from golf
Almost 120 people attended Auckland Airport's second annual retail golf day at Formosa Country Club on 22 February, all keen to secure some of the $80,000 worth of sponsored prizes up for grabs. According to Auckland Airport's retail commercial manager Scott White, the weather was not in the golfers' favour but it didn't dampen their spirits. "The 90 days prior to the event were bril iantly fine – every day since has been brilliantly fine. The day itself was like playing in a tornado! Nonetheless it was a very enjoyable day with a lot of networking and partnership building," says Scott. Nobody managed to secure a hole in one which meant the big prize, a VW EOS FSI car (valued at $55,000), was unclaimed. However, the winning team of Steve Reindler, John Wardle, Chris Hunter and Jeanette Carlton won a trip to Samoa courtesy of Pacific Blue airlines. Kidney Kids was the lucky charity, boosted by almost $5,000 raised on the day.
