Charity Dinner

2017 saw the re-introduction of the Putt Putt Regatta Ball. It was a very successful event with a great night being had by all and in excess of $5,000 was raised for the Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia. A great deal of feedback was received regarding the evening and the Committee has endeavoured to respond to your suggestions. It is intended to again run the event in 2018 and the Putt Putt Regatta Charity Dinner will be run on Friday 19th October at the Davistown RSL. We are looking to repeat the success of the 2017 event and our chosen charity will once again be the Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia.

Entertainment on the evening will be provided by the Kristy Coote band and some other entertainment surprises.

Tickets to the Charity Dinner will be $50 per head and will include a 3 course meal and a drink on arrival.

Further details will be available later in the year and will be posted on both this website and on Facebook.

    Put Putts are alive and well on Brisbane Water. Some of the most used Putt Putts in the area are Grand Tourer, Scallywag, Imp and Dodi. Each Friday – rain, hail or shine – one of these boats along with a normal (some might say abnormal) crew of 3 all dressed in Hawaiian Shirts can […]
