- Nomads Golf Day supporting Bowel Cancer and Jack Newton Junior Golf.
Australian Red Cross NSW & QLD Floods Appeal
Emajin Golf’s Flood relief golf day in support of the Australian Red Cross and all those that had been affected in the NSW/QLD floods was a massive success. All proceeds from the day that included a full round of golf at the prestigious Concord Golf Club, followed by a two course meal, prizes, raffles and much more were donated to the Australian Red Cross Flood Relief. All those that attended had an amazing time whilst feeling great that they have supporting a worthy cause.
Girls from Oz
The Girls from Oz (g-oz) program, uses a tried and tested performing arts engagement model developed over 30 years by the Australian School of Performing Arts, to engage and re-engage females living in some of the most at-risk communities in Australia. We have supported our partner Atria Real Estate, to support g-oz provide employment outcomes for students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women.
Emajin Golf is proud to support the Shitbox Rally. Raising money for Australia’s most exciting cancer research projects that have the highest and potentially significant impact on those affected by cancer.

BNI Gala Supporting Australian Children’s Music Foundation
The power of music should never be underestimated. Australian Children’s Music Foundation raises money for children wanting to get into and pursue music as a career, a very worth cause!
Charlie Teo Foundation
Charlie Teo Foundation supports brain cancer research.
Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer. The worst type of brain cancer, GBM, is also the most common and has an average survival of only 15 months from diagnosis.
Whilst Bayley House has been providing support and services for over 70 years, there is significant work still to be done. Every day, people with disability are stigmatised, marginalised, underfunded and excluded from communities. The results of this are devastating and include the fact that 50% of people with intellectual disabilities are chronically lonely.
Bayley House provides exceptional services that actively support people living with a disability to realise and reach their goals and dreams.
