Victor Harbor Times - Lehmann to Help Fleurieu
VICTOR HARBOR – In the name of charity, Darren Lehmann will lead the golfing pack at the Cricket4Cancer's upcoming event, 'The Lehmann Cup' to be held at at McCracken Country Club on Friday, April 22.
The event is an Ambrose style competition including breakfast, on course food and prizes, wrapping up with the Cricket4Cancer lunch.
The day is one of the many Cricket4Cancer events to raise $25,000 for the Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation (FCSF). Cricket4Cancer is the initiative of the McIlroy Auto Group.
“We're very excited about the Cricket4Cancer upcoming golf day,” principal of McIlroy Auto Group Derek McIlroy said..
“We managed to raise over $12,000 at our last event and are hoping for a similar outcome on April 22.
“The Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation desperately needs the community's support and I would love to see the community and local businesses come along on the day to join the fun.”
The Lehmann Cup commences with breakfast at 7.30am with a shotgun start at 8.30am.
The cost to enter a team is $550, through Danielle Wise at McIlroy Auto Group on 8552 1255.
The main objective behind Cricket4Cancer is to raise the running costs for the FCSF.

The Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation's principal purpose is to provide cancer patient transport to and from Adelaide for chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other related cancer treatments, which is not currently supported by the South Australian Government. FCSF also provides a men's and women's support group, moral support for sufferers and their families and a free wig service.
FCSF chair John Francis said volunteers are the backbone of the foundation and are critical to running the daily door to door transport service.
“We are so grateful for the financial support of McIlroy Auto Group,” Mr Francis said.
Mr Francis said the foundation currently runs three cars driven by volunteers on a roster basis transporting cancer patients to Adelaide for treatment.
“We transport more than 100 passengers a month,” Mr Francis said.
“The cost to offer the services we provide is $56,000 per annum and the foundation receives no government support or support from the Cancer Council of SA.
“This is why we are so appreciative to receive backing from local business, organisations and individuals so we can provide all our services. It is all due to donations.”
