Blues tee off for a cause

Women's Footy | Hosking twins AFLW players Sarah and Jess Hosking joined the team on Women's Footy.

BIRDIES, eagles, albatrosses – it wasn’t about the score at the inaugural MC Labour Golf Day!

More than 75 participants took to the Green Acres Golf Course last week to raise money for the Blues’ CARLTON RESPECTS program – an initiative which aims to promote gender equality for the prevention of violence against women.

Guests competed in a ‘longest drive’ and a ‘nearest the pin’ competition, while also having the chance to win a car if they were skilled enough to get a hole-in-one.

A special Carlton Respects hole was created to educate participants about the initiative, while the Club’s General Manager of People, Community, Diversity and Inclusion, Amanda Barker, spoke to the group about the importance of raising social awareness.
