Appco Group tee off for good cause
December 8, 2011
Appco Group NZ has been applauded for its support of the 2011 KFC Grilled Anita Boon Pro-Am. Appco Group NZ donated $NZ1000 to sponsor a hole in the tournament.
Enthusiastic amateur golfers from around New Zealand joined Australia's and New Zealand's best professional female golfers for the Pro-Am on November 3-4, 2011.
The annual Pro-Am celebrates the life of Anita Boon, a vivacious 36-year-old professional golfer who passed away in September 2009 with ovarian cancer. This hugely popular event allows amateur golfers to play alongside New Zealand's professional women golfers - this year the event was extended to two days allowing a mixed field to test their skills against the professionals.
The Board of the New Zealand Professional Golfers Charitable Trust has thanked Appco Group NZ for its generosity.
"We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Appco for your support of this year's 2011 KFC Grilled Anita Boon Pro-Am," the trust said.
"We had a tremendous response from sponsors and supporters and are pleased to announce that together we raised $10,000 for Anita's chosen charity - The New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation."

At Appco Australia, we love it when others succeed and we believe the best business and career ideas stem from passion. In light of Tesla recently winning the South Australian energy storage project (with a bold proposition), we’ve used Elon Musk’s motto of “when something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour” as inspiration for our tips for getting lift-off when your next eureka moment strikes.

At Appco Australia, we have a true appreciation for other businesses that reach their full potential. It’s a great way to stay motivated and also learn from other’s success. The story of all-Aussie gourmet muesli business, Carmen’s, reminds us of a common misconception we can all learn from.
