestigious Hole in One Car.
The PRO-AM Golf Event featured 20 of the South of England’s leading PGA professionals, including Calum Callan, Craig Cowper and Jonathon Didlick. A total of twenty teams, each with one professional and four guests, enjoyed a fantastic day of golf, playing for great prizes and the kudos of victory!
After a close 18 holes, the winning team included Ken Hanna, Stuart Milton, Michael Kelly and Graeme McMahon, with Runners Up Michael Tuohy, Kevin Tuohy, Alan Boe and Steve Harley.
To end the day in style, a grand auction was held to boost donations to a massive £53,000 for One More Hill. A UK based charity, which sends all donations from events like the PRO-AM Golf Day to help fund research into treatments for Multiple Sclerosis. Amongst the auction prizes were tickets to the Live Final of the Voice, a once in a lifetime work placement at Universal Studies, a day with the Team GB four man bob sleigh team and Tickets to The Masters, 2014.
In addition to this, Inchcape Lexus Guildford partnered with the event, providing the prestigious Hole in One Car – a 2013 Lexus RX!
Wendy Preston, Lexus Guildford Centre Manager said “We are delighted that the event was a huge success. At Inchcape Lexus we are very proud to be involved in raising so much for One More Hill and Multiple Sclerosis research. We are already looking forward to supporting future events.”
Founded by David and Graham after losing their mother to MS 30 years ago, One More Hill splits all donations equally between the two UK Myelin Repair Centres, based in Cambridge and Edinburgh. MS is caused by the breakdown of Myelin around the nerve fibres of the central nervous system and with support from charities like One More Hill, MS treatment has advanced hugely in the past few years, allowing scientists to test drugs that repair Myelin and help to halt the progress of MS. With over 100,000 people in the UK who are diagnosed with MS, and 2 million more people who are affected by it, events like this can go a long way towards making a big difference.
