After the success of AFL legend Neale Daniher’s Big Freeze events in the past, the Bendigo Golf Club will host its own Big Freeze and Golf Day on Friday, September 28.
The event will help raise money for the Les and Jules Crew, who will be taking part in the Daniher’s Drive event in October.
Organising committee member Mick Taylor says the event is aiming to raise money for a good cause.
“The idea is to raise as much money as we can [For Julie and Les]… Les was diagnosed with MND in January and we want to do our best to raise as much money for him and Julie as we can,” Mr Taylor said.
The day will start at 10.30am with the Big Freeze slide starting at 10.45am.
A number of local celebrities are lined up to take the plunge, including Bendigo club pro Brad Wilson.
“Mick’s very passionate about the charity and he asked me to be involved and I said yes definitely,” Mr Wilson said.
Participants will then be invited to play a round or two of golf at the club, whether it be on their own or in a team.
The entry cost is $100 per head or $200 for a team.
A barbecue and drinks will also be available throughout the day.
